    Hi there just purchased value season tickets, but how do I get fast pass or magic band now? so confused:( Thank you!

    Hi, Trista! You have the first step of your checklist done, now let's get you moving on to the next part. Specific information about your family's MagicBands and FastPass+ selections is going to depend on if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Guests staying in one will receive complimentary MagicBands as part of their reservation. These MagicBands can even be customized right in My Disney Experience. Since I see you are a Canadian resident, please note that customized MagicBands will be picked up at the Resort hotel upon check-in. If you are not staying at a Resort hotel, then no worries! MagicBands can be purchased at merchandise locations all across Walt Disney World Resort. There are solid colors available, as well as ones adorned with your favorite Disney character. You can even stop by a MagicBand OnDemand station and have one customized in hundreds of different ways.

    FastPass+ selection will be completed 60 days in advance of your Resort hotel check-in date if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. Once you hit that magical 60-day mark, the FastPass+ booking calendar will extend to cover your entire resort stay. So, you could easily make all of your FastPass+ at once! If you are staying off-property, then you will make your FastPass+ selections 30 days in advance of each day you plan to visit a theme park. To make these selections, ensure that your theme park tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account and have been assigned to each member of your party.

    I hope this information helps you get another planning item marked off your list!
