    Hi! We're staying offsite but are hoping to get MagicBands for easy use of Memory Maker and FastPasses - how do we go about getting them? I know for onsite they're sent in advance. We also have a 3 y/o - would we have to wear hers also? Thanks!

    Hi Lisa!

    MagicBands are an amazingly convenient addition to an already magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Since you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase your MagicBands in advance at ShopDisney.com, on the Shop Disney Parks website, or on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app.  You can also purchase them when you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort!  Many of the shops throughout the resort have a small selection available.  Once you purchase a MagicBand, you can link it to your My Disney Experience account online so that you will be ready to use it as soon as you arrive!  

    If you would like to make and use FastPass+ selections for your little one, you will either need to have her MagicBand or her admission card with you.  If she would be ok wearing her own, MagicBands can be sized down to fit even the tiniest of wrists!  To use Memory Maker, only one person in your party will need to use a MagicBand.  You will be able to view and download Disney PhotoPass photos of everyone on your Family & Friends list!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
