    If staying off site and just buying park tickets and photo passes is a magic band even an option or is it just cards only

    Hi Veronica,
    So glad you stopped by to see us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands are one of the most amazing advantages of being at the Walt Disney World Resort. You don't have to stay on site to get a MagicBand-you can purchase one online prior to your arrival or pick out your favorite once you're finally here. Once you've chosen the perfect one, linking your new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account is easy. I love the freedom that comes with having a MagicBand-no more digging for cards when I'm ready to link to PhotoPass or ready to get on my favorite attraction with my FastPass+ selections.

    Veronica, I hope you find the perfect MagicBand for your upcoming trip. Come back and see us if you have any additional questions!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
