    I am not staying at the Walt Disney World resort, but we have tickets to the parks. I wanted to get magic bands for my family. I manage their accounts on my disney app, and was wondering, how do I link the bands to their names/cards? Thanks in advance.

    Hi Courtney,

    I hope that you and your family are counting down the days to your vacation to the most magical place on earth! You're going to have a BLAST!

    MagicBands are super convenient and definitely help your trip to run smoothly! You'll be able to use them to enter the theme parks, check in for your FastPass+ attractions and experiences, and link your PhotoPass photos. As a mom of five, I love that I don't have to hang on to everyone's cards, and they each have everything they need right on their wrists. Once you've purchased your MagicBands either online or at a number of retail locations all around the Walt Disney World Resort, all you'll need to do is log in to your My Disney Experience account and enter the MagicBands' unique ID Numbers, which are located on the inside of the bands, to link them to the appropriate Mouseketeer in your account. If you have any trouble, feel free to call a Cast Member at (407) 939-4357 and they'll be happy to assist you.

    Did you know that MagicBands are reusable? Their batteries last for around two years, so be sure to hang on to them for any future visits that you'll be enjoying in the next couple of years!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Courtney, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. We're always happy to help! I hope that you and your family have a truly magical vacation!
