    How do I link my purchased wristband to my account?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, David. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to hear you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next week! There's no place I'd rather be, that's for sure. 

     I just love the convenience of MagicBands. I can use a MagicBand to open the door of my Disney Resort hotel room, charge purchases to my room folio, enter the theme parks, link Disney PhotoPass photos, and more! How cool is that?

     If you purchased a pre-order MagicBand through My Disney Experience, it should already be linked to your account. To view your active bands, hover over the My Disney Experience tab on the Walt Disney World Resort homepage and select "My MagicBands and Cards" from the drop-down menu that appears. There you should see any active MagicBands associated with your account, including your most recent pre-order which should have automatically linked. 

     If you purchased a MagicBand from a retail location or online at, linking your band to your account is super easy! Scroll to the bottom of your MagicBands page on My Disney Experience. Click on the blue "Link" button. Click on the MagicBand icon and then enter your band's ID number. You'll find that 12-digit ID number on the band's interior, just underneath Mickey.

     Will you be flying into Orlando International Airport and utilizing Disney's Magical Express as a Disney Resorts Collection Guest? Be sure to have your MagicBand on hand when you land. A quick tap of your MagicBand is the easiest way to check-in at Disney's Magical Express!

     I hope this was helpful, David. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
