    We are staying at Riverside first and then moving to Wilderness Lodge. Do we need new MagicBands after we change hotels? Are our park tickets and FastPass+ reservations stored on both sets of MagicBands or only on the first MagicBands we get at Riverside?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amy! Thanks for stopping by. 

    Amy, it sounds like you have a magical adventure planned. Disney’s Port Orleans Riverside Resort and Disney’s Wilderness Lodge are two of my favorites! 

    Even though you will be receiving two sets of MagicBands due to your split stay, all your reservation information is linked together in your My Disney Experience account. If you haven’t done so yet, create a My Disney Experience account and link all your reservations. You can easily do so by following the prompts and entering your reservation numbers for your tickets, dining reservations, and resort reservations. I also highly recommend downloading the app into your smart device. Having your information handy while on the go is very helpful! The app can also help you with navigating the parks thanks to the Park Maps, turn by turn directions, park hours, live wait times and so much more. The MDE app is my most valuable planning tool for my Walt Disney World Vacations! 

    Amy, if you wish, you can always decline the second set of MagicBands in your account. I personally enjoy having multiples just in case one gets misplaced. Ultimately, it’s up to you! As long as you have everything linked up in your My Disney Experience account, both MagicBands will be active and working for both hotels and all your reservations! 

    I hope you have a truly magical trip! Be sure to lock in all your FastPass+ for your favorite attractions. As a Resort guest, you can do so 60 days in advance. Just one of the many benefits of staying on property! 

    We hope to see you back again soon. Have a magical day!
