    We are planning to go to Disneyworld in the next week. I plan on purchasing magic bands for my family when we get to Hollywood Studios. Will a cast member be able link the magic bands to my account when I purchase them? I am dreadful at technology.

    Hi Patrice,

    Welcome back to planDisney! It's so great to visit with our pals!

    Friend, I completely understand. While technology really does improve our lives, sometimes, we just don't have the space to learn something new...especially on vacation. So I get the excitement to find that perfect MagicBand at Disney's Hollywood Studios, and also the desire to make sure that you can use it without too much time out of your day! 

    I am happy to share with you that Cast Members have always been more than gracious with their time to help set up a new MagicBand or MagicBand+ for me! They understand that we don't do this often and they want to get you off on your way, making amazing Disney memories with your family and friends. I'm confident they can have you set up and on your way within minutes. 

    Now, since knowledge is power, I want to reassure you that linking a MagicBand is actually pretty simple! In your My Disney Experience Mobile App, click the icon in the bottom right corner that looks like three horizontal lines. Then, scroll all the way down to MagicBands & Cards. Scroll down to Link Your MagicBand or Card. Then click Open Scanner to tap your MagicBand to the back of your phone to link! It's that easy! We can do this. I am just glad we don't have to when friendly Cast Members are happy to help. 

    Patrice, I'm so excited for you. Your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation is right around the corner. Get packing. Don't forget the sunscreen and a super-totable water bottle. It's getting warm down here already.  

    I hope you have the most magical vacation! Please know that planDisney is here to help if you have any other questions along the way. 

    Adventure is out there,
