    daughter has a magic band from a previous trip. we want to use the same band for our trip now. how do i link it to her on this trip specifically? I want it to show in my experience by her name on this trip like ours do that are new when I linked them.

    Hello Christine!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We are so happy that you have decided to stop by and send us another question.

    There is nothing more magical and convenient than visiting the Walt Disney World Resort with a MagicBand. This unique and special wristband is your ticket to the theme parks (when valid theme park admission is linked to it), can be used to redeem your FastPass+ selections, and also links all digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass photographers and at select attractions to your My Disney Experience account. If you are a Guest at a Disney Resort hotel, your MagicBand can also be used to pay for dining, merchandise, and services (with a valid credit card linked to your account), and is also the key to your room.

    Christine, please note that the RFID technology in MagicBands usually lasts for about 2 years, so depending on when you visited last, you might need to purchase a new one for your daughter. If you would like to try linking the MagicBand you have at home, please log in to your My Disney Experience account and make sure that your daughter is included in your My Family and Friends List. Then, select MagicBands and Cards under My Account and at the end of the page click on “Link” and select “MagicBand”. Enter the MagicBand ID number located in the back of the band and link it to your daughter.

    In case you need to buy a new MagicBand, I recommend visiting ShopDisney.com and have one delivered to the comfort of your home. You may also purchase MagicBands at World of Disney and Disney’s Pin Traders stores at Disney Springs or at most merchandise locations at all four theme parks.

    Thank you for stopping by, Christine. I hope this helps you while planning!

    Best magical wishes,
