    Hi! We are a family of 12 heading to Disney in April for our vacation. I have already purchased tickets into the park. I was looking at getting magic bands to make it easier for the kids. How do I link them to my account?

    Hi Pamela!

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands for each Guest listed on the reservation.  You can customize the color and name of them in your My Disney Experience account and they will automatically be linked.

    If you are not staying on property and would like to purchase MagicBands, you can do so at  Walt Disney World park, Resort hotel gift shop or from the Disney Store online prior to your arrival.  Each MagicBand has a unique number on the inside and can be linked easily on your My Disney Experience account either online or on the mobile app under "MagicBands and Cards".  You will need to enter each MagicBand number per Guest in your account.

    Having MagicBands for the kids is a great idea, especially for the older kids if they split off and go on their own.  They won't need to carry a ticket card around and will have access to their FastPass+ attractions right on their wrist.

    Have a magical day!
