    Hello, I want to purchase character Magic bands for my family before our 2018 trip but was wondering how to link a purchased character Magicband if we've already been issued standard bands with our reservation? Thank you!!

    Hey Amy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your excellent question about MagicBands!

    You will be happy to know that you can have multiple “active” MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account at any given time! It is quite simple to link your purchased MagicBand to your account in addition to the MagicBand you were issued for having a Disney Resort hotel reservation. In order to link your MagicBand to your Disney Account, please follow the steps below.

    1. If you are not already logged in, please log into your Disney Account.
    2. Click here to link your MagicBand to your Disney Account.
    3. Press “Select” under MagicBand.
    4. Enter the 12-digit MagicBand ID number found on the underside of your MagicBand.

    It is that simple! Your purchased MagicBand is now linked to your Disney Account and can be used interchangeably with any other “active” MagicBands in your account. They will all share the same tickets, reservations, and FastPass+ entitlements.

    Quick Tip: You can visit the MagicBands and Cards section of your Disney Account to verify that all of the MagicBands that you want to use during your vacation are indeed showing as “active” in your Account.

    Amy, I wish you and your family an unforgettable vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. If you have any additional questions, please visit the Moms Panel again.
