    How do I activate a magic band I purchased at Shop Disney? Thanks in advance!

    Greetings, Sherry!

    Hear ye, hear ye: By royal proclamation, I would like to officially welcome you to planDisney! With mere hours to go until the clock strikes midnight on your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth, I bet you're feeling a little like Cinderella waiting for the ball to arrive. Are you counting down the seconds yet? I know I would be!

    I'm glad you found a MagicBand you liked on shopDisney, Sherry. I always like to purchase my MagicBands ahead of my trip so I can link them and be ready to dive into the magic the moment my feet hit the ground in Walt Disney World Resort. It sounds like that's true for you as well. Thankfully, linking your new MagicBand is as simple as bibbidi-bobbidi-boo! Make sure you are signed into your My Disney Experience account online and head to the Link Reservations and Purchases page. Choose “MagicBand” from the options, then follow through the remaining steps to link your MagicBand. Just so you know, you will need the ID number from the back of the MagicBand during this process and you will want to make sure you choose the correct individual from your Family & Friends List when assigning the MagicBand.

    Sherry, you’ll be at Walt Disney World Resort during one of my favorite annual events, the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. EPCOT truly never looks more beautiful than when it’s in full bloom, and there’s so much to see and do throughout the park. You can take a leisurely stroll around World Showcase sampling various sips and eats at the Outdoor Kitchens, search for topiaries of Disney characters, spend a while watching the butterflies flutter around Bambi’s Butterfly House, and so much more. You have to check it out!

    Enjoy making memories to last a lifetime, and we’ll see you real soon.

    May all your wishes come true,
