    I need to link my kids to our upcoming trip on December and see if our magic bands will still work

    Hi Meredith,

    Welcome to planDisney!

    I am excited to see that you are planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! If your kids have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you can send them an invitation to connect via the My Family Friends List in My Disney Experience. To do so, log into My Disney Experience, click on My Family & Friends, and then click on Add a Guest. Once you enter that Guest's name and age, you should be able to send them an invitation to connect. Just be sure to send the invitation to the email address they have affiliated with their My Disney Experience account.

    Once everyone is linked, if they had MagicBands assigned to them in My Disney Experience, you should be able to see those. In My Disney Experience, you will be able to see if those MagicBands are Active or not. They do not have unlimited battery life, however. Generally, we suggest that they may not work after two years. If you know yours are more than two years old, I suggest that you go ahead and order new MagicBands.

    Meredith, looking at your arrival date, I do hope you have booked Disney Park Pass system and advanced dining reservations. You are visiting at an incredibly busy time of year! We absolutely love going for The Holidays at Walt Disney World Resort and we make it manageable by booking advanced dining reservations as well as special experiences from the Enchanted Extras Collection. So, once you make sure everyone is connected through the My Family & Friends list in My Disney Experience, keep planning! We are so excited to welcome you for an Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
