    Can I give my parents one of my magic bands to use for there resort door only

    Hi Christine,

    Thank you so much for visiting planDisney with your question. I love that you are supporting your parents in their vacation at Walt Disney World!

    The MagicBand that is used to open a resort room door needs to be attached to one of the guests staying in that resort hotel room. So, if you are on the resort reservation with your parents and you need to lend them a MagicBand to get back into the room, that would work. I have more than once had to grab my husband's MagicBand to get back into my room when returning from the swimming pool when I have forgotten mine! However, generally speaking, you cannot reassign a MagicBand.

    You do of course have the option of purchasing a MagicBand or MagicBand+ for your parents. The link that I just provided has a comparison of these two options, as well as Disney MagicMobile Service, which allows guests to unlock their resort hotel room door using the My Disney Experience App.

    My family does enjoy each having our own MagicBand. It makes it so easy to access our resort hotel rooms, enter theme parks, and make purchases. Having a MagicBand on my wrist really makes me feel like I am on vacation!

    I hope that these thoughts are helpful for you, Christine. Please feel free to come back to planDisney if you have any further questions!
