    We had magic bands sent to our homes via our travel agent. Is it automatically activated or is this a separate process. Also, if it is a separate process how many days b/4 we get to Disney can we activate them?

    Hi Jennifer!

    It's so exciting to see you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort today!

    This is a great question! To find out if your MagicBands are linked to your account, sign in to your My Disney Experience account and select "My MagicBands and Cards." If they are linked to your account, you will be able to see each of them linked to each Guest in your traveling party.

    If they are not yet linked, it's easy to do. Scroll down to "Manage MagicBands or Cards" and then scroll down to "Link a MagicBand." Click on "Link" and then click on "MagicBand." From there you will enter each MagicBand ID Number and complete the process.

    Oh my goodness. I'm so excited for you! Now, more than ever is such a magical time to be at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Enjoy every magical moment!
