    I am not staying on property but want to purchase MagicBands. If I buy them ahead of time can I sync them to My Disney Experience from home? Or do I have to have a Disney Cast Member do that?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Michelle!

    I love using MagicBands during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations. They make our lives so much easier by putting our theme park tickets and FastPass+ reservations right on our wrists! Once you purchase retail MagicBands, you can link your MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account through the MagicBands and Cards page of your account or in the My Disney Experience mobile app. I have done this several times when I purchased retail MagicBands with Disney Characters on them and it was very easy. You will simply need to enter the 12-digit ID number located on the back of each MagicBand and then select the member of your Friends & Family List to link it to.

    Since you are purchasing MagicBands, you may want to consider waiting until you get to Walt Disney World Resort to purchase Retail MagicBands on Demand. These MagicBands are totally custom and you can choose your color, Disney character or attraction and even add your name to it. I made myself a custom purple MagicBand on our last trip, and it is definitely my favorite MagicBand! You can get these at Launch Bay Cargo at Disney's Hollywood Studios and Tomorrowland Light & Power Co in Magic Kingdom.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
