    I am trying to set up four new MagicBand +. Using NFC I was able to add them to our account, but I have not been able to get them to bluetooth pair to my phone. With full charge, I press to power on, but 3 sec. press does *not* go blue on any. Thoughts?

    Welcome to planDisney, MX, and thanks for sending us this great question! I'll admit I'm not anyone's Fairy Godmother regarding technology, but I have some ideas you can try. First, we need to get your MagicBand+ working so you can enjoy all the bells and whistles that come with it! I love the ease of tapping into the theme parks and Lightning Lane entrances, and I'm still delighted by the interface the bands have with nighttime spectaculars like World of Color - ONE. You'll love exploring what your MagicBand+ can do at Disneyland Resort!

    My panelist pal Mandy answered a question about pairing a MagicBand+ for a Walt Disney World Resort guest, but the technology is the same. She suggests turning off Bluetooth and your phone for a soft reboot. You can follow her step-by-step instructions to see if this solves your problem. 

    I'd also suggest looking over the MagicBand+ Support page, and feel free to reach out to a knowledgeable Cast Member at the Guest Information and Ticket Sales line. They can direct you through some steps to try. And you can also stop by Guest Services in person once you're at Disneyland Resort; they'll be glad to help you.

    Technology. We can't live with it, and we can't live without it. It sounds like you've tried several approaches, MX, so I hope I've given you some ideas that will help you pair those bands. I'll wave my magic wand to sprinkle your upcoming visit with pixie dust. And NO technology glitches are allowed! Please stop back by planDisney anytime!

    Magic awaits,
