    We are staying off property for our upcoming trip. Are magic bands needed? If so, what is the benefit of having them?

    Hi Teresa! Welcome back to planDisney!

    Oh Boy! Oh Boy! In two short days, you are arriving at Walt Disney World Resort during The World's Most Magical Celebration. Throughout all four theme parks search for the golden Fab 50 Character Collection or marvel in the new nighttime shimmering EARidescent wonder Beacons of Magic.

    While I love having a MagicBand to suit my mood or park visit for the day, it is not necessary to enter the theme parks. Available in the My Disney Experience App is the Disney MagicMobile service. First, link your theme park tickets and reservations to your My Disney Experience account. My fellow panelist Jennifer walks you through this process here. Next, select to set up a MagicMobile pass. You will be able to add it to your digital wallet on an eligible iPhone or smart device. Great news, you can follow the steps for all the members of your party and add them to your wallet as well.

    MagicMobile will gain you access to the parks, reservations, and Disney PhotoPass.

    If you want to go old school, no worries. Stop by Guest Relations located outside all of the theme parks with proof of ticket purchase for an admission card.

    Keeping it Magical,
