    Hi Donyell, my husband and I are arriving March 10 with our 17 yo granddaughter. Both my husband and I have active Magic Bands from our Nov. 2019 trip, but we ordered our granddaughter a band for the March trip. Does MDE know my order is complete?

    Hi Stella!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is nice to see you again with another great question. How lovely to plan a trip with your granddaughter. I am always delighted to greet a fellow North Carolinian!

    Each time we stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, we receive complimentary MagicBands. As a guest coming from the U.S., unless you decline a MagicBand in My Disney Experience, you will receive one via mail or at your resort hotel. To complete your MagicBand order, you need to select or decline them - you might consider keeping the new MagicBands. I always take an extra MagicBand for everyone just in case we lose one. If, however, you do want to decline them, log into My Disney Experience, click on My Plans, then find your Resort Hotel confirmation and click on Start Check-in. Once you start Check-in, you should see an option to decline MagicBands. My fellow panelist Jason also provided a great answer to a similar question. You are not alone with the MagicBand dilemma!

    All of my MagicBands are active in My Disney Experience, so if I do lose one and need to use another, I can deactivate the lost one and just continue on with my vacation! If you have not done so already, make sure your other plans are linked in My Disney Experience. We always link our advanced dining reservations, FastPass+ selections and special tours. Make sure you have downloaded the My Disney Experience Mobile App so that you can track and modify your plans while in the parks.

    Stella, may I also suggest that you consider doing something special during the visit? My girls and I love going to Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa for Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room. It is our mother-daughter treat on every trip!

    Magic and Memories,
