I guys! Random question.  My hubby is seriously considering a FL WDW/Universal vacation and NOT stay at a WDW hotel!! (for shame, I know). So, how do the magic bands work for just park tickets and what are the "rules" for fastpass reservations for non-hotel guests?
We stay off site frequently. You will have to get a magic band once you arrive at WDW, that means paying for it, if you want one versus the card type ticket. Also, you can do your FP online or the mobile app, just as if you were staying on site, but you can only do it 30 days out, if you are on site you get to do it 60 days out. When we go, I've found no issues doing it 30 days out. There might be one, maybe two rides that I couldn't get. And woo hoo on the trip!! - DizneyGirl  959.5 #8 11:45AM
Then it changed, because I remember it originally stating that only those staying at the resorts couldn't do it ahead. I know a lot of AP holders were mad about that, since they don't stay at a resort. Good that they changed it. - Lelundrial  687.0 #294 12:18PM
Thanks for the info.  I think if we opt for the bands, we might as well get the "designer" ones. - GoofyMom77  967.7 #197 12:34PM
I think they changed it pretty quickly after complaints. We could do it June of 2014, and I think the magic bands came out earlier that year? - DizneyGirl  959.5 #8 3:01PM
@GoofyMom77 - I would too! I'm not sure of the price difference, but it can't be that much and if you'll use them in future visits, all the better! - DizneyGirl  959.5 #8 3:03PM
We went in December 2013 for the boyo's 10th b-day and the magic bands had been around for just a few months. They still had the paper FPs at that point. - Lelundrial  687.0 #294 3:41PM
Unless it changed, you have to purchase a magic band at the resort. You then have to do your FP selections at the kiosks in the parks. I believe you can also do them on the app, but I won't guarantee that as I haven't used that thing. - Lelundrial  687.0 #294 11:17AM
We never rent a car.  We use all their transportation or walk.  This year we were able to walk to Epcot and Hollywood Studios.  It was awesome.  Don't like the buses so we took the Monorail and the boat, if it was possible, if not, we had to take the buses and they sucked.  We stayed on property so the car really wasn't necessary. - Winnie111286  15741.3 #3 9:00AM
Oh and by the way, cabana bay hotel it very cute and resonable up at universal😉 - mmddgp  1054.6 #7 3:32PM

Hello everyone! I need a favor! If anyone is going to WDW in the very near future, I need a personal shopper.  "Santa" would like to put a hand carved elephant from AK/AKL into my daughter's stocking.  I'll pay for it and shipping and a little extra for your trouble.  I looked on the "shop disney app" and they had the soapstone ones, but it was "in person only" :(
Happy to help, I'll send you a DM! - Andrea84  717.4 #10 1:29PM

HELP!!!!!!!!! I need some recon and possible personal shopper!!  I've seen in person at WDW and a couple times posted on the DL side a Donald Duck Christmas stocking.  It's not available online and my daughter needs it, she's had the same stocking for the last 10 years.  I would have bought it myself, but couldn't remember if I had already bought her an upgrade.  I just pu  More...
I would be happy to check, is it the stockings where it has a plush of the character's head at the top of the stocking? - Andrea84  717.4 #10 4:22PM

We had dinner with Cinderella and her step family. But my battery died shortly after some pictures of the Grand Floridian. Drezella betrothed herself to my little boy and gave him a huge kiss. He said it could stay for now, but it would need to be washed off before he saw his current crush Ariel.
AWww. Love that! Thanks for sharing. :). We had a blast at that dinner. So fun! - modisneyluv  16.0 #194 6:49AM
