    Hi. We will be visiting Disney very shortly with my family and I was thinking about getting the magic bands. Is it possible to get the bands even though we are not using annual passes or staying at a Disney Hotel? Thank you very much

    Hi Mariana!

    Absolutely, you can use a MagicBand at Walt Disney World to enter the theme parks and utilize Disney FastPass+ selections.  You do not need to be an Annual Pass holder or do you have to stay at a Disney Resort hotel.   You would, however, need to purchase your MagicBands, and this can be done at the Disney Store online or once you arrive at Walt Disney World.   Once you have your MagicBands you can link them to your My Disney Experience account along with your tickets.   If you do this far enough ahead of your vacation you can even make your Disney FastPass+ selections 30 days before you plan on visiting. Isn't that fantastic?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a such a great question.  I'd love to continue to help you plan your magical adventure.  If you have any other questions please pop in again.
