    Was wondering once i order these magic bands how the park tickets get linked to the band??? Im so nervous about these bands i am bad with all new technology I just know the basics??? Also is the fasr pass worth the investment???

    Hi Stacy,

    Glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Although technology runs through my veins, I will do my best to help you and ease your worries.

    MagicBands are awesome. They carry your Theme Park Tickets, your PhotoPass pictures and if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, they are your keys to your room and you can even use it to pay for things or use your Dining Plan meals.

    If you have a reservation for a Magic Your Way Vacation Package, the included Theme Park Tickets will already be linked to your reservation. If you have a room-only reservation and purchased Theme Park Tickets separately, then you would need to Link them to your My Disney Experience account. If you still have any doubts, you can speak to a Cast Member for more help at (407) 939-4357.

    Is FastPass+ worth the investment? ABSOLUTELY! Starting 30 days before your visit (60 days for Resort hotel Guests), you can reserve up to three FastPass+ per day for your favorite attractions, and then you will be able to skip the lines. Once you used them, you can make a new one. And then another one. And... Oh, and one more thing: the service is FREE!

    One last tip: if you are taking advantage of Disney's Magical Express, be sure to keep your MagicBands in your carry-on luggage, as you will need them to board your motorcoach. Happy planning!
