    We are going to order our Magic Bands in the next couple of days. What will we have to do to link them to our Disney reservation account?

    Howdy, Mike!

    Welcome to planDisney, and thanks for stopping by. With roughly a month to go until your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I bet you are counting down the days. Personally, I think you are visiting at the perfect time, because you'll get to experience the fun of the 50th Anniversary Celebration AND the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts. I can't wait for you to experience both!

    MagicBands are one of my favorite park accessories to bring on my Walt Disney World Resort vacations. I have a box full of them from past trips that I carefully peruse when packing for my next one. I always try to match my MagicBands to my outfits to express my Disney style and show off my favorite Disney characters. I'm excited you plan on ordering MagicBands for your upcoming adventure!

    MagicBands have a multitude of uses that make vacationing at Walt Disney World Resort a breeze! You can use them to link your PhotoPass photos, unlock your door at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel, make charges to your Resort hotel room for things like souvenirs and dining, access Lightning Lane entrances and more. They're truly a convenient, all-in-one tool that I wouldn't go to Walt Disney World Resort without.

    Linking your MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account is super easy to do. From a browser, hover over My Disney Experience and click where it says "My MagicBands and Cards." Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the blue rectangle that says "link." Select MagicBand from the available options and input the ID Number into the prompt. The ID Number can be found on the back of the center puck (the back of the Mickey) on your MagicBand. Click next, and choose the name of the individual you want to assign the MagicBand to from the list of names on the screen. Click next again, then verify that the person showing is who the MagicBand belongs to. If it's correct, select Finalize Selection. Your MagicBand should now be linked.

    If you are linking the MagicBand from your My Disney Experience App, click the menu, then My Profile. Select MagicBands & Cards from the available options, then click Link a MagicBand or Card. Follow the same steps as you would from a browser until you reach the page to finalize your selection. That's it! If you have any trouble getting your MagicBands to link properly, reach out to the My Disney Experience and MagicBand Cast Member team at 407-939-4357, and they can assist you further.

    MagicBands will be receiving an upgrade sometime in 2022 to MagicBand+, an exciting new tool that will have all the same conveniences of the MagicBand but with new additions. MagicBand+ will even light up and interact with the nighttime spectaculars on property. Can you imagine how cool it will be for your MagicBand+ to possibly dance to the beats in Harmonious?

    I hope you love your MagicBands as much as my family loves ours. They will be a handy-dandy tool on your vacation, but they'll also be a memento of your memorable vacation together. Enjoy every magical moment of your trip!

    See ya real soon,
