    we are traveling to Disney this September we have received our magic bands but we purchased our tickets after we received them do we need to do anything to activate them...??

    Hi Erika,
    Thanks for submitting your question! You must be so excited-your countdown clock to your vacation is ticking away pretty quickly! Here's the scoop with your tickets and linking them to your Magic Bands. Do you have an account in My Disney Experience yet? If not, you will want to go NOW and create your account. If you already have an account, login and you should be able to see if you have tickets; if they are in there already, you are all set. If not, you will need to link your tickets to your Magic Band. You can use your smartphone and the camera on it in conjunction with the My Disney Experience app or you can hand-enter the alpha numeric code into the website on your desktop computer.

    Now, once you are sure your tickets are in My Disney Experience, please make your FastPass+ selections! These will ensure you can wait in the short line for at least a few attractions each day. If you're going in September, your window is already open, so go ahead and pick some fun things to do.

    Erika, I hope you have a magical vacation. Please come back and see us if you have any additional questions!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
