    Can you purchase magic bands once you check into a resort and will they be linked to your “my Disney Experience “ for park tickets and memory maker?

    Hi Ken! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! Sounds like you are currently immersed in the most vacation ever at Walt Disney World Resort. There is so much to celebrate right now with the return of Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park. Over at Disney's Hollywood Studios, stay late to catch Fantasmic! to finish up your park day.

    You will find countless MagicBands and MagicBand+ options at your Disney Resorts Collection Resort, theme parks, and Disney Springs. Once you make your selection, you can link it to your My Disney Experience Account very easily through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Grab your smartphone and follow these steps.

    Open the app, click on the three horizontal lines at the bottom right-hand corner, and select "MagicBands and More." Scroll to the bottom and tap "Link Your MagicBand or Card." From here you can choose the best option to link, follow the prompts, and submit. If you purchase a MagicBand+ make sure your band is properly charged to maximize its capabilities. It may need to be updated with the latest software.

    Once you complete these steps, you are good to go. You can use your new themed arm candy to open your Disney resort door, charge to your hotel folio, enter the theme parks, and access Disney PhotoPass® Services.

    Keeping it Magical,
