    Hello and thanks for your help! My family will be staying at the Shades of Green in May. If you are not at an official Disney Resort can use still link your tickets and fastpass+ info to the magic band? Are the bands useful to guests staying off property?

    Hi Chris,
    So glad to hear you're visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! I have stayed at Shades of Green several times and already have a Magic Band because I'm an Annual Passholder. Yes, you can link your tickets and any selections you have made with Disney's FastPass+ service to your Magic Band, even if you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel.  I love being able to just scan my Magic Band and ride the attractions I've chosen using Disney's FastPass+ service rather than having to find my park tickets in my bag or my wallet.

    Thanks for coming to visit us here at the Moms Panel and feel free to come back and ask me any additional questions you may have about your upcoming vacation.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
