    Are our tickets linked to a magic band? And if so, which one?

    Hey there, Melissa! Welcome to planDisney where we love magic in all forms, especially MagicBands! You'll be arriving at Walt Disney World Resort soon, so let's talk about how your bands can make your visit phenomenal.

    As long as your theme park tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account, any MagicBand linked to you will be attached to that ticket. All your plans in the account will be connected to your band, so you can use it as your Disney Resort Hotel room key, scan in at the theme park entrances, and more. This is true for each party member; MagicBands linked to a guest will be attached to all of that guest's plans.

    Just so you know, once a MagicBand is assigned to a guest, it cannot be transferred. I like to say MagicBands pair for life! 

    If you have multiple MagicBands linked to your account, they will all be attached to your plans. I have several bands in varying colors and themes so I can change them out with my mood or outfit. This is the way! 

    You can see what bands are actively linked to your account online or in the mobile app by selecting "MagicBands & Cards" under your account profile. The app shows a row of options for MagicBand+, MagicBand, and Admission Cards. These are all the types of media you can use as your theme park ticket and more. When you select a specific category, you'll see a list of any of those linked to your account.

    The older versions of MagicBands are easily interchangeable; just snap on the color you want and go! The newer rechargeable MagicBand+ is also interchangeable but requires some extra steps. When you trade them out, you'll need to be sure the band you want to use is connected to Bluetooth and paired with your app. If you forget to do this, the Guest Relations Cast Members will happily help you. 

    Melissa, I hope your party can "band" together for some "magic" on your upcoming trip! Please stop by planDisney anytime.

    Magic awaits,
