    I am currently trying to update my magic band plus for our trip starting this Sunday. I found the post that shows it's an paperwork but that was from a year ago. I just want to confirm that it's still and app error.

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Jaime. I'm so glad you stopped by! If I'm counting the days correctly, you've already arrived at the Walt Disney World Resort. And if I'm not, you only have a few days to go before your arrival. Either way - yay!

     I love my MagicBand+. Not only is this accessory super cute, but it's also super functional! I can use it to open my Disney Resort hotel room door, charge food and merchandise purchases to my room folio, tap into the turnstiles at the theme parks, and link my Disney PhotoPass photos to my My Disney Experience account. Not to mention, it syncs with nighttime spectaculars, making the shows practically come to life! 

     I'm sorry to hear you're experiencing difficulty getting your MagicBand+ updated. Without knowing the exact details of the problem, I can't be exactly sure how to resolve it. But not to fret! Take a bit of time to check out the MagicBand+ Support page on the Walt Disney World Resort website. There are troubleshooting tips there that will hopefully have your MagicBand+ updated in no time. Should you still experience difficulty with your band, call the MagicBand+ line. A friendly Cast Member there will be happy to assist you! If you're already at the Walt Disney World Resort, find a member of the Guest Experience Team for help. You'll be able to spot them by their blue shirts and big smiles!

     In the meantime, you may want to check out Disney MagicMobile. A Disney MagicMobile Pass acts much like a MagicBand and is conveniently saved to your digital wallet on your smartphone!

     I hope this was helpful, Jaime. I'm wishing you a magical stay at the Walt Disney World Resort!
