    I have just purchased new tickets for Disney. How do i link them to previously used magic bands?

    Hi there, Kris! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Linking your new Walt Disney World Resort tickets to your previously used MagicBands is a great idea! I have certain themed MagicBands that I have purchased over time that are my favorites, and I appreciate that I can use them over and over during my Walt Disney World Resort vacations.

    First, you need to log in to your My Disney Experience account. Next, look to see if your previously used MagicBands are linked to your account. If not, simply use the code located on the back of your MagicBands to link them to your account. This can be done by selecting "MagicBands and Cards" under "My Account" from the My Disney Experience drop-down menu. Scroll down to the bottom and click "Link." Then select "MagicBand" and you can enter the special code from there.

    Next, you'll do the exact same thing with your new tickets. If you purchased them online through your My Disney Experience account, they may already be there, but if not, just use the same steps above for linking "Tickets" instead of "MagicBand."

    Once the tickets and MagicBands are linked and matched to the correct family member, that's all you have to do! As long as your MagicBands are still in working order, they can be used for any active ticket assigned to the same person without any additional steps. Just in case, I suggest you bring your ticket along with your MagicBand the first time you enter any of the theme parks. That way, if there is any issue with either of them, you have them handy and can go see Guest Relations for assistance.

    I hope this helps answer your question! Enjoy your trip!
