    Hi, I am planning to visit Disney World in 2017 and stay in the Animal Kingdom, I am planning to book my holiday with a local travel agent. I am just wondering do I receive a MagicBand? also how do I link my MagicBand to my account? Many Thanks,

    Hi Charlotte!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. You will be happy to know that every Guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is given a complimentary Magic Band. Once your reservation is made, go to My Disney Experience and create an account. Once you login to your account, you can then begin linking all parts of your magical Disney vacation together--Resort reservations, FastPass+ choices, Advanced Dining Reservations and more! You can also customize your Magic Band here and link everything TO your Magic Band. Once you have accomplished this, your Magic Band will be the key to the magic and all of your linked information will be easy to access with one touch of your Magic Band. It is one of the things I love the most about a vacation at Walt Disney World!

    Keep in mind that you can also purchase Magic Bands online or from the Shop Disney Parks app if you would like it to be specialized in any way. Take a look HERE for more information about this fantastic service! One more thing: Magic Bands, once customized, can only be sent to US addresses. You will pick yours up upon check in. Don't worry, the process is easy and seamless. Before you know it, you will have them in hand and be off and running!

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can do to help you with your planning. Have a wonderful day!
