    I'm wondering how your finger print gets "associated" with your magic band. First time going to WDW with magic bands. Is there a machine at the Disney resort that does it?

    Hello, dear Susan! 

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We missed you! 

    I love that you brought us a techie question this time! I was fascinated by this process the first time I experienced it. It's super exciting! 

    The process will happen at the entrance of the Theme Parks, where you will tap your MagicBand at a very cute tapstile that has a fingerprint reader associated with it. You will then use the same finger to enter all the Theme Parks in the future. It's swift, simple, and efficient. I dare say it's almost magical

    One of the coolest parts, for me, is seeing the totem light up green as it registers my fingerprint. If you're a Disney Vacation Club member, like me, it will light up in purple sometimes. It's super cute! 

    I hope that you have a wonderful time rocking your MagicBands at the Walt Disney World Resort this February, Susan! If you have more questions, please, let us know. We're here to help!

    May the magic be with you,
