    how do I purchase and activate new bands for my account

    Welcome back to planDisney, Pam!

    A world of magic awaits you at The World's Most Magical Celebration. By day, hunt for Fab 50 character sculptures throughout the four theme parks. By night, bask in the EARidescent glow of the Beacons of Magic

    Apart from my Minnie ears, my must-have accessory for my Disney park days is a MagicBand. I tap into convenience at the park entrances, Lightning Lane entrances, and Disney PhotoPass locations. I've been using the same MagicBand for over two years, but the time may soon come for me to purchase a new one.

    You can purchase a variety of MagicBands on as well as various retail stores on Disney property. In my experience, Disney Pin Traders in Disney Springs offers a large selection of MagicBands and a pleasurable shopping experience. 

    To link a newly purchased MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account online:
    1. Click "Select" under the MagicBand icon.
    2. Enter the ID number found on the back of your MagicBand.

    To link a newly purchased MagicBand in the My Disney Experience mobile app:
    1. Click the three, small lines on the bottom right of the home screen.
    2. Scroll down and click "My Profile."
    3. Click "Magic Bands and Cards."
    4. Click "Link a MagicBand or Card."
    5. Type the ID code found on the back of your MagicBand.

    Once your new MagicBand has been linked to your account, all of your reservations and vacation entitlements are automagically transferred to it. You may also continue to use any previously linked MagicBands. 

    Thanks for tapping into planDisney's desire to help Guests plan their Disney vacations. We hope to see you again real soon!
