    We are visiting Disney for the first time in January. If we order character Magic Bands from the Disney Store online, can we use them in the park? If so, how do we link them to our account? Thanks!

    Hi Courtney!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are one of my favorite ways to add convenience to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It is so nice to be able to have access to our Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Disney PhotoPass account all with a touch of my wrist! If you purchased retail MagicBands from the Disney Store, you can certainly use those on your next Walt Disney World Resort vacation by linking your MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account . You will simply need to enter the 12-digit ID number located on the inside of each MagicBand and then assign it to yourself or a member of your Friends & Family List! Once your MagicBand is linked, you will see it in the MagicBands & Cards section of your My Disney Experience account and then you are ready to hit the theme parks!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
