    We are traveling to WDW in July 2018. Can I purchase a magic band for a stocking stuffer Christmas 2017 and then link it to my admission ticket that I will purchase closer to the vacation?

    Hey Julia!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your awesome question about MagicBands!

    Julia, I love the idea of purchasing a MagicBand as a stocking stuffer! Why did I not think of this myself? With so many new MagicBand colors and designs available, the possibilities are endless! I am sure that whoever you gift a MagicBand will be very happy.

    You can most certainly purchase a MagicBand in 2017 to link and use in 2018! In fact, you can link the MagicBand to a My Disney Experience account as soon as your recipient receives it. You do not need to purchase a Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket in order to link it to a Disney account. All you need is the 12-digit identification number on the back of the MagicBand to successfully link it. Linking the MagicBand will make it “active” in the Disney account. Once a theme park admission ticket is purchased and linked to the same account, it will automatically be associated to the MagicBand. In addition, all FastPass+ selections, Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservations and other personal entitlements will automatically associate to the active MagicBand!

    Julia, I hope I have helped answer your question. If you have any additional questions, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again. We are all ears!
