    when you get your magic bands do you have to link them are do they come already link to your reservation

    Hi Dianne!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. It's a wondEARful surprise to receive your MagicBand in the mail because  it means your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is just around the river bend!

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you should have the option through My Disney Experience to order your complimentary MagicBand. If you order them through this avenue, when they arrive to you they should already be linked to your reservation and tickets. For this instance, there is no action required on your part other than to make sure you bring them with you! If you did not order them through your Resort Reservation in your account and instead purchased them directly through ShopDisney, then you will need to link them. To do so, log in to your My Disney Experience account, click on the logo in the top right hand corner and from the drop down select My MagicBands & Cards. If you scroll to the bottom of that page you'll see the option to link new ones. If you want to confirm yours are linked correctly, you can go to this same screen and you should see the registered MagicBands for each member of your party!

    I hope this helps in planning your upcoming visit. Please let us know if we can help in any other way!
