MagicBands

16. Single Rider

Single Rider lines are shorter and move quicker. In most cases you will be riding with strangers, who will quickly become a friend.  At some attractions cast members may call out for a single rider if Single Rider access line is not available.  This option is helpful for members of a group or family who do want to ride the thrill rides without using the Rider Switch pass.

17. PhotoPass

This free service is one of the most popular perks offered at Walt Disney World Resort.  Disney PhotoPass photographers are positioned at the most iconic locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  They are friendly, professional, and will get that perfect pose of the entire family.  You can link your PhotoPass card which you received from the photographer to your Disney account, MagicBand, park ticket, Memory Maker Card, or Annual Pass.  When you get home you can download and order all the photos you want, and you will be surprised when a special Disney character has magically appeared in some of your photos.

18. FastPass+

This is a unique service which allows you to reserve access to FastPass+ attractions and entertainment for each day that you have a valid theme park ticket linked to your Disney account.  Go to the FastPass+ entrance for the selected attraction or stage show during the designated arrival window time.  You can make FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days before your arrival, and 60 days in advance if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel.  You can also use the My Disney Experience app to make changes to your FastPass+ reservations.

19. MagicBand

MagicBands are all-in-one devices (soft plastic wrist bands in various colors) that unlock the door of your Disney Resort hotel, allow check in at FastPass+ locations, connect to Disney PhotoPass, and with a tap of your MagicBand, you can purchase food and merchandise at all Disney theme parks, water parks, Disney Springs, and Disney Resort hotels when linked to your Disney account.  Way to go, Disney!
