    We are staying off property this December and are trying to decide if we need the magic bands. What do the bands do for us if we are not staying in a Disney resort?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Adria! 

    I’m so excited to learn you are getting ready to visit the most magical place on earth during the most wonderful time of the yEAR! No one does the holidays like the Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you have a holly jolly holiday with Mickey! 

    Adria, though not necessary, MagicBands provide convenience and some added pixie dust during your visit. You won’t have to dig into your bags or pockets to pull out your admission card for entry, or to redeem your pre-booked FastPass+, since this magical technology is wearable. They also come in countless different colors and styles so you can show off your favorite Disney character, have them match your Disneybound outfit, personalize them, or just pick your favorite color. They even add some magic to your Memory Maker and PhotoPass when worn on select attractions.

    Start browsing now on the shopDisney site online or shopParks app so you can see what is available at the resort once you arrive.

    I hope you have an unforgettable time during your visit. For any additional questions, be sure to stop by and see us again soon. 

    Wishing you a magical day,

    Emille ºoº
