    Tips for a ONE DAY "turbo trip" please. Kids are 15, 11, & 9. It's been 7 years since our last visit. I'm a bit confused on the magic band vs fast pass. Plan is Magic Kingdom only. Not staying on park property.

    Hi Elizabeth!

    I am sure you and your family will have an amazing time at Magic Kingdom Park!  I highly recommend looking through the full list of attractions at Magic Kingdom Park.  This will help you see what you and your family want to experience most during your visit, which will also help you to choose your FastPass+ experiences!  

    FastPass+ allows you to choose up to three attractions or shows for each day that you have valid theme park admission.  With FastPass+, you are able to skip the regular line on your chosen attractions.  Once you have used your three selections, you can even make another selection!

    Since you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase a MagicBand online at ShopDisneyParks.com or on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app.  Once you link it to your My Disney Experience account online or using the My Disney Experience mobile app, your MagicBand keeps your theme park admission ticket and FastPass+ selections in one place, among other awesome things!  If you do not want to purchase a MagicBand, you will receive a card when you purchase your park tickets.  Once attached to your account, this card will also hold your FastPass+ selections and your theme park tickets.  I hope you have an absolutely magical visit!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
