    I purchased a 5 day park hopper for my family and I. I got the magic bands in the mail.... are the tickets loaded to the bands already?

    Hi Valeigh!

    I'm so excited to hear that you will be using MagicBands for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! It's so nice to be able to access your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. And if you will be staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels, then your MagicBands will also serve as your room keys and they will allow you to make purchases to be charged to your room account!

    My Disney Experience is the magic that makes your MagicBands work. First, if you haven't already done so, you will need to add all of your family members to your My Disney Experience Family & Friends List. If you ordered MagicBands through a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, then they will automatically be linked to your family members in your My Disney Experience account. However, if you purchased MagicBands through Shop Disney without a Disney Resort hotel reservation, then you will need to link them to each of your family members in your My Disney Experience account prior to use. Your theme park tickets must also be linked to your account prior to your vacation. Once your tickets and MagicBands are all linked to each member of your family, then you are all set to use your MagicBands to enter each of the theme parks! You can check your links by visiting the My Disney Experience MagicBands and Cards page and the My Disney Experience My Plans page.

    Be sure to download the My Disney Experience mobile app because it's the easiest way to manage all of your vacation entitlements and reservations. Also, you can make and change FastPass+ reservations right from the app, so you can make the most of your time in the theme parks! Let us know if you have any trouble linking or if you have additional questions. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
