    Hello! I purchased my park tickets online and also purchased Magic Bands. Will I be able to use the Magic Bands? If so, where will I get those activated. I will not be staying on Disney property. Thanks!

    Hi Magda!

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    As a fan of MagicBands, I am excited to know that you are planning to use them on your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! I am hoping that you created a My Disney Experience account and linked your theme park tickets.

    In your My Disney Experience account, make sure that the folks traveling with you are also connected or listed. You may have to create a profile for them through your My Family & Friends List and then select the option to manage all plans. If they have their own My Disney Experience accounts, you will need to send them an invitation to connect. When linking your tickets, you will need to assign them to each Guest.

    Once you have everyone listed in your My Disney Experience account, you should be able to link and assign those MagicBands to each person. Just log into My Disney Experience, click on My Plans, click on the Plus sign to Add More Plans, and then click on Link Reservations and Purchases.

    If you have not done so already, you need to make Disney Park Pass system reservations. Every Guest must have park pass reservations to enter a theme park. In looking at the theme park reservation availability calendar, I see that, for those with theme park tickets, park pass reservations are currently unavailable for Disney's Hollywood Studios on the day of your arrival. There is some availability a few days later!

    Magda, with your theme park tickets and MagicBands linked in My Disney Experience, you should be good to enter the parks. If something goes awry at the park entrance, there are Cast Members there ready to assist. We cannot wait to welcome you for an Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
