    My Magic Bands & Memory Maker are linked to my DisneyExperience. We are visiting In January 2022. Will they be activated automatically or do I need to do something? Thanks!

    Welcome back to planDisney, June! It's great to see a returning guest planning another visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth.

    June, it sounds like you are a planner after my own heart, ready for January! I'm happy to report that if your MagicBands are showing up in your My Disney Experience account when you log in, they are fully activated and ready to wear (and use). Any MagicBands that appear in your account remain linked, so feel free to bring any others that you might have as well. Now that we are frequent visitors I tend to travel with 4 or 5 MagicBands and wear a different one each day.

    June, Hakuna Matata! Similar to the MagicBands, your Memory Maker photo download package purchase requires no activation and will be ready to use as soon as you hEAR that first click of the camera! Now all you need to do is practice smiling for the camera and be ready to pick your favorite images. June, if you're up for a little fun, don't miss the Magic Shots available through Disney PhotoPass photographers. Some of my favorites include favorite characters that only show up after the picture has been taken!

    Best wishes, June for a vacation full of Magical memories. I hope you'll come on back to planDisney with any other questions you might have.
