    We are staying at a Disney Resort in July and I received the email to customize my magic bands so they can ship but when I log in it’s asking me for the band ID# which I don’t have. How do I customize when I don’t yet have a band ID #?

    Hi Nikole!

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World Resort Vacation is just around the corner! MagicBands are probably my favorite perk of staying in a Disney Resort Hotel because of all of the neat things they can do but also how helpful they are. They'll serve as your theme park admission tickets, your Disney Resort Hotel room key, your Disney PhotoPass link, and you can charge items back to the credit card on file with your resort room. You literally don't have to worry about losing or keeping up with your wallet or purse your entire vacation. (And should you lose your MagicBand, Disney's Guest Relations will deactivate your old band and issue a new one in an instant!)

    To personalize your MagicBands, log in to your My Disney Experience profile, select 'MagicBands and Cards', and look near the top of the page. From here you'll be able to select one of eight colors per band. And to further help decipher whose band is who's you'll be able to inscribe a name or nickname on the inside part of the band, which helps when multiple people select the same color.

    If you're on a mobile device and you don't see where to personalize your bands try again on a computer. If you still don't see the personalization option, please call (407) 939-4357. Do try to log in ASAP as the bands will ship to your house auto-magically 30 days before your check-in date.

    Really cool bonus tip: MagicBands are forever linked to their person's My Disney Experience profile, and any ticket you link in the future will connect to any band you've ever had. So choose different colors on future trips so you can mix and match your bands to your different daily Disney outfits!

    We'll See You Real Soon, Nikole!
