    My Disney Vacation is in a week and a friend is coming with me but she does not have a Magic Band. I have a lot of magic bands that are still active. Can I take them off my name and give them to her? We go to a park together the day after we arrive.

    Welcome to planDisney, Ainsley! Are you so excited about your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort? January is one of my favorite times to visit because of the crisp, cool weather that makes it perfect for days in the Theme Parks and maybe some time at the swimming pool in the afternoon. 

    Ainsley, I'm pleased to tell you that you are more than welcome to transfer the use of one of your MagicBands to your friend for your vacation. In your My Disney Experience account, navigate to "My MagicBands and Cards" where you will find a list of all of your currently active MagicBands. Choose the one you'd like to gift to your friend and click "Deactivate". Your friend will then be able to go to her My Disney Experience account and link that MagicBand using the QR code or 12-character letter and number combination on the back of it. The MagicBand will then be linked to her account and her ticket information, so she can use it to enter the Theme Parks, tap in at Lightning Lanes, and charge purchases to her room if you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. This process is completely reversible, so if you want to reassign your MagicBand back to your account at the end of your trip, just complete all the steps in the reverse order.

    I hope this answers your question, Ainsley, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
