    Hallo, we are checking the Magic Bands. But the Magic Band which we want is only available in Disney Shop. Question is now: when we buy it online and not via the offered ones, does this work and how do we get it linked to our reservation? At the hotel?

    Welcome to the Disney Moms Panel, Christine!

    Congrats on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation in April! It’ll be here before you know it.

    During my last visit to Walt Disney World I took notice to just how many different MagicBand styles there are. In fact, one of my good friends has a MagicBand that matches the inside lining of his jacket! Thank you shopDisney.com for keeping us stylin’! 

    Here’s the good news, no matter what MagicBand you select, as long as you link it to your My Disney Experience account and it’s set to “Active”, each of your MagicBands will be linked to your current reservations… and speaking of, I would highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience Mobile App as it’s be a great way to keep up with all of your reservations on the go.

    So go ahead and pick out a complementary MagicBand under your reservation and then treat yourself to the one that you really want on shopDisney.com.

    If you have any other questions, please let us know. Have a magical day!
