    My husband and I received 2 limited edition NEW magic bands as gifts. How do I get them on my account so we can use them on our vacations next May 2019?

    Hello Sharon, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question.

    I am glad to see that you are already putting a few finishing touches on your upcoming spring vacation. I would be happy to help you link your awesome limited edition MagicBands to your My Disney Experience accounts.

    You will need to sign into your My Disney Experience account and click on the MagicBands and cards tab. You will scroll down, passed all the list of active and maybe inactive MagicBands on your account and click the link button. Select link MagicBand from the options. Enter the 12-digit ID number printed on the inside of the MagicBand and click next. Assign it to either you or your husband and then confirm. Once you link a purchased MagicBand to an account, it can never be unlinked, please choose carefully. Repeat the process for the other MagicBand. Congratulations, you new MagicBands are ready to go.

    You can still enjoy the used of other MagicBands linked to your My Disney Experience account too. Keep in mind that your MagicBands have a battery life of approximately 2 years. Also remember that when you visit us in the spring if you will be flying in and using Disney’s Magical Express, to pack your MagicBands in a carry-on bag. You will need them to unlock the door to your resort hotel room when you arrive.

    See ya real soon,
