    Hey will magic bands 2 off of loungefly work at Disney world Resort? And for tickets. Can I link them to our reservation?

    Hi Kristi, 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. It sounds like you are getting all your ducks in a row for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation with some special bling that would make even Daisy Duck proud!

    Now, I’m not exactly sure which MagicBand you have but the linking process is typically the same for all MagicBand and MagicBand+ (or as they are now sometimes called, DisneyBand+), so let’s get started.

    In the My Disney Experience app, find the feature (☰) menu in the lower right corner to select “MagicBands and More” (you may need to scroll down to find this), and then select “Link Your MagicBand or Card” (again, you may need to scroll down to find it). There are several methods you can use to link your band, either by using your phone camera, tapping the MagicBand to your phone, or manually typing in the MagicBand ID. Whichever way you choose, simply follow the on-screen instructions. 

    If you select to tap your MagicBand, here’s a tip! Sometimes you will need to try a couple of times. I recommend making sure that you are making contact with the upper back or the actual top end of your mobile device. If you have any technical difficulties, reach out to the My Disney Experience, MagicBand and MagicBand+ team and they will be happy to assist.

    Now that you have your MagicBand linked to your account, it will be available for your upcoming vacation in many ways! To enter the theme parks you must purchase theme park tickets and link them to your account. I always pack my MagicBand in my park bag so that I can use it even if my Disney Resort hotel room isn’t ready upon arrival. Just leave your luggage with Bell Services and head to your favorite park! Your My Disney Experience app will notify you when your room is ready and then you can unlock your door with your MagicBand.

    Kristi, did you know that you can use your MagicBand to purchase creative bites and sips at Food Studios at the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts? However, you won’t need your MagicBand to enjoy the spectacular DISNEY ON BROADWAY Concerts, but I know you will love them!

    I hope this information is helpful to you. Please stop by again and let us know if you have other questions; we love to help!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
