    I ordered magic band+ for an upcoming cruise, but wanted to use them at the WDW parks before our cruise, however, when I click on the cruise app to manage the bands, it says I can link them when on the ship and it doesn’t give me other options.

    Hello, Melissa! Welcome to planDisney, your go-to community for all your Disney planning needs.

    How exciting that you get to experience the magic of Disney both on land and at sea! If you’ve ordered a DisneyBand+ from Disney Cruise Line, it arrives linked to your Disney profile, and you can take advantage of the band’s convenient features when you arrive at the terminal. 

    To confirm that your band is properly linked, head over to the Disney Cruise Line website under "Already Booked" and navigate to "DisneyBand+ & More." Check for the active bands on your account. If your band isn't listed, there’s no need to worry – look for the link at the bottom of the page to connect your band.

    If you have a MagicBand+ from Walt Disney World Resort, you can also check that it’s linked to your Disney Profile on the My Disney Experience app. Click on “MagicBands and More,” locate your name, and follow the prompts to pair your band or link your MagicBand+ to your account. 

    MagicBand+ or DisneyBand+, essentially the same fantastic tool, can be used at the theme parks and on the ship. Keep your band charged to dive into the magic the moment you arrive! Once onboard, you can access your stateroom and make hassle-free onboard purchases with the flip of your wrist. For security purposes, you’ll still need your Key to the World card and photo ID when you visit ports of call. 

    Make sure you have the Disney Cruise Line Navigator app and the My Disney Experience app downloaded to your phone. These handy tools are like magic wands, keeping everything organized and granting you easy access to your land and sea adventures. I hope this information was helpful and you're on your way to creating memories to last a lifetime.

    SEAS the adventure!

Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
