    If I buy my Magic band after I made the park reservation, can I link it to the reservation?

    Hello Mariah!

    Welcome to planDisney with a great question! It is a pleasure to help you as you plan your upcoming Disney vacation.

    MagicBands are the best accessories - and most stylish - for any visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I simply cannot remember what it was like to visit without one! They can be used with valid admission to enter theme parks and water parks, to link digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass service to My Disney Experience, and when you stay in the middle of the magic they can be used to unlock the door of your Guest room, and even charge food and merchandise to your room during your stay. 

    I am happy to share that you can go ahead and purchase a MagicBand anytime! Your MagicBand will be linked to your Disney account and not to the Disney Park Pass reservations. If you have valid tickets linked to My Disney Experience and your reservations are all set, you can decide to use a MagicBand or a physical admission card, for example, to enter the parks. You can buy a MagicBand from the comfort of your home by visiting shopDisney.com, and if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can purchase one at pre-arrival prices by signing in to My Disney Experience and visiting My MagicBands and Cards. Remember to link your MagicBand to your Disney account after you receive it, and you will be ready to go! You are also welcome to visit merchandise locations at the Walt Disney World Resort upon arrival to buy a brand new MagicBand. I prefer to buy in advance, there is nothing more pixie-dusted than receiving MagicBands at home before starting a Disney adventure.

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney, Mariah. I hope this helps you while planning and that you have a magical visit!

    Best Disney wishes,
