Walt Disney World offers MyMagic+, FastPass+ and MagicBands to day guests

See also

On March 31, Walt Disney World (WDW) opened its FastPass+ reservations to Disney day guests, those visitors who are not staying onsite and do not have annual passes.

In order to use FastPass+, Disney guests need to sign in or create a MyMagic+ account through My Disney Experience. They must also have a valid WDW admission ticket to link with that account.

Day guests, like WDW Annual Passholders, are able to make FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days in advance. WDW hotel guests may make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance.

FastPass+ requires the use of a RFID-enabled ticket or a MagicBand, the chip-embedded wristband that works as a form of admission media and holds reservation information. Disney guests with older, non-RFID tickets may exchange their tickets at a WDW ticket booth or Guest Relations location; MagicBands are not required to use FastPass+.

Disney day guests do not receive a Magic Band, as do other admission holders. The Orlando Sentinel reports WDW day guests may also purchase a MagicBand for $12.95 at some park locations.

Disney guests staying at an onsite hotel and who purchase park admission, as well as WDW Annual Passholders, receive MagicBands as part of part of their admission package.

WDW day guests will have access to My Disney Experience apps and website while in the parks, so may use their mobile devices to make plans. In-park kiosks will be available for any guests who do not have access to smartphones, tablets or other devices.
