    I have a magic band that I'd like to use on an upcoming visit. I have a new ticket and linked it my account. Now I'd like to get that ticket onto my magic band, or perhaps it happens automatically? on the acct it says the magic band is active.

    Hey there, Donna! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question!

    In just a few days, you'll be arriving at The Most Magical Place on Earth, ready to begin your magical adventure! Eeeeek! How exciting! To me, there is nothing more thrilling than arrival day on a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Arriving at my Disney Resorts Collection hotel, getting that first magical scent of my Resort hotel's lobby, scoping out the snacks in the area, anticipating the fun on the horizon, and strapping that MagicBand onto my wrist as my key to the magic is one of my favorite parts of the whole trip. As someone who changes my MagicBand depending on the theme park and the outfit, I'm honored to answer this question for you!

    If the MagicBand you wish to use on your upcoming vacation is listed as "Active" under your name in the "Manage MagicBands or Cards" section of your My Disney Experience account and your tickets are linked to you on that account, you are good to go! That MagicBand will work as your park admission and to redeem any Genie+ selections or Individual Lightning Lane purchases that you may make. Let the magic begin!

    Donna, did you know that you can also access and redeem your park admission via the Disney MagicMobile section of your My Disney Experience app?! If your tickets are linked, just click the Disney MagicMobile tab on the app to set up your pass and even add it to your digital wallet. That way, if you ever forget your favorite MagicBand in your room, you will still have quick and easy access to your theme park admission with just a swipe of your mobile device! What they can't do these days!

    One last tip! Donna, the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts is running through February 21, 2022, so don't miss it! With food as beautiful as it is delicious, interactive artwork and endless entertainment, this is my favorite EPCOT Festival. Don't miss the Vibrante & Vivido: Encanto Cocina kiosk! Every single food and drink item is delicioso!

    Donna, I am wishing you THE most magical upcoming vacation! Stop by any time with any of your vacation planning questions.

    I hope to see ya real soon,
