    How can I change a magic band owner?

    Hi Priscila!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I take it by your question that you've visited the Walt Disney World Resort in the last few years and are hoping to make a return trip soon? Definitely check out these most magical special offers, deals and discounts!

    Once a MagicBand has been assigned to and/or used by a Walt Disney World Resort guest, that band is linked to its owner forever. If you're interested in letting someone else borrow this band because they really like the color or it features a special design, there is a way to swap out the center puck that stores the magic connected to each guest. However, this would require that person 2 also have their own MagicBand and insert the puck from band 2 into the original MagicBand in question. To do this, flip each MagicBand over and unscrew the back, swap the two pucks, close up shop, and Bibbidi Bobbidi Boom, you're done!

    Are you planning another visit where you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel? If so each registered guest will actually receive a brand new, complimentary MagicBand. And something new that was introduced last year is that Disney Resort Hotel Guests now have the option to upgrade their complimentary MagicBand to their choice of dozens of designs for a small additional fee. And don't forget there are still many options available for purchase both in person at many locations all around the 'World (well, the Walt Disney World) as well as online at ShopDisney.com.

    I hope this helped, Priscila, and We'll See You Real Soon!
