    I’m having trouble ordering a magic band. Is it too late with my son and I checking in on 7/11?

    Greetings, Teri.

    Welcome to planDisney! Close your eyes. Can you picture it? Tall spires that stretch towards the sky, the shimmer of EARidescent hues in honor of the 50th Anniversary Celebration, and a glimmer of gold here and there. Yes, I’m describing Cinderella Castle, but you won't have to close your eyes and imagine its beauty much longer since you will be at Walt Disney World Resort in less than a week! Hooray!

    Customized MagicBands must be ordered at least six days prior to your arrival. Unfortunately, since that ordering deadline has passed, you won’t be able to order customized MagicBands for this vacation. The good news is that MagicBands are sold at most merchandise locations throughout the theme parks and Disney Resort hotels, which means you can purchase MagicBands for you and your son when you arrive.

    Once you purchase your MagicBands, you will need to activate and assign them in your My Disney Experience mobile app. To do this, click the three horizontal lines in the bottom right corner and select "My Profile." Select "MagicBands & Cards" from the list of options on the screen, then choose the blue box that say "Link a MagicBand or Card." You can either manually enter the ID number on the screen or scan the ID number from the back of the MagicBand. Once you click “Submit,” you will be able to choose an individual from your Family & Friends list to assign the MagicBand to. It's really that simple!

    Teri, I hope you have a truly magical vacation. Enjoy making memories with your son.

    See ya real soon,
