    Magic bands staying off property. If we purchase bands in advance how to link or would it be better to purchase the bands inside the first park?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Marsha!

    MagicBands are my favorite accessory during a Walt Disney World Resort vacation! The convenience of being able to use my MagicBand to access my theme park admission tickets, FastPass+ reservations and to collect my Disney PhotoPass Service photos is fantastic. Everything is right there on my wrist! 

    You can easily link MagicBands purchased online! I have found several graphic ones via the Shop Disney Parks mobile app and the Disney Parks online store that I plan to buy and link before my upcoming visit. To link a MagicBand, be sure to all Guests in your party are connected in Family & Friends in your My Disney Experience account. Once your MagicBands arrive, log into your account and find the MagicBands and Cards section where you will enter the 12-digit Band ID number located on the back. You will be prompted to select which member from your Friends and Family list will be assigned that particular MagicBand. You will need to do this for each one you purchase and should only take a few minutes for each one.

    I hope you find this information helpful, Marsha! Please visit us again should other questions arise as you plan your magical visit.
