    Hello! I just ordered magic bands but it didn’t ask me about connecting them to my trip. Will they automatically come with the box and our names on them and connected? Thank you!

    It's a bibbidi bobbidi beautiful day today at planDisney, Whitney!

    Welcome to planDisney! I'm glad you stopped by with your question for us. 

    You must be so excited to receive your new MagicBands! Whenever I get my new MagicBand in the mail, I wonder if this is how Cinderella might have felt when she could finally attend the ball! Because, as you know, with just a tap of your MagicBand with valid admission linked and a park pass reservation, you can enter the theme parks at The Most Magical Place on Earth! 

    Let's ensure your MagicBands are correctly linked, as we wouldn't want the clock to strike midnight on your plans! If you purchased your MagicBands through your Walt Disney World Resort reservation and customized and selected a MagicBand for each individual on the reservation, they will already be linked and assigned to everyone in your party. Therefore, you will not need to link the MagicBands.

    However, if you purchased your MagicBands without your resort reservation, you will still need to link them, and I'm happy to help! To do so, please follow these steps:

    -Open up your My Disney Experience Mobile App
    -Tap on the three horizontal lines located at the bottom right
    -Select MagicBands and More
    -If you select a profile, you can view your MagicBands to see if they're already linked
    -Select your profile and tap the + Link option to link your new MagicBand. 

    On top of this page, you'll see the option to Type ID, and when you select it, you'll be able to type in the ID number located on the back of your MagicBand puck into the Admission Media section. Once you've confirmed, you should be all set!

    If you purchased the new series of MagicBands, the MagicBand+, you're sure to love it! The new series offers the features we all love and then some! With new interactive elements, Guests can become part of the story. I love watching the MagicBand+ light up as I watch a fireworks spectacular! The MagicBand+ is rechargeable and waterproof and comes in various magical designs.

    We can't wait for you to visit the magic, Whitney! I hope you have a ball!
