    I was wondering how magic bands work for my kids? How do I link their tickets to the magic band?

    Hey there, Dallas! Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with such a great planning question!

    I am so excited to see that the magic is calling you, and you're answering the call by planning a magical family adventure at The Most Magical Place on Earth. Since it sounds like you have your My Disney Experience account all set and ready to go and you plan on purchasing MagicBands or MagicBand+ for the family, it seems like your planning is off to a practically perfect start. Now, let's tie up your loose planning ends so you can sit back, relax and start your pixie-dusted countdown!

    I think you will be happy to hear that having your kiddos' tickets linked to their MagicBands is actually really easy, and it works ... well, like magic! I am assuming that you are the manager of your kids' plans, so as long as their tickets and MagicBands are properly linked to their names on your My Disney Experience account, their tickets will magically be on their MagicBands for them to tap into the theme parks and Lightning Lane entrances.

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel during your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you can order discounted pre-arrival MagicBands to be shipped to your home. And since you will order each Band specifically for each Guest, the MagicBands arrive at your home linked to the correct Guest and are even customized with their names. 

    If you plan on purchasing MagicBands or MagicBand+ from the shopDisney website or when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, just follow the instructions on the packaging to link the Bands to each kiddo's name on your My Disney Experience account. As long as their tickets are already linked, their Bands will be ready to tap. Let the magic begin!

    I hope this was helpful, Dallas, and I hope you'll stop by again with any questions you may have along the way. You've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon,
