    I'm going to a convention and had to make my room reservation through them - how can I get magic band and will I be able to link to the magic band?

    Hi Candy,

    A Disney Meeting at Walt Disney World Resort. No better place than to work and play.

    I had the opportunity on several occasions to attend as a ConventionEAR, and always had an excellent time. I always made myself some room to visit one of the Theme Parks in the evening and I think that gave me an energy boost for the next day.

    Depending on how your booking is done, sometimes the reservations are made directly with Disney, but at other times, it's possible that the reservation information will not get transferred to the Disney Resort hotel until 30-60 days before your arrival. Once that's done, you should receive an email with the reservation details, including a reservation number, typically a 14 digit one. This is the number that you will need to add to your My Disney Experience account and link your reservation. Then, you'll be able to customize your MagicBand and have it shipped to you ahead of time.

    Typically, you will have the opportunity to purchase Theme Park tickets in advance, and this is important, since you can also link them to your My Disney Experience account. Then, you'll be able select FastPass+ reservations for up to three favorite attractions, up to 60 days before your arrival. Oh, and remember that if you are flying into Orlando International Airport, because you stay at a Disney Resort hotel, you can take advantage of the complimentary transfer Disney's Magical Express.

    So, let's get busy working then!
