    ok I'm having trouble understanding the magic band idea. how do i purchase them and link them to my party?

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Cheryle. It's my pleasure to answer your question!

     I just love adding to my collection of MagicBands with every Walt Disney World Resort visit my family enjoys together. Not only do they add a ton of convenience to our vacations, they also make fabulous souvenirs! MagicBands are complimentary to Guests with hotel reservations. It's just one of the many benefits of staying at a Disney Resort hotel! If you're not staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll receive a card when you purchase valid theme park admission. The cards work much the same as MagicBands in that they are used to scan for entry at the theme parks and at FastPass+ touch points. For ease of travel, MagicBands are available to purchase! You'll find them at many retail locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort and online at shopDisney. Once you've purchased a MagicBand, linking it to your My Disney Experience account is easy. Simply log in to your account and select "My MagicBands and Cards" from the My Disney Experience drop-down menu in the top right corner of the Walt Disney World Resort homepage. Scroll down and select "Link" to enter your MagicBand ID number and link it to your account.  

     Cheryle, your January visit is the perfect time to enjoy magical and limited-time experiences coming to the Walt Disney World Resort in the new year. Please let me know if you have any other questions!
