    We are 10 days and counting down. I have been playing with the Shop Disney Parks app. Will it link my magicband automatically once it is activated at the Resort? How do I choose ship home or to resort?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Judy!

    Wow! Your holiday visit to Walt Disney World is right around the corner; you must be so excited!

    Shop Disney Parks mobile app is one of my favorite apps right now as it streamlines shopping for all things Disney Parks, whether guests are in Walt Disney World or at home in their PJs. I am so glad that you've found it helpful, too!

    Think of the Shop Disney Parks mobile app as a connection to your Disney account. If you have set up your My Disney Experience account with a credit card, then when you make purchases on the Shop Disney Parks mobile app, it will charge to that same credit card. Should you wish to add a different card, you may do so, too.

    When you make a purchase, you'll have the option to ship it to your home (this will be your shipping option automatically if you do not have a resort reservation linked to your My Disney Experience account at that time). While staying in a Walt Disney World resort, if you'd like to have the purchase shipped to your resort, you may opt for that instead.

    Next, think of your MagicBand as a way to access your My Disney Experience account and all of your plans. Resort reservations, dining reservations, PhotoPass photos, FastPass+ plans, charging privileges (if you've added a credit card), park tickets and even unlocking your resort hotel room door are all accessed via your very magical MagicBand.

    Enjoy every moment as you vacation in Walt Disney World, Judy!

    Send more questions as you think of them, too; we love to help!
