    Hi, Can you add fastpass+ times onto the bands after you have them? We did not have all of them on it when we got them. The instructions sounded like you could. It worked when we did it and are listed on them, but am wondering how it gets to the bands??

    Hi Kathleen,

    You can certainly add and modify FastPass+ reservations after you have your MagicBands. During my last Disney visit, I change my FP+ reservations at least 20 times and had no problems at all. You can add or change FP+ reservations several ways: using the free MyDisneyExperience app on your smartphone or tablet, using the MyDisneyExperience section of the website, by using a FastPass+ kiosk in the parks, or by speaking with a cast member at any Disney hotel concierge or park guest relations office. These options all work equally well.

    As an example of how this might work ... on one recent trip I had a FP+ reservation for Epcot's Soarin' at 2:00 pm. I arrived at the park earlier than expected and wanted to experience the ride earlier. I went onto the MyDisneyExperience app on my phone and changed my FP+ selection time to the next available slot, which happened to be about 10 minutes later. By the time I walked from the front of the park to the ride, my new FP+ reservation time had made its way to the attraction and I was able to hop right on. Similarly, if you were running late and knew that you would not make it in time for a FP+ reservation, you could be in the parks and change your FP+ to a later time.

    The FP+ reservations are made and stored on a central computer system, not on your band itself. Any changes happen in Disney's large servers, no on your wrist. When you get to the attraction, touching your band just identifies you to the computers so it can find your reservation information.

    Go ahead and add/change your reservations as often as makes sense for your touring. Please let us know if you have additional questions.
