    I have booked a room at the Rivera and I received the magicband that's linked to that hotel. I then decided I wanted to stay longer so I booked a room at the Animal Kingdom. How do I link that same magicband to the new booked room at Animal Kingdom

    Hello Mirna!

    Welcome to planDisney! It sounds as if you have an amazing trip planned at the Walt Disney World Resort and have chosen two fantastic resorts for your stay. You’ll be happy to know that you don’t have to do anything, MagicBands are magical in more ways than one, and you should already be set to go!

    MagicBands are your all-in-one, easy way to access your room key, theme park tickets, and room charging from the convenience of your wrist. They are not linked to a specific trip or resort, but they are actually linked to the Guest in My Disney Experience. If that Guest then moves resorts or even comes back for a new trip in the future, the MagicBand is still linked to that same Guest account, and as long as the battery is still working the MagicBand still magically works! So head on over to Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge & Villas and your MagicBand just goes with you, no need to do anything.

    Staying at two resorts means even more amazing dining options during your trip, Mirna. You can make Advance Dining Reservations 60 days before check-in for each of your resort stays. At Disney’s Riviera Resort, check out Topolino’s Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera. Did you know that in Italy, Mickey is known as…. Topolino! Join Mickey, and some friends, on his terrace for a character breakfast, or take in sweeping sunset views during dinner at this popular new location. Over at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Kidani Village, enjoy observing the animals while you dine at Sanaa. They are known for their bread service appetizer where you are treated to a variety of chutneys, dips, and sauces to enjoy with your flatbread. This is a favorite for a reason, so yummy! You may want to try one or both of these delicious choices during your stay!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation, Mirna. Let us know if you have any additional questions before your trip, we are here to help!

    Have a Magical Day!
