    Hi there, Tony! Thanks for bringing your great question our way.

    Can you believe that you're only a few sleeps away from your vacation at Walt Disney World Resort? I couldn't be more excited for you! Before you know it, you'll be enjoying your favorite snack on Main Street U.S.A. or getting ready to hop on a thrilling attraction. And when it comes to your MagicBand, this handy device feels a little like a magic wand that you wear, allowing you to unlock everything that Walt Disney World Resort has to offer. I'd love to help you make sure that everything's good to go before you arrive!

    Tony, a MagicBand 2 is a little different from a MagicBand+. First, I'd suggest making sure you know which MagicBand you have. A MagicBand+ comes with a charger and has light and haptic vibrations that you can set up. If this is the style of MagicBand you have, you can follow the steps outlined in the MagicBand+ Setup page!

    A MagicBand 2 does not come with a charger, but is an upgraded version of the original MagicBand we know and love! A classic MagicBand or MagicBand 2 does not require programming or setup. No matter which MagicBand variety you have, you'll be able to use your band to tap into the parks, check in at Lightning Lane entrances and virtual queues, and charge back to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room.

    If you need more help with your MagicBand, I'd suggest calling a friendly Cast Member! They'll be able to help you with any next steps that are available to you. Also, take some time to download and explore the My Disney Experience app before you arrive! This will allow you to check wait times for attractions, access virtual queues, and even mobile order food. Combined with the MagicBand, you're sure to not miss a minute of the magic! 

    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction, Tony! If you have any other questions, please visit us again. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
