  • News Offsite guests can now use My Disney Experience to prebook FastPass

    The WDW site is full of bad information. But if you go to log into the My Disney Experience site, which requires a WDW account that you set up, you can link tickets to MDE. Offsite guests can make FP selections 30 days out. Then they need to purchase a Magic Band for $12.95

    Magic bands remain an included perk for onsite guests who can also book FP+ 60 days out.

        I BELIEVE THEIR DINING IS ONLY 90 DAYS IF STAYING OFF SITE CORRECT? I KNOW FOR ON SITE IT IS 180... :thumbup: I ONLY HAVE 8 MORE DAYS UNTIL I CAN MAKE MY RESSIES.... I WAS TOLD ONCE I COULD MAKE UP TO 10 DAYS FROM ARRIVAL...THE CM I SPOKE TO TODAY SAID I CAN MAKE THE DINING FOR ANY DAY UNTIL I LEAVE... WHICH IS COOL....SINCE I WILL BE THERE 14 DAYS

          MagicBands are optional, if you do not have one you can use your park ticket at the attractions for your FastPasses.

            I like this option.

                It used to be onsite guests were the only ones who got Magic Bands. Now APs also get them complimentary. Offsite guests can purchase them.

                  this and also more importantly the fact that those who do not stay on site can book fastpasses a month in advance of their vacation whereas prior to that booking fastpasses in advance was exclusive to disney resort guests and off site visitors would have to line up at the kiosks and book their fastpasses the old fashioned way. the one true perk of the my magic plus system for resort guests has essentially now been voided unless you know of course exactly what park you want to go to, where you want to eat and what attractions you want to ride and in what order for every day you stay there over a month out from your vacation...

                    You should keep the MB things seperate from FP+ - they really aren't dependent on each other. FP+ usage is by any RFID enabled media.

                    There are of course recent changes in both FP+ access and the ability to buy MagicBands... but the availability to buy MagicBands doesn't change anything about FP+

                    Right now, buying MagicBands is just offering 'convenience'. Certainly there will be later rollouts that will offer more features that are unique to the MagicBands.. like the interactive ride elements, etc. But today, very little benefit to them.

                      I have also heard thode that own Disney Infinity the video game can unlock something with a magic band. I have not been able to test this myself, nor do I know what it unlocks but it you are a DI owner that may be another "perk" to purchase a MB.

                        The MB just enables a piece of DLC in the game... nothing dramatic. And you can use any MB.

                          All dining reservations can be made at 180 days, the onsite advantage is the extra 10 day window for the rest of your trip.

                            Do you know if it will work post ticket validaty? We have MBs from our last trip but the annual pass that was on them have now expired.

                              Yes, there is nothing specific to the type of entitlements the MB enabled. It just knows it's a MB.. and poof. Given the advancements since then, even a RFID enabled ticket might work.
