    Hi! If I buy my tickets from somewhere other than the Disney website, and then buy magic bands from shopDisney to use, how can I link them? In other words, how to I link my ticket to my magic band? Just a bit confused on how they work together! Thanks :)

    Hi Julianna and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for bringing us your question about linking your Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets to my favorite accessory, the MagicBand!

    The first step to is to create a My Disney Experience account. Once you have added all the basics like your name, address, etc., to your account, you can choose a favorite character for your profile. Mine is Princess Aurora! (Just go to “my account”, “my profile” and then you can choose your character.)  

    Your My Disney Experience account will hold all the necessary information about your magical vacation, including ticket information, dining reservations and FastPass+ selections. 

    Once you’ve created an account you can link your tickets and MagicBand to it. The easy to follow steps on this link will help you locate the numbers on your tickets and MagicBands and before you know it, everything will be linked! 

    Your MagicBand will be all you need to enter the theme parks and check-in to attractions when using FastPass+! Speaking of FastPass+, you can start making your selections 30 days before your vacation! It’s a service included with the price of your ticket that holds your place in line for your favorite attractions. You can make three selections at one theme park per day ahead of time!

    Julianna, when you download the My Disney Experience app to your smartphone, you will have all that information in the palm of your hand! You can also shop for merchandise, order quick service meals, and keep an eye on wait times for your favorite attractions. 

    I hope this information is helpful to you as you continue your planning! Don’t hesitate to come back to see us with any other questions!
