    Welcome to planDisney, Tammy!

    How exciting that you're kicking off the New Year with a trip to The Most Magical Place on Earth. Talk about starting 2024 with a bang!

    My family just returned from Walt Disney World and we were each able to try out the new MagicBand+. It's such a convenient way of scanning into the parks and Lightning Lanes. It's also super convenient when you want a picture from a Disney PhotoPass photographer or if you want to enter your hotel room. It's so much quicker than having to locate your phone, open up the app, wait for it to load, etc. MagicBand+ is especially great for kids. My kids really enjoyed the haptic vibrations and colorful lights during the nighttime spectaculars. I kept having to tell them, "Stop looking at your MagicBand+ and look at the fireworks!"

    Tammy, you can feel free to link your MagicBand+ whenever is convenient. I linked ours a few days before our trip. However, there's nothing stopping you from doing it now if you prefer. Once you link it, you should be good to go.

    I hope that's helpful, Tammy. It's been a pleasure to serve you. Have a great trip! If you have any more questions then you know where to find us.

    See ya real soon!
