    How can you get your magic bands active for my next trip 4/27/22?

    Hiya there, Christine! I'm so glad you found us here at planDisney!

    April will be here before you know it, so the magical countdown is on for your trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Your vacation also falls during the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration, an unprecedented celebratory occasion spanning all four theme parks! You can see the beautiful enhancements made to Cinderella Castle while you find a special viewing spot for Disney Enchantment, a breathtaking new nighttime spectacular for all ages!

    If you have MagicBands from a previous stay, they are already active and ready to be used again for your upcoming trip! Ka-Chow! There is nothing special or additional you need to do to activate your bands as long as you still use the same My Disney Experience account. Of all the gadgets and gizmos at Walt Disney World, MagicBands are my favorite of all! For one little tool to unlock your Disney Resort Hotel room door, provide a payment method at many locations throughout the resort and function as your ticket and Genie+ pass is so very convenient.

    If anyone in your party needs a new MagicBand, you can purchase them at a discounted pre-arrival price through your resort hotel reservation using the My Disney Experience Mobile App or browse the selection at shopDisney. I find that the slap bracelet MagicBands, like this Minnie Mouse one, are especially helpful for smaller Guests!

    Christine, I do hope I've helped answer your question today! Have a magical stay!
