    Hi! We are staying off site and I was wondering once I bought the tickets off line and I was to also buy magic bands can I like the paper tickets to the bands? So I won’t have to carry around the paper tickets and just wear the bands!

    Hi Samantha!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.  I am thrilled to see that you are finding our vacation planning advice helpful when charting out your Walt Disney World Resort adventure.   It's my pleasure to help a Guest from my home state of Alabama today.   

    In just a few weeks some family members and myself will be visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth as well.  During this trip we will be staying off site.   My mother-in-law has purchased tickets and some family members will reuse MagicBands from a past trip, while others are purchasing some to use.  You can do this as well.   In order to link your tickets to the MagicBands you will purchase you will need to create a My Disney Experience account if you have not.   Once you have an account created for you and your travel party you can link the tickets and MagicBands you purchase to this account as well.   From this point on, any information stored in your My Disney Experience account such as tickets or FastPass+ reservations can be accessed using your MagicBand.   Isn't that great?   There will be no need to carry around those paper tickets.  I do suggest you take a picture of the front and back of the tickets just in case there is a problem, you have access to the numbers on them.  

    Samantha I also suggest you download the My Disney Experience Mobile app on your smartphone.   By doing this you have access to a lot of fun features while on vacation including checking wait times, ability to add, change or modify FastPass+ selections and access to Disney Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering.     Isn't that great?   I hope this has helped.  Please let me know what other questions I can answer for you.  Helping fellow Guests is what I enjoy most.
