    The reservation was made in a group account. We all have our magic band but in our own account. How can we link our magic band with the new group account? We also have some 1st time traveler to disney, if we order magic band, will they be at the hotel?

    Bonjour Lise!

    Welcome to planDisney, the most magical place on the internet! I was so excited when I saw a fellow Québécoise in our queue, and I am honoured to be a part of your planning journey. I am also thrilled that some of your party will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort for the first time. What a special occasion! Make sure to pick up some complimentary "First Visit" buttons at the front desk of your Resort.

    Unfortunately, MagicBands cannot be reassigned to another account after being linked. However, you can have your reservations reassigned to the correct accounts. To do so, go into the group account's Family & Friends List. Then, click on one of the profiles for somebody in your group. Make sure that everyone knows the information from their accounts! You may then click on "Update" and "Share Planning with [their name]," which will send them an invitation. Once they have accepted the email invitation, the reservations should be linked to their account. If you are having any issues with these steps, don't hesitate to contact a Cast Member via chat, email or phone. Indeed, Cast Members truly are real-life fairy godparents, and I always go to them whenever I have issues. As for your MagicBands, you are correct that they will be at the front desk of your Resort, as they, unfortunately, cannot be shipped to Canada.

    Now, I thought I would share some tips and recommendations for you and your party. First, I highly recommend checking out the new attraction Guardians of the Galaxy - Cosmic Rewind. This new attraction is perfect for the thrill-seekers in your group and is the perfect blend between Space Mountain and Expedition Everest. Second, you will be visiting during my favourite time: the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival. I love going from booth to booth to try new foods, and the Eat to the Beat Concert Series makes your vacation unique. Lastly, take a peek at all the special offerings available for the World's Most Magical Celebration. Indeed, the Walt Disney World Resort is celebrating its 50th anniversary, and you will be able to find unique celebratory offerings everywhere. Personally, I highly recommend watching Disney Enchantment and Harmonious at Magic Kingdom Park and EPCOT, respectively. For some extra magic, watch Disney Enchantment from the middle of Main Street USA.

    I hope this was helpful, Lise, and that you and your Ohana will have the best day ever on your next Disney vacation. If you have any other questions in the time leading up to your trip, please don't hesitate to reach back out. Il me fera toujours plaisir de vous aider!

    À bientôt et bon appétit!
