    How will we get our Plans onto our Magic Bands (which we already own)? Will it be at our hotel?? Will activities, such as Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party be on the Magic Bands? Thanks!!

    Hi, Annette!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What did we ever do without MagicBands?  They sure do add a level of convenience to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  You don't really have to put anything onto your MagicBand.  Instead, your MagicBand helps you to access the information from your My Disney Experience account.

    If you haven't already done so, you will want to link your theme park tickets and your tickets for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party to your My Disney Experience account.  This can be done by opening the "Tickets and Passes" section of your My Disney Experience mobile app.  Click on the plus sign at the top of the screen, then click "Link Tickets & Passes."  From there you can either scan or enter your ticket ID code.  Once your tickets are linked to your account, any active MagicBand that is linked to your My Disney Experience profile can be used to enter the Walt Disney World theme parks.  If you have any issues with linking your tickets or MagicBands, feel free to call the Help Center to speak with a Cast Member.

    It is worth noting that each guest can have several active MagicBands at one time.  You may use any MagicBand that you have linked to your My Disney Experience account interchangeably until the batteries run out.  Each active MagicBand that is associated with your account will be able to access your plans.  I like to bring several of my MagicBands with me on each visit to the Walt Disney World Resort and coordinate them with my outfit each day.

    When you attend Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party, be sure to catch the Once Upon a Christmastime Parade and the all-new Minnie's Wonderful Christmastime Fireworks.  These events are sure to add some magic to your holiday season!

    See ya real soon!
