    Do the magic bands for my family all come activated ( ready to use once I get to Disney) or do I have to do something to them?

    Hello, Barbara and welcome to planDisney where my fellow panelists and I love to BAND together to help guests create MAGICal vacations! 

    Now, Barbara, with the 50th anniversary celebrations kicking off on October 1st, you are in for an exciting vacation that will have you smiling from ear to EAR. Using a MagicBand on your trip will make getting into the theme parks, purchasing your favorite souvenirs and heading back to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel at the end of the night effortless! 

    Barbara, I'm happy to report that when your MagicBands arrive at your home they are ready for use without any extra steps. If you want to double check that your MagicBand is active in your account you can easily do so by logging into My Disney Experience. After you've logged in you'll hover over the bold "My Disney Experience" until you see "My MagicBands and Cards." When you click on that you'll be taken to a page that lists your active MagicBands. 

    I hope this helps as you are planning ahead for your visit. If you have any additional questions please come on back to planDisney. Like Dumbo The Flying Elephant, we are all EARS

Greetings from central Pennsylvania! Hi, I’m Lauren and I can’t wait to answer all of your Walt Disney World Resort and Disney Vacation Club questions. My husband and I became Disney Vacation Club Members because we love visiting the Disney Parks and with hectic day-to-day schedules, wanted to prioritize time away for our family. The options at the Walt Disney World Resort make each trip unique and I am excited to help other families build vacations with those unforgettable moments.
