    I am visiting Disney world in October with my family but we aren't staying at a Disney resort. Am I able to purchase a magic band to link my tickets/ memory maker photos to and if so do I need to get one for each person in my party?

    Hello Lara!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You must be excited for your fall visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! This time of the year brings amazing special events: Epcot International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Party. The event at Epcot is included with park admission, but you need to purchase separate tickets for the Halloween party at Magic Kingdom Park. They are already on sale, and I highly recommend making your purchase as soon as possible. 

    MagicBands are complimentary for Guests staying at Disney Resort hotels and annual passholders, but other Guests are welcome to purchase them and link their park tickets and Memory Maker. I always advise friends to get one because some attraction photos and other digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass are only available if you have a MagicBand. You do not need to buy one for every member of your party as they can use the regular cards. MagicBands are available for purchase at DisneyStore.com, Shop Disney Parks app, and select merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. Create a Disney account to activate your MagicBand and link your admission tickets, Memory Maker, and FastPass+ selections.

    I hope this helps you while planning! Please visit us real soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
