    If I buy a magicband from the Disney store for an upcoming trip, how does my reservation information get transferred to it?

    Hi David!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for your upcoming visit, you will receive complimentary MagicBands. You will need to create a My Disney Experience account. Link your Resort information there. You will then be able to customize your complimentary MagicBands under the link that says MagicBands and Cards. If, however, you prefer to purchase one from a Disney Store, you certainly can do that. In that case, you would simply enter the information about your new MagicBand into your My Disney Experience account.

    If you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will not receive complimentary MagicBands. In that case, you will have to purchase your own and still enter the MagicBand information into your account. You can also book Advanced Dining Reservations, make FastPass+ choices, buy Theme Park Admission tickets (and more!) and link everything together on your MagicBand through My Disney Experience. It is a fantastic planning tool and will make your Walt Disney World vacation even more special!

    Please let us know if we can help you with any other planning questions. Have a wonderful day!
