    Hi I have a friend who gifted me a MagicBand+ that they previously used. If I were to factory reset it could my sister then use it for our trip? It’s the only one she really likes.

    Welcome to planDisney, Fallan, and thanks for this great question! And how exciting to be going to the Most Magical Place on Earth with your sister. I'm an only child, but I've visited with my sisters-in-law many times, and those sister trips are among my absolute favorites. Let's discuss the fabulous new MagicBand+ and how it can add pixie dust to your upcoming visit.

    Fallan, I double-checked with a glowing Cast Member who said that once a MagicBand+ has been linked and used by a guest, it cannot be reassigned. So your sister could not use that particular MagicBand+ on this trip. But if she loves the design, she should still wear it and enjoy the look! If she decides to purchase her own MagicBand, she can wear one on each wrist for a doubly festive day. And she can choose and customize the new band with her name. I'm all about the accessories, Fallon! I always ensure my band matches my outfit, so I may or may not have every color in the rainbow.

    My husband and I have enjoyed discovering the perks of MagicBand+ on our recent visits. They give you a friendly tap to let you know there's an interactive statue or experience nearby, and they choose the most magical times to glow and blink. But my favorite feature is that they are rechargeable and better for the planet. Here's a tip: If you forget to charge your MagicBand+, it will still be a key to your Disney Resort Hotel, your Theme Park Ticket, and your way to access the Lightning Lanes you've booked. The charging feature mainly allows the haptics and lights to work, and be sure to charge it if you plan to do any bounty hunting in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios. 

    I'm sending pixie dust and sparkling lights so your upcoming visit will beat the "band!" Please stop by planDisney anytime, Fallon!

    Magic awaits,
