    I have a DVC AP with 2 vacations planned. We have AP Magic Bands; will they auto link to each reservation if I decline additional bands? Or are they tickets only? If I order bands for each reservation, do we need to link our AP card at the park each stay?

    Welcome Home Heather,

    Thanks for joining us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!

    Once you find a MagicBand that is really neat, or when you would say that your collection's complete, you can feel comfortable using the new feature on your My Disney Experience account to decline any additional MagicBands. Since these nifty tools are linked to all of your plans through MyMagic+, If all is connected correctly, then you should be able to use your Walt Disney World Annual Pass MagicBand exclusively for your upcoming vacation.

    When you explore the MagicBands and Cards section of your My Disney Experience Account, you can verify that your preferred MagicBand is appropriately linked by checking the number located underneath the Mickey section against the numbers on your screen.

    When you reach your Disney Vacation Club Resort, you will definitely want to have the friendly Cast Member at the front desk verify that your chosen MagicBand is programmed to unlock your Villa door. Occasionally, I have experienced a small hiccup with only the function, and it is normally resolved rather quickly at check-in.

    I hope that answers your question, Heather! Please let us know if you have any other questions. We are here to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
