    How do I activate my disney wristband

    Hello Aelea! Welcome to planDisney! From unlocking the door at your Disney Resort Hotel, to gaining entry to the Disney Parks, to charging privileges when purchasing your favorite Disney merchandise, there is so much magic locked into your Disney MagicBand! I'll walk you through the steps of linking your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account! It's so easy, you'll be able to whistle while you work!

    Once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort website, point your mouse (love saying that) over the "My Disney Experience" logo located at the top, center right of your screen. When you do this a dropdown menu will appear. You'll want to select "Magic Bands and Cards." On that page you'll want to scroll to the bottom of the page where you'll find the option to "Link." Click "Link." On the next page to appear, you'll want to select "MagicBand." You're almost there! On the next screen, you'll be prompted to enter the ID number located on the reverse side of your MagicBand! Congratulations! You are one step closer to the magical vacation that awaits you in just two weeks!

    Aelea! You are beginning your Walt Disney World Resort vacation at a special time! Mickey and Minnie will officially kickoff the holiday season at their Florida home on November 6! As a special way to celebrate the magic of the season, Guests are welcome to take advantage of the Magic is Here vacation package! This special offer will result in vacation savings! If you've already booked your vacation, you can call a friendly Cast Member to inquire if the Magic is Here special offer can be applied to your existing reservation! We've tried this before some of our previous vacations. The Cast Members are always happy to help!

    Enjoy the magic available at the flick of your wrist! And, for some extra special magic, you can checkout shopDisney.com for a huge variety of MagicBands featuring some of your favorite Disney characters!
