    My family and I have a vacation package booked for March 2018. I know we receive the Magic bands 30 days prior to our arrival. Do I need to link the Magic bands to my disney account or are they already linked for us? ( I have customized the bands).

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Christine. We're so glad you're here!

    It's always an exciting day when MagicBands appear in your mailbox. That means your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the corner. Oh, the anticipation!

    I have good news for you. When your MagicBands arrive at your home, you don't need to do anything to link them to your account. They are all ready to go when you receive them. You can use them to board Disney's Magical Express at Orlando International Airport, access your Disney Resort hotel room (if you have completed online registration), and charge purchases on Disney property (assuming you linked a valid credit card to your account). 

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World Resort in March. It is my favorite place to be in spring. Be sure to stop by the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. The blooms on display there are absolutely breathtaking.

    Wishing you many magical memories,
