    If I purchase park tickets and a special event ticket without having a magic band, can they be linked to one after I purchase one?

    Hi Matthew and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Great news! Once you purchase tickets to Disney Parks or a special event ticket, you can link those tickets to your My Disney Experience account. You can do this on your home computer or by using the My Disney Experience app on your tablet or smartphone. 

    The next step will be to purchase a Magic Band. If you don't want to wait until you visit the parks, you can always order one through the Shop Disney Parks app. If you decide to wait until you visit one of the parks, you will always have several Magic Bands to choose from. They come in a variety of colors and often you can find special, limited edition designs. 

    Once you purchase a Magic Band, you can link it to your My Disney Experience account. You'll be a pro after linking your tickets! Once the Magic Band and tickets are linked, you can begin using the Magic Band to enter the parks, for Disney PhotoPass photos, and for FastPass+ access. 

    If I can help you further with Magic Bands or My Disney experience, please let me know! 
    Wishing you happy planning and a magical vacation,
