    Hello! We ordered magic bands (magic bands plus actually) for our upcoming trip in May. Are these automatically linked to our reservations or do I need to do that somehow? Thank you for your help!

    Welcome to planDisney Paola! 

    One of my favorite things after booking my reservation for my Walt Disney World vacation is picking out which MagicBand or MagicBand+ to wear! I love that when you stay at a Walt Disney World Resort the MagicBands are offered at a discounted price! If you purchased it as a pre-order with your reservation you will find that the MagicBand+ will come already linked and ready to go just as it would if it was a regular MagicBand. The MagicBand+ will be linked to your My Disney Experience account profile and your reservation information will all be there. You just need to make sure to charge it and pair it to your My Disney Experience Mobile App on your mobile phone.

    If you purchased the MagicBand+ separately from or another merchandise location then you will have to manually link it to your My Disney Experience account. If you have any trouble with your MagicBand+ you can speak to someone from the My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagicBand+ team. 

    It will be such a magical moment when your MagicBand+ arrives in the mail! It's a sign that your vacation is fast approaching. May is one of my favorite times to visit Walt Disney World Resort. You will love strolling through the botanical masterpieces at the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival and eating something delicious at one of the Outdoor Kitchens. Make sure to bring your MagicBand+ to nighttime spectaculars such as my favorite Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios! You will find it lights up and makes it a much more special interactive experience. Oh boy, I'm so excited for you!

    I hope this helps! Feel free to let me know if you have any more questions.
