Top Five Tips for Using My Disney Experience

With the MyMagic+ test fully implemented at the theme parks and resorts, there are still a lot of questions about using it and planning your trip. By the end of January, all of the traditional paper FastPass machines will be removed from all four theme parks, with FastPass+ being used exclusively.

Tip #1: Once you have booked a Walt Disney World vacation, it’s important that you go to StartYourDisneyExperience.com right away. Once you have linked your reservation, you will be able to use the itinerary tool, My Disney Experience.

Tip #2: Download the My Disney Experience app for your smart phone. You will be able to view and modify your dining reservations and FastPass+ selections right from your phone throughout your trip with this handy app. You can also view wait times for popular attractions as well as theme park maps.

Tip #3: Only the primary guest (or first guest name on the reservation) should link the reservation on StartYourDisneyExperience.com. It’s also important that he/she use the same first and last name (spelled exactly the same) as the confirmation name in their profile. You will have an opportunity to use your nickname or preferred name later, when personalizingMagicBands.

Tip #4: Only the primary guest (or first guest name on the reservation) should set up their children in the “Family & Friends” section of the My Disney Experience site.

Tip #5: You will receive a MagicBand for each new reservation you make at the Walt Disney World Resort. If you have a MagicBand from a past stay, you may choose to use that MagicBand during your upcoming trip (unless it has been deactivated on the My Disney Experience site).
