    Do magic bands purchased through resort reservation pre-arrival come linked to the specific account?

    Hi Shon! Welcome to planDisney! MagicBands are the perfect way to accessorize your Walt Disney World Resort vacation while also adding convenience to your visit! I like the variety of bands offered through the pre-arrival exclusive options! That is usually where I select my bands. I have also found bands on!

    At times, I have had pre-arrival exclusive MagicBands arrive already linked to my account. There have been other times where I’ve had to do the linking myself. Linking the bands yourself is fairly easy and doesn’t take much time. I’ll walk you through it below.

    When you open the My Disney Experience app, scroll down to the heading that states, “Account.” Then tap the “MagicBands & Cards” heading. Then tap “Link Your MagicBand or Card.” You’ll be  able to link your MagicBands to your account by tapping/scanning your band to your mobile device or by typing the ID number from the band into your account. Linking your band to your account and connecting your MagicBand with your mobile device takes just a few minutes. As long as you follow the on-screen prompts, you should have your MagicBand linked fairly quickly!

    Shon, that awesome MagicBand can be used to make purchases in the Disney Parks and resort hotels, act as the key to your resort room, serve as your theme park admission, capture Disney PhotoPass images, and so much more!

    Good luck selecting the “just right” MagicBand for your upcoming visit!

    Dreams do come true!
