    Hello, If we are staying in a time share resort - can we still purchase the wristbands and link them to our accounts for rides and payment of items throughout the day?


    I have some excellent news for you! You can purchase retail a MagicBand through Disneystore.com or through the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App if you would like to show off your favorite Disney Character or theme, but you will also receive a complimentary MagicBand for each Guest on your Reservation simply because you are planning to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel! 

    To customize the MagicBands for your party, simply log-in to your My Disney Experience account. When you select the MagicBands & Cards tab, you should see your upcoming Dinsey Vacation Club Resort Reservation. There will be a button on the right of your screen that you can click to customize your MagicBand. Chose your favorite color and a name that will be printed on the underside, visible to Cast Members at the touchpoints whenever you reach your FastPass+ attractions.

    You can expect that a mighty magical box containing your customized MagicBands will arrive in your mailbox approximately one month before your vacation begins. If you are flying and plan to use complimentary Disney's Magical Express transportation from Orlando International Airport to your Disney Vacation Club Resort, remember to wear your MagicBand proudly on your travel day. You can use it for the very first time at the podium when you check-in for your motor coach ride. Simple!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
