    hello. I ordered the colors to our magic bands today, but I can't link them to my Disney experience. It wants a 12 digit code for each one. I have a code for mine but not the kids.

    Hi Veronica!

    Can we just do a happy dance for MagicBands? My girls love picking out their MagicBand colors for our trips. It is almost as exciting as FastPass+ selection day!

    It sounds like you are trying to Link those MagicBands to your My Disney Account. For our last trip, we ordered premium MagicBands which were an option when I logged into My Disney Experience Account. Since I was logged into My Disney Experience Account, once I completed my order, the MagicBands were linked in My Disney Experience. When my MagicBands have not automatically linked in My Disney Experience, once I received the MagicBands in the mail, I found the 12-digit ID Number on the inside of the MagicBand, entered that 12-digit ID Number in My Disney Experience, and assigned the MagicBand to the appropriate person.

    Even if you do not receive those MagicBands in the mail prior to your FastPass+ selection day, just make sure each person in your party has tickets linked in My Disney Experience. As long as your tickets are linked, you should be good to make FastPass+ selections! If you have MagicBands from a prior trip, I also suggest packing an extra for everyone. When one of us loses a MagicBand, we use the extra one until the lost one is recovered. Just make sure each MagicBand is still active. I am happy to say that each time one of us has lost a MagicBand, it has been turned in and we were able to retrieve it from our resort hotel!

    Since your trip is approaching, I do hope you made advanced dining reservations. Our girls are older now, but they still enjoy a few character meals. And, if you have not taken a look at the Enchanting Extras Collection, I recommend it. We started doing at least one nature experience on each trip and so far, we have done Caring for Giants, Up Close with Rhinos, and Dine with an Animal Specialist. The girls and I also adore Afternoon Tea at Garden View Tea Room - gorgeous setting and impeccable service!

    Veronica, if you continue to have difficulty linking those MagicBands, feel free to call and speak with a Cast Member in Website Support at 407-939-4357. In the meantime, consider yourself pixie dusted as you prepare to make those FastPass+ selections! 

    Magic and Memories,
