    What do I do if I forgot my magic bands ?

    Hello Tameeca, and welcome to planDisney!

    Oh, bother! It happens to the best of us. No matter how many pre-packing checklists I have, sometimes I forget to pack something important, like a toothbrush.

    Hakuna Matata! No worries Tameeca, if you have a smartphone device with an Apple Wallet or Google Pay option, or even an Apple Watch, I can walk you through the process to set up your mobile devices to use in place of your MagicBands. Even though you probably purchased them to color coordinate with your wardrobe or to support the fandom of your favorite Disney Character or attraction, your smartphone will make a good backup for you.

    Open your My Disney Experience mobile app and tap the 3 horizontal lines in the lower right corner. Tap the “Disney MagicMobile” button from the menu of options. Tap the “+” button in the upper right corner to create a pass for you or anyone on your “My Family & Friends” list who needs a mobile pass. Check their name from the list, and a style for their pass. Once you have created them, add them to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay. You can share the passes with the members of your group. You are now able to use your Disney MagicMobile pass to access your theme park admission at the Main Entrance gates. You can use them to add PhotoPass photos to your Memory Maker account, redeem any Genie+ or Lightning Lane experiences, and if you are a Guest of a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you can charge food and merchandise to your room account.

    Speaking of merchandise, you can always purchase a new MagicBand in select retail locations in Disney Theme Parks and Disney Springs. You can also find them in select shops of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. If you need help linking them to your My Disney Experience account, a friendly Cast Member can assist you. By the way, if you also forgot your toothbrush, like me, you can find toiletry and convenience items in the gift shops of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. I hope you packed your sense of adventure and took all the fun with you so you can have a magical time and enjoy the World’s Most Magical Celebration!

    See ya real soon,
