    We are planning a trip for our daughters during their spring break in March. We will be staying at AKL. We will be purchasing our tickets separately. Will we still get magic bands and how do we link the two together?


    You must be so excited for your upcoming visit to Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge! You are sure to have a wild time at this stunningly beautiful, naturally entertaining, peaceful Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    I have great news: all registered Guests at any Walt Disney World Resort hotel will receive a MagicBand! To select your favorite color and customise the name printed on the inside, visit the MagicBands & Cards section of your My Disney Experience account. You can also confirm your mailing address at the same time. Then keep an eye on your mailbox about one month before your arrival for your enchanted box. If you are flying to Orlando International Airport and will be using Disney's Magical Express Motorcoach transportation to Walt Disney World Resort, be sure to wear your MagicBand on travel day. You can use this to check-in at the podium!

    All Guests will need to add theme park admission tickets to the My Reservations & Tickets section of My Disney Experience to use a MagicBand for theme park entry and also to reserve access to anticipated attractions with FastPass+ up to 60-days before arrival. Simply link using the unique code located on the back of your Theme Park Admission Card. 

    To streamline planning, be sure to connect all Guests traveling together through Family & Friends on your My Disney Experience account. This will make planning Advance Dining Reservations, some activities, Disney PhotoPass Photography sharing and FastPass+ selection much easier! 

    Please let us know how else we can assist as you continue planning the perfect Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Wishing you many magical memories,
