    I have nice Magic Bands that we bought from a year ago. We have another trip planned in 6 weeks. I've been trying to link our magic bands to our upcoming trip using the mobile app but it keeps refusing the number from the back of the magic band.

    Hey there, Joyce, and welcome to planDisney! MagicBands are one of my favorite Disney topics, so it’s great to see that you are already well-versed in these wonderful vacation additions! I also love that your family appears to be annual “bubble” visitors! 

    Joyce, if you used your MagicBand on your previous Walt Disney World vacation, it should still be linked to your My Disney Experience account and automatically link to your upcoming reservation. So, the My Disney Experience mobile app may be refusing the number because it is already linked. You can see all of your linked MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account by hovering over the My Disney Experience tab on the Walt Disney World Website, and selecting “My MagicBands and Cards”. If your MagicBands show here, you’re all good to set out on your adventure across the Walt Disney World Resort!

    If you try the above steps and still find that you are having difficulty linking your MagicBands, you can get the Front Desk Cast Member to link them for you at the Disney Resorts Collection Hotel when you check in. I’ve done this once before on a trip, and it was quick and seamless!

    I hope this helps, Joyce! Your Walt Disney World vacation awaits!

    Until Next Time,
