    I’m planning trip with granddaughter. I can’t locate where to assign each band with a character? She has picked her band color. I’ve done in the past but for some reason I can’t locate. Help!!

    Hi Julie,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How wonderful that you are planning another Grand Adventure with your granddaughter. My children love going to Walt Disney World with their grandparents, and they've made so many special memories together.

    Great to hear that you've already logged in to your My Disney Experience account and taken care of customizing your MagicBands. Currently, the complimentary MagicBands that are included in your Walt Disney World Resort room reservation come in a variety of solid colors. You may also choose to add a name or nickname inside the band; just click on "My MagicBands and Cards" and follow the steps.

    Julie, you might be thinking about assigning a character to your granddaughter's My Disney Experience profile, which you can do by selecting "My Family & Friends List," selecting "Update" beside your granddaughter's name, and then "Change Character." She'll be able to choose from lots of options, and then every time you plan for her, you'll see that character's image. This character's image will be associated with her in My Disney Experience, but won't appear on her MagicBand unless you purchase a character-themed MagicBand for her to wear.

    If you'd like to purchase a character-themed MagicBand for your granddaughter, ShopDisney has some really cute designs available, or you may purchase MagicBands in the Walt Disney World gift shops. My daughter loves Pluto, and she received an adorable Pluto MagicBand as a gift. We had a really fun moment when Pluto noticed himself on her MagicBand and made such a big deal about it! It was one of those Disney magic moments.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
