    If I am staying at a Disney World resort but buying tickets from another site will i still get magic bands? And will i be able to link my park admission card to my magic band? Also will my fastpass+ be on my magic band?

    Hi Roxanne!

    All Guests who stay at Disney Resort hotels will receive Magic Bands.  You may purchase theme park tickets separately from Disney or from another authorized retailer and then link the theme park tickets to your Magic Band through My Disney Experience.  Once you have tickets linked to your account on My Disney Experience you may begin making FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance of your vacation.  

    After you link your theme park tickets and make FastPass+ selections, both items will be linked to your Magic Band.  Additionally you may link a credit card when you check into your hotel and use your Magic Band for purchases in the theme parks.  This ease of using one device for park admission, FastPass+ redemption, Dining Plan (as part of a vacation package only), and credit card purchases has made my Walt Disney World vacation truly magical.

    Here is a link for you regarding Magic Bands Frequently Asked Questions to help with further understanding how they work.

    Thank you for your question.  Please let us know if you have any further questions.  We at the Disney Parks Moms Panel love to help others plan their Magical Disney vacations!
