    If I book a Disney room and purchase tickets elsewhere, where can I purchase Magic Bands? Is it hard to link our room reservation with the E-tickets? We're right in the 60 day window so I would like to make FP choices ASAP.

    Hi Jacqueline!

    Thanks for your question. The first thing you need to do is create an account on My Disney Experience. Once you have done that, you can begin adding every element of your vacation--Theme Park Admission Tickets, Disney Resort Hotel Reservation, Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ choices, Magic Bands and much more! As you add these, they will be linked to your account AND linked to all of the other items. For example, your Theme Park Tickets will be linked to your MagicBands. All you need to do is make sure everything is added to your My Disney Experience account.

    Once your Theme Park Admission tickets AND your Disney Resort Hotel Reservation is added, the system should allow you to choose your FastPasses 60 days out. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands. You can customize them with your name and choose a color by logging into your My Disney Experience account. If you do this 11 days or more ahead of your visit, they will be shipped to your home address. If not, they will be waiting for you at the front desk when you check-in. You can, of course, purchase MagicBands online or through the Shop Disney Parks smartphone app if you would like something different than the complimentary bands Disney provides.

    Please come back if there is anything else we can do to help you with your planning. Have a magical day!
