    We have purchased our park tickets and cards have arrived at our home. We also have Magic Bands waiting to be picked up at the Boardwalk Hotel at arrival. Will we need to have both the Magic Bands and park tickets or is it possible to link them? Thanks

    Hello Andrea!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Isn’t it the most exciting thing on earth when magical mail arrives? You must be counting the days for your Walt Disney World Resort adventure!

    You can go ahead and link your park tickets to your My Disney Experience account and assign them to each Guest in your travel party. This way you will be able to make FastPass+ selections in advance, and since you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel you can do so 60 days prior to your arrival.

    Once you arrive at Disney’s BoardWalk Inn, stop by Front Desk to retrieve your MagicBands. The MagicBands will be activated and the theme park tickets will be linked to them. However, I always like to have my family’s cards with me in my wallet while touring just in case technical difficulties arise. Nothing has ever happened, but I always prefer to be prepared.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Andrea. Thank you for stopping by once again.

    Best magical wishes,
