    My teenager went to Disney World with her school chorus group in April 2017. Can I link her magic band to my account for FastPass+?

    Hi Leslie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am delighted that you brought this question to us!

    You should be able to link your daughter's MagicBand to your account as long as it was not linked to another My Disney Experience account. If no one has deactivated it, it should still be an active MagicBand. 

    To link the MagicBand, go to My Disney Experience, click on MagicBands and Cards and then click on "Link." If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, she will also receive a new MagicBand unless you decline the new one. All of my MagicBands are still linked in My Disney Experience account. Should you have trouble linking the MagicBand, call 407-939-4357 to get specific help your My Disney Experience account.

    When you get ready to make your Fast Pass+ selections, just be sure that everyone in your party has the same number of theme park tickets. The system will only allow you to make selections for the number of days you have valid theme park admission. 

    Leslie, it sounds like you are ready to make your Fast Pass+ selections! Remember to consider the location of your experiences when making those choices. Since we prefer to do our first three Fast Pass+ rides back to back, we keep them close together geographically so that we are not trekking back and forth across the park in a short amount of time.

    Or, we plan them so that we do them in a geographic order. In Magic Kingdom, for example, we will start at Space Mountain, then do the Seven Dwarfs Mine Train and end at Big Thunder Mountain Railroad. I hope you are using the My Disney Experience Mobile App to help make plans! It has a nice "Get Directions" feature that will show you estimated transit times between locations.

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
