    Hello! I am going on my first trip to Disney World in March 2018 and I recently purchased Disney character MagicBands and wanted to know how to link a custom MagicBand to my trip? Or is it even possible?

    Hi, Courtney!

    Congratulations on your first vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort! March is a wonderful time to visit because of the pleasant temperatures, and the 2018 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival will be in full bloom! This is one of my favorite events at Epcot because I love being surrounded by the colorful landscapes of flowers that fill the park and the enchanted Character topiaries. These incredible works of art always amaze me! I hope you are planning to spend at least one day exploring the scenery, snacking on the delicious food and beverage offerings, watching a demonstration and taking in some of the live music. 

    I'm glad you sent in this question about your Disney Character MagicBand that you recently purchased. You can absolutely connect it to your ticket for your upcoming trip by logging in to your "My Disney Experience" account. Once there, you'll want to click on "MagicBands and Cards" and scroll down until you can select the "Link" button then click "MagicBand." The following screen will ask you to input your MagicBand's ID number (with no dashes), which can be found on the inside of your band under the Mickey head. Continue to follow the prompts, as it will ask you to match the newly linked MagicBand to the correct Guest. You'll want to match your name and then finalize your selection. 

    Courtney, if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will receive a MagicBand with your package. This band will also be linked to your ticket so you can use both bands during your vacation. My daughter has several special MagicBands and enjoys matching them to her outfits each day!
