My Disney Experience®
Create an account and log into My Disney Experience. This will allow you to: Choose FastPass+ Selections (Valid theme park admission is required to use FastPass+ service.); Make dining reservations; Look up entertainment times and locations; Find out where your favorite characters are for Meet and Greets; Link your hotel reservation, dinner reservations and pre-order your MagicBand*.
Anyone staying onsite at a Walt Disney World owned & operated resort will receive a MagicBand. Offsite guests will not receive MagicBands (including those staying at the Swan & Dolphin, Shades of Green & the Bonnet Creek area); however, you can purchase a Magic Band from DisneyStore.com before your trip or in one of the shops at Walt Disney World after you arrive and have your tickets and FastPass+ reservations linked to your band.
The MagicBand is the key to everything in your My Disney Experience account. You use it to open your hotel door; if you have tickets you use it to enter the parks; if you left a credit card on file you can use it to charge back to your room account (with a PIN code); if you’ve made your FastPass+ reservations you use it to enter the FastPass queues; if you are using Disney’s Magical Express you use it to check-in for your transfers. The band operates using RFID technology and to access all of the features you touch the Mickey head on the band to the Mickey head on the door, payment pad, entry point, etc.
You can even customize your band. As long as you book your reservation far enough in advance you can choose the color you prefer (and the name on the inside of the band): pink, red, blue, green, orange, yellow & gray are the choices. Once you arrive in the World Disney offers several items that you can purchase to enhance your band.
