    How do I activate my magic band online? A rep at Disney Springs told me to do it through my account. My husband and I are weekday select annual passholders. Thanks, Susan and Kenneth

    Hi Susan, and welcome to planDisney! I always love it when a fellow Floridian stops by to chat about Walt Disney World!

    It sounds like you and your husband treated yourselves to some stylish new MagicBands the last time you were shopping at Disney Springs. Now, all you need to do to activate your MagicBands is link them to your My Disney Experience account. I'll walk you through it right here!

    Hop on over to the "Link Your Reservations and Purchases" page on the Walt Disney World website and select "MagicBand." That will prompt you to sign in to your account, then take you to a page where you can enter the number on the back of your band. If you're having trouble finding it, you'll see a helpful diagram right on the page that highlights the location of the number. Next, you can assign the MagicBand to the proper Guest, then confirm. Do the same for your second MagicBand, and you're all set! As long as your Weekday Select Annual Passes are also linked to your account, you don't need to do anything else. Any and all MagicBands and Admission Cards you have linked will all match up and provide access to the theme parks. So, it's time for the fun to begin!

    I hope this helps you and Kenneth enjoy lots of magical days at Walt Disney World, Susan. Thank you so much for coming to see us, and be sure to stop by again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
