    I have reservations and also have friends joining me, I have magic bands picked out for my party but want to know if I can also order them for my friends at the same time.

    Heigh-Ho Desiree,

    Walt Disney World, with Family & Friends, is my Dream Come True. I love sharing and experiencing Walt Disney World with those who are also filled with wonder and amazement each time they see it and planning is so easy with My Disney Experience and the mobile app. Prior to their arrival, your friends, if they have not already done so, should make a My Disney Experience profile and link their tickets. You then can set up your Family & Friend list by sending a request. Your Family & Friend will receive an email and need to accept the request. This will allow your entire group to plan an itinerary and everyone will be able to see it, who has a My Disney Experience. 

    When it comes to ordering your discounted MagicBands, for your Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation, only Guests in your reservation party qualify. When you decide to place your order, in your My Disney Experience profile, you will see you are prompted to choose for only those particular Guests included on your Resort Reservation. But your friends can head over to shopDisney for a magical, array of MagicBand selections. Make sure your friends read the shipping information and order them in a timely fashion. For you, Desiree, order your discounted MagicBands no more than 11-days prior to your arrival, if you would like to receive them before your departure. 

    In the meantime, everyone should continue to explore their My Disney Experience and mobile app and discover how this vacation hub is truly a treasure trove.  And check out Disney’s MagicMobile, this new innovative Disney technology currently works with your Apple wallet. It allows Guests to deposit and design their Walt Disney World tickets/annual passes, into their Apple wallet, so they are easily accessible on your Apple phone or watch. Guests, at a moment’s notice, can decide to use their MagicBand, Apple phone, Apple watch or there is nothing wrong with the old school way and use their Key to the Kingdom card if they have one, to tap at any access point. Walt Disney once said, “We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.” I am excited to see where this new technology leads us.

    I hope this has been helpful and for any further curiouser and curiouser inquiries feel free to ask. Stay up to date by following the Disney Parks Blog and check out our Instagram (@plandisneypanel) for more Disney Magic.

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
