    We have magic bands that are active (according to the website). Are they automatically linked to our newest tickets that we purchased?

    It’s always a delight when you stop by planDisney, Shannon!

    Thanks for bringing your question our way. 

    Although there are gadgets aplenty, I think if Ariel ever had a MagicBand in her trove of whosits and whatsits, her collection would be complete!

    There is something extraordinary about donning a MagicBand as your magical vacation begins. Not only do I love choosing my favorite themed MagicBands to complete my outfits for the parks, but I also love how seamlessly convenient they make my stay. With a simple tap, I can unlock my Disney Resorts Collection hotel room door, and with a valid admission, I can enter the theme parks! I also love having the option of adding charging privileges to charge back to my room! 

    Shannon, I’m happy to tell you that everything you have linked to your My Disney Experience account is automatically linked to your MagicBands, as long as your MagicBands are active in your account. So when you add something to your plans like new tickets, they load to your MagicBand.

    To check if your MagicBand is still active, log into your My Disney Experience account and hover over the My Disney Experience logo on the top right corner. Next, please click on “My MagicBands and Cards” and scroll down until you see “Manage MagicBands or Cards.” After clicking on your name, it will show you all the MagicBands you have active on your account. You may have several; I just checked mine and saw 14. You can also choose to deactivate some of them here if you’d like. 

    Have you checked out the Disney MagicMobile Service? It is available on the My Disney Experience app and is a convenient and contactless way to gain theme park entry through your phone! I like having both my MagicBand and Disney MagicMobile as an option just in case I end up forgetting one or the other. By doing this, I always have a way of getting into the parks!

    Speaking of getting into the parks, do be sure to make your Disney Park Pass reservations, as they are required, along with your theme park tickets to enter the parks!

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Shannon. Have an enchanting time!
