They’re designed to make your life easier – they can hold your park ticket, FastPasses, hotel room keys (so long as you’re staying on property at a Walt Disney World hotel), and credit cards at once!

Here are the MagicBands my boyfriend (now hubby) at the time bought especially for us… he chose pink (my favorite color).

How Do You Set Up MagicBands?

Before you can start using your MagicBand, you’ll need to link it to your account.

Using the Walt Disney World mobile phone app or website, log into your account (or create one if you don’t have one already) and go to the section entitled “Link MagicBand.”

Then, you’ll enter the ID located on the underside of the MagicBand.

From there, anything on your Walt Disney World account will automatically get linked to your MagicBand!
