    I accidentally linked my magic band to my son. How can I fix this? I am the primary person on the accout.

    Hello Kelly!

    I too have accidentally linked the wrong MagicBand to the wrong person on my Family and Friends list. I suppose I should have just left that technology to my children lol. 

    Typically you can manage your MagcBands or cards in the MagicBand section of your Profile. However in this instance, we will need a bit more assistance. As long as the MagicBand or MagicBand+ has never been used, you should be able to get it linked to the appropriate party. If you are at the Walt Disney World Resort, you can visit any Guest Relations location for assistance. If you haven’t arrived yet, you will need to contact Guest Relations. If you click the Call Walt Disney World Resort link here, look for the phone number associated with the “My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagicBand+.” Let the cast member know that you need to link the MagicBand appropriately and they will be more than happy to assist.

    Now, since we are on the topic let's talk about the cool features that come with using MagicBand or MagicBand+. With a simple tap, they become your key to unlocking not only your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room but also the key to unlocking all of the magic in the Theme Parks and Water Parks. From entering the parks to accessing your Disney Genie+ selections, and even the ability to make purchases if you are staying at the Walt Disney World Resort and have linked a credit card to your account, it’s your all-in-one tool for a hassle-free adventure.

    If by chance you have chosen the new MagicBand+, you now can unlock an entire other realm of fun. MagicBand+ has some advanced features that will enhance your Walt Disney World Resort experience. You can expect to immerse yourself deeper into attractions, experience special effects that are often triggered by your movements or entering and exiting attractions, participate in interactive experiences throughout the parks, and even uncover hidden surprises with its unique capabilities. On my last visit with some of my planDisney friends, Betsy’s MagicBand+ lit up while we were visiting France at EPCOT in World Showcase. When we asked what the colors meant, the Cast Member let us know that the colors on the MagicBand+ represented France’s flag. How cool is that?

    I hope that you and your family have the best time on your next adventure.
