    Trip is April 2015. Just read magic bands may be purchased for off site guests. Can I have a friend in Orlando buy them and ship them to me so I can link them to my D experience? Will be purchasing tickets and memory maker in a few months. Do they expire?

    Heigh-ho Rhea!

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. All the new announcements regarding MyMagic+ and FastPass+ have me excited! Your friend can absolutely purchase MagicBands and ship them to you. When he/she purchases the MagicBand, he will receive a unique number on the receipt in which you can then log into your My Disney Experience account and link your newly purchased MagicBand. You will get many of the benefits as Guests staying on-site; one feature that will not be available is charging privileges on the MagicBand.

    You don't need a MagicBand to make FastPass+ selections; your theme park tickets just need to be linked to your My Disney Experience account. You are certainly welcome to purchase them ahead of time though. I like the planner in you! 

    If you have any other questions, please come back and see us real soon. Have a magical vacation!
