    We bought new magicbands for our upcoming trip. I cannot figure out how to change this on the MyDisneyExperience part of the website. How do I get the new bands active?

    Hi Linda!

    MagicBands are not only incredibly convenient accessories to have during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, but they are also fantastic fashion accessories!  I have started buying different colors and prints so that I can have MagicBands to match all of my outfits!

    The process to link a MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account online is simple once you know where to go, and there are a couple of ways that you can do it!  Once you log into your My Disney Experience account, hover over the "My Disney Experience" logo in the upper right-hand corner of the page.  You can click on "My Plans," scroll down to where it says "My Plans, Reservations and Tickets," and then click on "+ Add More Plans."  Click on "Link Reservations and Purchases," then select "MagicBand" and follow the instructions.  You can also hover over the "My Disney Experience" logo and click on "My MagicBands and Cards."  Scroll all the way down to the bottom of the page, click on "Link," select "MagicBand," and follow the instructions.  Either way, you will just need the ID Number on the back of your new MagicBand to link it to your My Disney Experience account!

    You can have multiple MagicBands attached to your My Disney Experience account at one time that can be used interchangeably, and you can view all of them (and their statuses) on the "My MagicBands and Cards" page.  You can even select each MagicBand to set its status to either "Active" or "Inactive" just by clicking on it!  Once you have linked your new MagicBand, it should show on this page.

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
