    I ordered an received Magic bands for a trip to WDW starting June 1. I see them as "activated" in my Disney account. Do I need to do anything further to connect them to my tickets, hotel, dining, and park reservations?

    Greetings, Catherine!

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so very glad that you stopped by with your question. It sounds like your travel plans are off to an amazing start. You have everything from MagicBands to Disney Park Pass reservations set up. Consider me impressed! MagicBands are my favorite magical vacation accessory. I love the convenience of opening my Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotel room door and entering the theme parks without having to find a key card. 

    If the MagicBand (or MagicBands) that you ordered for your upcoming adventure are listed as active, they will be linked to your tickets, reservations, and accommodations. If there are multiple bands, be sure to check that each MagicBand is assigned to the correct Guest in your travel party. You can see which bands are assigned to each person in My Disney Experience on the Walt Disney World website. Choose the My MagicBands and Cards option on the drop-down menu to view your travel party and their bands. If you need to make any changes, you can do so by linking the correct MagicBand to each Guest online. The only additional step you may need to complete is stopping by the front desk of your resort hotel to assign a PIN to the band so you have the ability to charge purchases to your accommodations. If you already set a PIN up on your account, you're all set!

    Your trip is just two weeks away and I'm sure that everyone is getting excited! The big day will be here before you know it. Before arriving for your best trip ever, be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app. This wonderful planning tool will help you to continue to plan on the go throughout your visit to Walt Disney World Resort. You can create Mobile Food & Beverage Orders, make modifications to existing plans, and continue to plan your time in the parks with Disney Genie. Be sure that everyone in your group with a smart device downloads the app, and links their accounts ahead of your arrival. 

    I hope that your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
