    We are staying off the resort but have tickets for 2 days, it is 2 adults and 2 kids. Can we buy just two magic bands for the kids and just the cards for the adults??? Thanks!!

    Hi Katie,

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question! I'm so excited for your family's upcoming vacation!

    I'm happy to let you know that yes, you will be able to use either a MagicBand or card for your park tickets and FastPass+ selections, so if you'd like to buy MagicBands for just your children, that's completely fine! Once you've purchased their MagicBands either online or once you arrive, you will simply need to link each MagicBand to a specific person in your My Disney Experience account.

    As a mom of five children, I LOVE that I don't need to hold onto each of their tickets, and they love having the ability to use their MagicBand to touch the sensors and watch the Mickey head turn colors, granting them access to the theme parks and their favorite attractions with FastPass+! MagicBands are super simple to use and also make great souvenirs. Did you know that they're also reusable and that the batteries inside them generally last for about two years? I'd be sure to hang onto them for any future Walt Disney World Resort vacations! 

    I hope you and your family have a truly magical vacation, Katie, and please let us know if you have any other questions!
