8.. You can purchase one without a resort stay or Annual Pass.
Disney won’t exclude you from the fun of a MagicBand, just because you aren’t staying at a Disney Resort hotel, and they won’t exclude you for not being the bearer of an Annual Pass either! All you need to do is purchase a MagicBand online at www.shopdisney.com or at any number of shops once you are in the parks. Then you can go online to your My Disney Experience account and link your tickets to your MagicBand. Just visit www.mydisneyexperience.com. If you have any problem linking your tickets, or if you have any questions about your band, you can call (407) W-DISNEY, or you can visit any Guest Relations location in the parks.
