I'm in a state of confusion with the whole Magic bands, Fastpass+ situation going on at WDW. My boyfriend and I will be going to WDW in Sept. of this year, but we won't be staying at a Disney hotel; we found it cheaper to stay off-site for this trip. I know we won't be able to get magic bands and fastpass+ right now, since they are just for resort guest, but we have also heard rumors that by the time we get to WDW, paper fast passes will be extinct. How would people coming in from an off-site hotel, but still coming for multiple days to the parks, be able to use the new fast pass system? Are we not able to use it? Is it something completely separate from the magicbands, and fastpass+ is available to non-resort guests? Or is this something that everyone is in the dark, just as we are.
Sorry for all of the questions, but this whole switch to paperless fast passes makes me super nervous. The original fast pass is all I have ever known from DL. If anyone has any advice to this situation, let me know!
