    We bought tickets through shades of green and linked them to our my Disney account. Will they automatically be linked to our magic bands or do we need to link them to our magic bands somehow or do we just have to use the cards they sent us for admission?

    Hi Diane, welcome to planDisney!

    A heartfelt thanks for the service that qualifies you for a Shades of Green ticket purchase. My heart swells with pride just thinking of the selfless men and women that make our country the home of the brave. My pride soars highest when the Voices of Liberty are performing at The American Adventure Pavilion in EPCOT. Check your My Disney Experience mobile app for showtimes. 

    Every once in a while a Guest comes along that is so magical they answer their own question. You are that kind of magic, Diane, and you've hit the Mickey-shaped nail on the head with your speculation about how MagicBands connect to the tickets in your My Disney Experience account. Once linked, MagicBands automagically connect to all tickets affiliated with a single My Disney Experience account or account profile. For example, my MagicBands connect to the two tickets linked to me in My Disney Experience but they do not link to my children's tickets, even though I manage their account profiles. My two-year-old MagicBand and my newer MagicBand+ are both listed as active in my account, which means I can use them interchangeably at park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, etc. The admission cards you received in the mail are another method of entry option at your disposal.

    Let me give you another reason why you're so magical, Diane. If the tickets you purchased at Shades of Green happen to be Disney Military Salute tickets, they are already activated, which means you do not have to stop by Guest Relations to show valid military identification before use. I recommend having your valid U.S. Military ID with you, just in case, which you could use at Guest Relations to purchase a specially-priced Memory Maker for Eligible Service Members. 

    In addition to valid admission and a method of entry (MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card), each Guest in your party must have a theme park reservation for each park day. Knowing you, Diane, I bet that was already on your radar.

    It's been a pleasure affirming you today, Diane. Let's chat again soon.

    With gratitude,
