    attach a magic band

    Hi, Kerri!  Welcome to planDisney!

    What did we ever do without MagicBands?  They sure do add a level of convenience to our Walt Disney World Resort vacations!  No need to fumble through your bag or wallet to find a card.  With just a tap of your wrist, you can access your theme park admission or link your Disney PhotoPass Service pictures to your My Disney Experience account.  Your MagicBand will unlock some special surprises on certain theme park attractions, including auto-magically linking your attraction photos to your My Disney Experience account.  Also, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can use your MagicBand to unlock the door of your resort hotel room and to charge purchases to your room.  Yes, your MagicBand is the thingamabob that does the job, and linking it to your My Disney Experience account is as easy as Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!

    If you purchased MagicBands along with a vacation package, they will likely already be attached to your My Disney Experience account.  However, if you purchased them at a Walt Disney World Resort retail location or online from shopDisney, you will need to link them to your account.  If you haven't already done so, you can download the My Disney Experience mobile app to your phone.  Open your app and click on the three lines in the bottom-right corner of the home screen.  Next, scroll down and click on "My Profile," then select "MagicBands & Cards."  From there, you can select "Link a MagicBand or Card."  You will see an ID code on the back of your MagicBand.  You will need to enter this ID code in the app and assign the MagicBand to yourself or a member of your My Disney Experience Family & Friends List.  

    My kiddos just got new MagicBands as a Christmas gift, so I will be going through the process of linking MagicBands to My Disney Experience today as well.  Kerri, I don't think you will have any trouble attaching your MagicBands to your account, but if you do run into a problem, feel free to give the Help Center Cast Members a call.  They will be able to sort out any technical difficulties you might run into.

    Wishing you a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!
