    We are planning our very first Disney World vacation. My husband has everything ready to book but we cannot find where we can add the magicbands to our reservation. Are these something that are automatically added if we book with a Disney World resort?

    Hello Jessica and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
    Hey there! Hi there! Ho there! You're as welcome as can be. A first Walt Disney World Resort vacation is certainly something to sing about. MagicBands have improved our vacation experience in ways I could have never imagined. We love them. The best news? Everyone staying at a Walt Disney World Resort receives a free MagicBand!

    Your first step will be to set-up a My Disney Experience Account. Once your vacation is booked, you will be able to link all of your vacation details to your My Disney Experience. It is also in this app that you can choose your MagicBand and personalize it with a name or phrase that will be printed on the inside. Each person's MagicBand will need to be linked to them and their tickets. Then, 60 days from your arrival you can make your FastPass+ selections and all of this will be connected to these amazing little bands. You can expect to receive a magical package containing all of your bands a couple weeks before your arrival.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have more questions, come on back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel- we love to help!

    See ya real soon!
