    We have a trip to bay lake villas in 18 days…. How do I link my last years magic bands to the app?

    Hi Linda!
    Thanks for coming to planDisney with your question. I love Bay Lake Tower at Disney's Contemporary Resort! Being within walking distance of Magic Kingdom just doesn't get any better!
    For linking a MagicBand or MagicBand+, you'll first want to download the My Disney Experience app on your mobile device. If you're using a MagicBand, visit the "Link to Account" section on the My Disney Experience app and enter the 12-digit ID number on the back of the band to link and assign the band to a guest. 
    If you have a MagicBand+, power on the MagicBand+ by pressing the button on the back of the band and then tap your phone to the band or go to the "Link to Account" section on the app. 
    The app will guide you through the remaining steps to link and assign the band. You can even customize the colors of the lights on the MagicBand+ after it's been assigned! 
    Linda, I recommend doing this before arriving at Walt Disney World Resort to ensure that the software is up to date and the MagicBand+ is fully charged.
    I hope you enjoy the new experiences that come with using a MagicBand+, whether you're waving to the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection or watching it light up during the various Nighttime Spectaculars!
