    If you have an active MagicBand under one account how do you activate it (for the same person) on a different account? They created their own account, but their old MagicBand is linked to an old family one.

    Hi Taylor! Welcome to planDisney!

    It sounds like at least part of your traveling party is returning to the Most Magical Place on Earth for another visit! The great thing about vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort is that whether this is your first visit or your 50th, there is something new to discover and special memories to be made!

    I love MagicBands because of their convenience, but also their cute designs! Every visit, I see another one that I want! But I also love reusing my favorites. Unfortunately, once MagicBands and linked to a My Disney Experience account and used, they cannot be transferred to another account. You can always try calling Disney directly at (407) 939-4357 and speaking with a Cast Member about a transfer since it is the same person, but in my experience, they can't be transferred.

    If you don't want to purchase a new MagicBand, you can either use an admission card as the ticket (you can pick this up at any Walt Disney World theme park ticket booth or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs) or create a Disney MagicMobile pass on your phone to use instead. Both of these options are complimentary and super easy!

    I hope this helps, Taylor! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
