    how do I think my hotel reservations to the art of animation to my disney experince?

    Hi Heather! Welcome to planDisney!

    I see that you have a trip planned to Walt Disney World Resort very soon! It will be here before you know it! I'm glad that you're taking the extra steps to prepare and have all your plans in place before your arrival. It seems as though you may already have it, but if not, be sure to download the My Disney Experience app to your mobile phone or device. What is it that Ariel says? "I've got gadgets and gizmos a-plenty!" This trusty mobile app allows you to have all the necessary gadgets and gizmos in one easily accessible place! From your park tickets and park pass reservations to your dining reservations and room key, the My Disney Experience app is a must-have for any Walt Disney World vacation.

    That being said, we will be using that to link your current hotel reservations! I'll also provide directions to link your reservation online, just in case you don't have access to the app or a mobile device. So first, open the My Disney Experience app and click the menu button in the bottom right corner. Choose the option for "Resort Hotel." Next, you will input the confirmation number associated with the reservation, as well as your last name. With the click of that magical "Submit" button, your reservation at Disney's Art of Animation Resort will be linked!

    To link this reservation online, the process is quite similar. Hover over the "My Disney Experience" icon on the purple menu bar at the top of the page until you see a drop-down menu appear. Select "My Plans." You will be prompted to log in to your My Disney Experience account if you have not yet done so. Hover over the option for "Resort Hotel," then choose "Link Reservation" from the drop-down menu. Again, you will input the confirmation number and last name associated with the reservation and submit that information. As quickly as you can say "Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo," your resort hotel reservation will be linked!

    Heather, after linking your resort hotel reservation, you'll be able to select discounted MagicBands for your stay! In the My Disney Experience app, open up the "Resort Hotel" tab again and select "Choose MagicBands." You can choose a MagicBand for each Guest on your reservation at a fraction of the normal price. I love using MagicBands during my Walt Disney World vacations because they provide yet another way to have all of my plans in one handy place, my wrist!

    I hope you enjoy your stay at the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Ta ta for now, Heather!
