    hi I entered my tickets in My Disney Experience - do they automatically link with the magic bands? If not, how do i link them to the magic bands? Also, why does it say "magic band pending" in my magic band order

    Hey, Gina and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your magical vacation to the place "where dreams come true" is right around the corner. I know Mickey, Minnie, and the rest of the gang will be so excited to see you.

    MagicBands are "automagically" linked to theme park tickets through My Disney Experience. In fact, any MagicBand or Admission Card is connected and as long as it says "Active" you can use them. We have MagicBands that are a couple of years old that still work with our current annual pass. If you purchase additional MagicBands and want to link those its as easy as 1. Opening the package and locating the ID number in small print on the back of the MagicBand. 2. Log in to My Disney Experience or the My Disney Experience mobile app. 3. Choose the "hamburger" in the lower left on the mobile app and select "My Profile" then choose "MagicBands & Cards." 4. Finally, follow the instructions to "Link a MagicBand or Card." Online follow these steps to link a MagicBand.

    The "MagicBand Pending" is an indication that you have customized your complimentary Disney Resort hotel MagicBand and Disney is waiting for you to be "Done" so they may ship them to you about 30 days prior to your trip.

    Disney Dad Tip: With an active theme park ticket, you may make up to three FastPass+ selections prior to your arrival for each theme park day. Once you have used those you may schedule more on a one-by-one rolling basis. I suggest scheduling your next one while in line after you have used your last FastPass+ selection.

    Gina, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
