    hello. we are visiting in april and will be staying at shades of green. we are purchasing our 7 day passes at the resort. we wanted to order the magic bands. what is the process to get the tickets put onto the magic band?

    Hi Therese!
    I'm sure you and your family are getting excited about your upcoming vacation! I love staying at Shades of Green-it's a beautiful getaway right on Disney property.

    If you can, I would suggest ordering your tickets as soon as possible so you can take advantage of the 30 day window to make your FastPass+ selections in March. You tell me that you'd planned on purchasing your tickets at Shades of Green. You may consider checking with your local Morale, Welfare and Recreation/Information, Tickets and Travel office so you can get your exchange passes as soon as possible. The code on the back side of your exchange pass is the one you put into My Disney Experience to take advantage of the FastPass+ system. Without that code, you can't make your FastPass+ selections. Please be advised that you still MUST take that exchange pass to the ticket window with your ID to get tickets once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. The code alone in My Disney Experience isn't enough to gain admission to the parks.

    If you order Magic Bands before you arrive, you can enter them into My Disney Experience also and when you hand over your exchange passes for tickets, the Cast Member can put your new tickets right onto your Magic Bands for you.

    Please feel free to come back and see me with any other questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
