    Can you give me instruction on show to set up Magic Bands for seven people and link each of them to our hotel without having to use a special package?

    Hi Wes!  Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with another great question.  It is my pleasure to assist you today.

    MagicBands are the niftiest Walt Disney World Resort vacation accessories!  They are such a convenient way to access your theme park admission, FastPass+ reservations, and link your Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account.  Guests who are staying at an official Disney Resort Hotel can also use their MagicBands to unlock the door to their hotel room and charge purchases to their room folio.

    Any Guest with a reservation at a Disney Resort Hotel will be able to select MagicBands in My Disney Experience for each person on the reservation.  Guests may choose from an assortment of complimentary solid-colored MagicBands or a selection of specially priced patterned bands.  Once selected, the MagicBands associated with your resort stay are automatically linked and there is nothing else you need to do.

    If you will not be staying at a Disney Resort Hotel and would like to purchase MagicBands for your vacation from a retail location at Walt Disney World Resort or online at shopDisney, there will be instructions in the packaging with your MagicBand on how to link it to your account.  Don't worry, it is super easy!  First, be sure you have set up a My Disney Experience account and created a profile for each member of your travel party.  (If members of your party have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you can invite them to connect with you in your Family & Friends list.  If you need help setting up or connecting accounts, please write back and we will be happy to help!)  Then, once you have your MagicBands in hand, you can link them to your account by entering the ID number printed on each band, and selecting which member of your party to assign it to.  You will do the same with your tickets.  That's it!  Everything linked to your profile in My Disney Experience works in conjunction with each other, so your tickets will work with your MagicBand.  If you will not be staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you will not be able to link your hotel reservation to your MagicBand.

    If you have any trouble linking your MagicBands or tickets to your account, feel free to stop by the Moms Panel again, or give the My Disney Experience helpline a call at (407) 939-4357.  And of course, we are always happy to help you with any additional vacation planning questions you might have.
