Those that purchase a Disney World Vacation package automatically get free Disney MagicBands. But what if you aren’t staying on Disney property? You might be wondering whether or not you should buy Disney MagicBands to use on your trip.
While not a necessity, there are reasons to buy a Disney MagicBand.
When you purchase a Disney MagicBand, you get to have some of the same perks like making FastPass reservations in advance (up to 30 days before your arrival) and using it to store your PhotoPass pictures.
All you have to do is link your Disney MagicBands to your park tickets through the My Disney Experience online system or app. It’s really quite simple.
Disney MagicBands can be purchased online and in various stores at Disney Springs.
Of course, they are also at the parks, but you would be best served to purchase them in advance of your Disney trip.
If you are going to purchase a MagicBand, I would suggest getting the Disney MagicBand 2.0.
It gives you the added benefit of wearing it multiple ways with MagicKeepers accessories.
Reasons to buy a Disney MagicBand
- If you are not staying at a Disney Resort but want an easy way to keep up with FastPasses and PhotoPass pictures, the Disney MagicBand is the way to go.
- If you are going to the park for a special celebrations (like a birthday) or your favorite holiday, a specialty MagicBand is a great way to showcase a special occasion.
- If you want to use it as an accessory to your Disney themed outfit or show off your favorite Disney character, why not wear them on your wrist?
- If you want a special souvenir you can use at the Disney Parks each time you go for years to come! These bands will last you for several trips to the park, so your one time purchase will get you years of enjoyment.
