    Hello, I'm planning a trip to Disney World later this year, right after Thanksgiving actually. I have unused park days left over from a 10 day/ no expiration card. My question is can I transfer those to a magic band of i buy the band? Thank you,

    Hi Laurence,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am glad to hear you are considering buying a MagicBand. You will find that they are very convenient, easy to use, and look great!

    If you purchase a MagicBand online or even at a retail location, make sure you link it to your Disney account before or after arriving at the Walt Disney World Resort. You will have to create or sign in to your Disney account and then link your MagicBand. Once your MagicBand is linked, activate it so you can use it instead of your card. 

    Don’t forget that a valid theme park admission must also be linked to your Disney account, and then you will be able to use your MagicBand with FastPass+ service, enter theme and water parks, use Disney PhotoPass service, and unlock endless magic. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will have extra benefits like unlocking the door of your room, and charging food and merchandise purchases to your room during your stay.

    It was a pleasure answering your question Laurence. Please come back to visit us real soon.

    Best magical wishes,
