    If I preorder magic bands shipped to my house, can I link them to my tickets and MyDisney prior to arriving and then use them to enter the parks, or will I have to go to guest services or something to set them up initally?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Nathalie! I'm excited to see that you're planning a return trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Nathalie, I love how easy the MagicBands make a Disney vacation and am happy to chat with you about making sure you're connected and ready for fun. If you have booked a vacation package including a Disney Resorts Collection hotel stay and have pre-ordered MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account, they are ready to be used out of the package with no extra steps necessary. Isn't that fantastic?

    Now, if you have ordered a MagicBand through Shop Disney, you will want to connect those in advance by logging into your My Disney Experience account and hover over the bold "My Disney Experience" until you can see and click on "My MagicBands and Cards." From there you'll see an option in blue to "Link." There is a number on the inside of the MagicBand that you'll input on the next screen. Once your number has been accepted, you're ready to use that new MagicBand.

    Nathalie, I hope this information helps as you're preparing for your trip. Please come on back to planDisney with any additional questions and have a pixie dusted stay!
