    We are going to WDW in October. We are not staying on Resort property. We will use FastPasses and will be park hopping. My question is whether the MagicBands would benefit us if we aren't staying at a Resort?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda!

    You have asked a great question! I am a huge MagicBand fan and love the convenience, even if I am not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. I can easily link my theme park tickets via My Disney Experience and not worry about keeping up with an admission ticket while touring the theme park. All I need to do is touch my active MagicBand to the Mickey touch points to gain entry to theme parks and FastPass+ experiences. I can also use my MagicBand to "collect" my Disney PhotoPass Service photos and attraction videos. It is such a relief knowing that each member of the family wears their own MagicBand, so I no longer have to be the "keeper of the Cards" during our vacation. We can focus on the fun and magic of our visits. 

    MagicBands and accessories are available throughout the Walt Disney World Resort at various merchandise locations. You can also find merchandise at the Disney Parks online store or using the new Shop Disney Parks mobile app. There are many MagicBands to choose from, and I am sure you will find the perfect one (or two) to show off your DisneySide! 

    Thank you for your question. Please let us know if other questions arise as you continue to plan your October visit. We are hEAR to help!

    Have a magical day!
