    How do I add my hotel reservation to my magic band?

    Hi Christian! 

    Welcome to planDisney! We are so grateful that you are allowing us to play a teeny part in your Walt Disney World Resort vacation story. It's an honor. 

    It sounds like you have already reserved the perfect Walt Disney World Resort hotel for your crew and that you have the coolest accessory around, a MagicBand or MagicBand+. Now all you need to do is link the two and head off on your next big adventure. No problem! Let's get you on your way. 

    Your My Disney Experience account is the system that powers your MagicBand or MagicBand+. So, you will want to make sure that all of your vacation plans are loaded there. Anything loaded in your My Disney Experience Account should be easily accessible with your MagicBand or MagicBand+.

    To verify this, log in to your My Disney Experience Account and select "My Plans." If you do not see your Resort hotel stay listed, then select "Resort Hotel," and then "Link a Reservation." Enter your Confirmation Number and Last Name, and like Bibbidy-Bobbidy-Boo, your Resort hotel reservation should appear! 

    Christian, to make your arrival simple, now is the time to complete Online Check-in. Just find your newly-linked Resort hotel stay and Click the, "Start Check-in" button on the right. You will enter your phone number and email for notifications during your stay, such as when your Resort hotel room is ready! Now is the time to link a credit card to your stay, make any special requests, confirm your address, and let the kind Cast Members know about when you plan to arrive. 

    Once your Online Check-in is complete, then you can bypass the front desk on arrival and use that powerful MagicBand or MagicBand+ to go straight to your room and unlock the door! I love how Walt Disney World Resort makes everything so easy!

    I hope that helps! Let us know what other questions you have, Christian. We are always here! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
