    We have child magicbands from our last vacation...but my kids are all grown teenagers now! Is there a way to exchange to an adult band? Or would we need to purchase all new ones?? Thanks :)

    Jambo, Jessica, and welcome to planDisney!

    I love that your family is returning to The Most Magical Place on Earth after all these years to make a new set of core memories together. Can you believe that’s just days away? I’m sure your momma heart will be overcome with nostalgia as you walk around and reminisce on when your teens were still little Mouseketeers enamored with Mickey Mouse and Disney Princesses, but there are equally special memories to be made with them now. In fact, there’s a whole page dedicated to planning a trip with teens that might help when planning out your days. It would be a good resource to peruse before your arrival.

    Unfortunately, you cannot exchange your teens’ old child-sized MagicBands for adult-sized MagicBands when you arrive. This means you will indeed have to purchase new MagicBands for them from a gift shop in your Disney Resorts Collection hotel or in the theme parks. Most merchandise locations have an assortment of MagicBands and MagicBand+ devices available for purchase, so you will have plenty to choose from. My favorite places to purchase MagicBands are the Emporium in Magic Kingdom Park and Pin Traders - Camera Center in EPCOT. Once you’ve purchased their MagicBands, make sure you link their MagicBands properly in your My Disney Experience account so they are ready to use.

    Jessica, I know you were hoping for better news, but this just means your teens get to choose a MagicBand that reflects their current Disney side. If you think of anything else we can help with, don’t hesitate to stop by planDisney again. Enjoy your trip, and say hi to Mickey for me!

    See ya real soon,
