    I booked a package for July 2020. When will my magic band number show up in my profile? Is it automatic after I book, or only when I order the Magic bands? I’m seeing a Magic band number in my profile, but think it may be from our 2014 trip. I’m not sure

    Hi, Catherine!  Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with this great question.

    What did we do before MagicBands?  MagicBands add a level of convenience to so many aspects of your Walt Disney World Resort vacation.  I feel like my vacation has officially started as soon as I put my MagicBand on at the airport, before boarding Disney's Magical Express.  I know that once I'm wearing my MagicBand, I have easy access to all of the plans that I have made with My Disney Experience.  My kids love that they can use their own MagicBands to unlock the door of our Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room.  I love that my MagicBand allows me to make purchases without having to dig through my bag and find my wallet.  When you are in a hurry or have your hands full, it is so easy to simply tap your MagicBand and enter your PIN number to make a purchase.

    Another great feature of MagicBands is that they are reusable.  You can have several different MagicBands associated with your My Disney Experience account at a time and use them interchangeably until the batteries run out.  If you have not yet selected your MagicBand for your upcoming trip, the one you are seeing in your My Disney Experience profile would be from a previous trip.  Once you order your MagicBand for your next vacation, you will also see it listed in your My Disney Experience account.

    I love to bring several MagicBands with me when I visit the Walt Disney World Resort and change them to coordinate with my outfits.  Walt Disney World Resort Hotel guests receive a complimentary solid color MagicBand with each stay.  Recently, the option was also added for resort hotel guests to upgrade their MagicBands to various other designs.  If guests choose to upgrade, these MagicBands may be purchased at a discounted rate.  Please note that this option to upgrade has been very popular, and the selection of upgraded MagicBand designs is subject to availability and may vary.  A wide variety of MagicBands are also available to purchase at retail prices on  

    See ya real soon!
