    Hi, our trip is soon and we're staying off property. I've already made some fast pass selections and I'm trying to decide if we should get the magic bands. How do we do our fast passes if we don't have magic bands? Thanks!

    Hi Liza (with a Z!),

    Looks like you are well on your way towards being ready for your trip and I am happy to help you continue your planning! MagicBands add a lot of convenience to your trip to Walt Disney World Resort. They will allow you access to your park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, and Memory Maker right from your wrist. However, you can still have a fantastic time if you decide to forego purchasing MagicBands, as my family chose to do this spring. If you do not have MagicBands, your park tickets will be in the form of a card. These cards can be used at the same touch points that MagicBands can be used at, including FastPass+ entry. Once you receive your cards, you can link them to your My Disney Experience account via the website or the mobile app so they will be associated with the FastPass+ reservations for each of your friends and family members on your account.

    Have a magical day and come back to see us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any other questions!
