    We are not staying at a Disney Resort hotel. I have tickets and have made Fast Pass reservations. I ordered 3 magic bands for the kids in our party. How do I link the bands to the account? Does that information come with the bands?

    Hi, Kay! Thanks for stopping by with your question. My daughters love having their own MagicBand to scan as they enter the parks and FastPass+ queues. Sure, you can always scan your ticket card to accomplish these tasks, but the kids just find it so much more fun to use those enchanted little bands!

    Activating your new MagicBands and linking them to your My Disney Experience account is as easy as saying, "supercalifragilisticexpialidocious." Wait, I promise it's actually much easier than that. You will want to make sure all Guests in your party, even the little princes and princesses, are set up in your Family & Friends list in My Disney Experience. When you receive the MagicBands you ordered, take a look at the back of each band. You will notice a 12-digit Band ID number that will need to be logged into My Disney Experience and linked to a specific Guest in your Family & Friends list. If you have also linked your theme park tickets to each of the Guests that you just used to link the MagicBands, then you should have no problems being automagically scanned into the parks with a flick of your MagicBand adorned wrist.

    I hope this helps you get all set up for a magical vacation, Kay. Please let me know if you have any further questions as you continue to plan your stay.
