    When will I be able to select my magic bands I'm doing a split stay at animal kingdom and grand Floridian

    Hi Hosea, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Do you love MagicBands as much as I do? This wonderful new technology provides guests a convenient and pleasing way to vacation as practically everything you need during your stay, from your Resort hotel room key, Park Tickets, FastPasses, Disney Dining Plan, or even room charging privileges can all be accessed from your wrist with a simple tap of your MagicBand. It truly is Magic!

    For your upcoming split stay at Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge and Disney's Grand Floridan Resort & Spa, everyone in your party will be able to order two MagicBands, one for each Disney Resort hotel reservation. As soon as your Resort hotel reservations are finalized, you will be able to customize your MagicBands right away. You can then expect to receive your MagicBands in the mail shortly before your vacation starts.

    Once you have made your Disney Resort hotel reservations, you will receive a confirmation number for each reservation. At this point, you can use your confirmation numbers to link your Disney Resort hotel reservations to your My Disney Experience account, at which stage you will then be able to customize your MagicBands. Under "My Account" in the My Disney Experience website, click on the "MagicBands and Cards" subheading. From here you will be able to customize the printed names and colors of the MagicBands for each member in your travel party.

    It's that easy! Don't forget to start making dining reservations 180 days in advance and FastPass+ selections 60 days in advance of your check in date.

    Wishing you a Magical Disney vacation!
