    Our vacation package has been purchased....can I buy the magicbands and then link them to my account?

    Hi Kelly and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You absolutely can purchase MagicBands and link them to your My Disney Experience account but you might not have to. If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands for everyone in your party. You can customize the MagicBands in My Disney Experience and if you live in the United States they will be shipped to you. 

    If you are not staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase MagicBands from the Disney Store or the Shop Disney Parks app. Did you know you can now find Shop Disney Parks within your My Disney Experience app? When you receive the MagicBands, they have instructions that clearly tell you how to link them to your My Disney Experience account. 

    Kelly, thank you for visiting us with another great question! Please let us know if we can help you with any other questions!
    Wishing you a magical vacation,
    Amy H.
