    I am staying offsite but plan on using magicbands at the park for my family. If I purchase tickets and the magicbands through the Disney website will the magicbands already become linked to the tickets? When must magicbands be ordered by?

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to planDisney, Patrice!

    Can you believe your Disney adventure is just a few days away? I am sure the countdown has already begun at your home! I cannot wait for you to experience all the magic that awaits you at the Walt Disney World Resort and make pixie-dusted memories with your family.

    If you plan to buy MagicBands on, I recommend making your purchase as soon as possible so they arrive at your home in time for your vacation. MagicBands are also available at several shops throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, so you can buy them upon arrival. The MagicBands you order online at or buy at merchandise locations are not automatically linked to your Disney account. You will need to link them online or via the My Disney Experience app. 

    To link your MagicBands using the My Disney Experience app, open the app on your mobile device, tap the three horizontal lines at the bottom of the screen, scroll down until you see the option Link to Account, and then tap to scan your MagicBand or enter its ID number.

    planDisney tip: Before linking your MagicBands, be sure the family members in your travel party are included in your Family & Friends list.

    I hope this information is helpful, Patrice. Come back to visit us real soon if you have additional questions, and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
