    Unfortunately our hotel housekeeping threw away our Magic Band boxes - luckily not our Magic Bands - they did apologise but nevertheless we do not have any instructions now home how to save to desktop?

    Hello Gillian,

    Welcome to planDisney. Around here we like to say “Hakuna Matata” which means no worries! I’m glad you brought your question to us because this is an easy fix, so let’s get started. 

    First, MagicBands are now called DisneyBand+ in most countries, however, the Walt Disney World Resort website for Great Britain sometimes still refers to them as MagicBand/MagicBand+. I will use the term "DisneyBand+/MagicBand+" to help you navigate the directions if one or the other term is used on the website.

    If your DisneyBand+/MagicBand+ is already associated with your upcoming stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, your DisneyBand+/MagicBand+ should be linked to your profile in your My Disney Experience account, so be sure to check your My Disney Experience account under “My Disney Bands & Cards.” If not, follow these instructions to link it to your My Disney Experience account. They are super simple! 

    You will be on your way before you know it, Gillian. I recommend that you pack your DisneyBand+/MagicBand+ in your park bag so you can use it even if your Disney Resort hotel room isn’t ready upon your arrival. Just leave your other luggage with Bell Services and head to your favorite park! Your My Disney Experience app will notify you when your room is ready.

    I hope you found this information helpful. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you have other questions about making your Walt Disney World Resort holiday magical!

    As Tigger likes to say, ta-ta for now!

Hi! I'm a dreamer and doer who loves exploring the big blue world! My love for Disney began at Walt Disney World Resort and after my first Disney Cruise Line vacation I was hooked. I especially enjoy the ships' adult-exclusive spaces and activities while experiencing the magic only Disney can create. A Land and Sea vacation combining an action-packed Walt Disney World Resort visit and a relaxing Disney Cruise Line voyage is my favorite way to do Disney. I can't wait to help you create your magical memories! Learn More About Shannon
