Should I order Magic Bands if we are staying off property? Do we need them? I have some old ones from our last trip in 2018 - would they still work?

    Depending on how old they might not work for on ride photos that you can't tap after but otherwise for what you need; park entry, Genie+ tapping at rides if you buy it, tapping for photos or scanning for photopass photographers .... it should work fine and much easier than always pulling out your ticket.

    Should I get a single magic band just for purposes of using Photo Pass?
    If getting ride photos is very important to you, yes. Some are only available via MB. I have heard that the new Mobile Magic can also get ride photos but haven't tried it out for myself yet. I was there last month but due to knee surgery I was not riding much. I do use the phone for park entry.

    If you really don't care about ride photos much, then you'd probably not really need it. Some (most) still have tap points.
