    We received our new Magic+ band from Disney that we ordered via MDE. Does that mean it is linked and charged or do we have to perform those duties write our trip.

    Hi there Honora!  Welcome to planDisney.

    Hooray!  Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation will be here in just a few short days.  I'm glad to hear your MagicBands have arrived.  That means you are one step closer to enjoying all the magic of the 50th Anniversary Celebration.

    Since you ordered MagicBands associated with a Disney Resorts Collection hotel stay through your My Disney Experience account, they are already linked to each Guest and will work for any "Mickey to Mickey" touchpoints, such as theme park entrance tapstyles, Lightning Lane entrances, merchandise sales terminals, and the door to your Disney Resort Hotel room.

    If you would like to use the interactive features of your new MagicBand+, you will need to charge it and pair it with your mobile device.  Use the menu button in the lower right corner of the My Disney Experience mobile app to select "MagicBands and More" and follow the steps to pair your band and change the settings.  You'll then be able to enjoy the lights and vibrations of MagicBand+ interacting with nighttime spectaculars, as well as play Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge or interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection golden statues in the parks.

    Honora, I am wishing you a wonderful vacation!  Please let us know if you have any additional questions.  We are always happy to help.
