    We are 12 days away from our Disneyland vacation!! I was trying to set up our magic bands with our linked reservations. However, I keep getting an error message. Am I unable to set up the watches until a few days before our reservation?

    Hey there Anna,

    Welcome to planDisney, thank you for your question, and let me add to the excitement of your trip countdown by reminding you that you're now EVEN CLOSER to your upcoming trip to the Happiest Place on Earth!

    The first thing I wanted to confirm with you is that you are attempting to pair MagicBand+ devices? The older MagicBands will not work at the Disneyland Resort, nor will they pair with the Disneyland Resort mobile app.

    If you are trying to connect MagicBand+ devices, then I would also confirm that the My Disney Experience app (for Walt Disney World Resort) is closed on your phone if you have it, as that can sometimes interfere with the Disneyland Resort mobile app when trying to pair your MagicBand+.

    If neither of the above options fix the problem, then I would recommend checking out the MagicBand+ pairing tutorial to make sure all the steps are being performed correctly.

    If you're still having trouble at this point then it would be time to call a Cast Member at the Guest Information line. They might be able to better help you troubleshoot the issue based on the error you're receiving to find a fix! However, I can confirm that there are no limitations to when you can set up your MagicBand+ on the Disneyland Resort mobile app - you should definitely be able to set it up at any point while planning your trip.

    Thanks again for your question, Anna! I hope you have the best time during your upcoming vacation to the Disneyland Resort!

    Have a Magical Day,
