    Hi Missy I see you are here! I just recieved my magic bands in the mail. How do I set it up for our family of 8 to use it at the park

    Hello, Karien!

    When our MagicBands arrive, I know our Walt Disney World Resort vacation is just around the river bend! Let the countdown to your magical adventure begin!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, then you have already customized your MagicBands, and they are linked to each member of your family. No need to do anything else, as the MagicBands are ready to go!

    If you purchased the MagicBands from the Shop Disney Parks mobile app or online Disney Store, then you will need to link each one to a family member. First, be sure that all Guests in your party are connected to your My Disney Experience account via the Friends and Family list. Next, under the MagicBands and Cards section, you will enter the 12-digit Band ID number located on the back of each MagicBand. You will then be prompted to select a family member from your Friends and Family list to be associated with that particular MagicBand. You will need to repeat this process for each one you purchased, and then they will be ready to use during your vacation!

    I hope this helps, Karien, and you make many unforgettable memories with your family during your upcoming vacation! Please let me know if I can answer any other questions you may have!

    Have a magical day!
