    I bought WDW tickets from the Disney website and got cards since we're not staying at a Disney resort. I activated new Magic Bands online. My Disney Experience shows the cards and bands active. Are they connected so we can just use the bands?

    Hi Rachelle!

    It sounds like you are planning a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation and I'm happy to help you with your question! I'm glad you are planning on using MagicBands for your vacation because they will make your life so much easier during your trip. It's so convenient to have everyone's theme park ticket right on their wrist, rather than having to carry them in backpacks or wallets throughout the day.

    My Disney Experience provides much of the magic behind your MagicBands. Since you have linked your MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account and they are active, your MagicBands will have access to all of the entitlements in your My Disney Experience account. This includes your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and your Memory Maker entitlement.

    I recommend that you check the My Reservations & Tickets page of your My Disney Experience account to verify that your theme park tickets are displayed in the Tickets and Passes section. This ticket entitlement is what both your MagicBands and admission cards will be accessing when you use them. So as long as you see your tickets in this section, you are good to go and ready to touch your MagicBand at theme park entrances to access your ticket!

    If you have any issues with your MagicBand at all during your trip, simply head to Guest Relations or ask a Cast Member for help and they will get you all squared away. Also, be sure to download the My Disney Experience Mobile App as it's the easiest way to manage your account during your vacation!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
