    Do you have to be staying at a Disney resort or an annual pass holder to utilize the Magicband? We are going at the end of Summer and have a large group going, it would be easier to utilize the bands.

    Howdy, Lisa! I’ve got some great news for you about MagicBands: any Guest of the Walt Disney World Resort Parks can utilize them for a multitude of services!.

    While Guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels can utilize MagicBand for a hotel room key and to purchase wares and meals within the Park, anyone can use the MagicBands to hold tickets, PhotoPass photos, FastPass+ reservations as well as dining reservations. These perks are so very useful to my family and me, even for single-day trips to Magic Kingdom. The MagicBands can be linked up (via an ID number) to your party’s My Disney Experience accounts, and it sounds like you know how to use those well!

    Solid colored and name-personalized MagicBands are complimentary when staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, but there are several places you may purchase a MagicBand for your family’s use! DisneyStore.com has a multitude of solid, patterned and themed MagicBands (which also serve as souvenirs!) and you can find several art-on-demand kiosks that also sell MagicBands in the Parks. My favorite location, with a great selection of bands, is Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. If you have your heart set on getting bands before you enter the Parks, you can also obtain MagicBands on the Shop Disney Parks App and have them shipped right to your home.

    If you have any other questions about MagicBands, please feel free to reach out to me. I’d be so happy to help! ~Lindsey P.
