    Good morning, I just created my own Disney experience account and would like some help assigning a previously linked magic band from my wife’s account to mine for our upcoming vacation.

    Hey there, Lance!

    Thanks for visiting us here at planDisney! I hope you're getting ready for your fun-filled visit to Walt Disney World Resort. 

    There's a lot I love about MagicBands and how cool and convenient they are for making a Walt Disney World Resort vacation easier to manage. Typically, I can offer some great tips to help with questions about using MagicBands just based on my own use over many trips and my family's growing collection. In your case, I can't quite tell if the MagicBand you are wanting to link to your new My Disney Experience account was assigned to you when it was previously linked to your wife's My Disney Experience account, or whether it was assigned to your wife. Generally, a MagicBand cannot be reassigned to someone else once it is linked to a Guest's My Disney Experience account. If the MagicBand was assigned to you under your wife's account, and now you would like it assigned to you under your new account, that's a bit of a different scenario. My best suggestion for you to get help with your specific situation is to reach out to the Walt Disney World Internet Help Desk team by calling them at (407) 939-4357. The friendly experts on the Internet Help Desk team can give you the best guidance.

    I'll also mention quickly that if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you can pick up a Key to the World card at your Resort's Front Desk and use it as an alternative to a MagicBand. I also highly recommend the My Disney Experience mobile app as a super useful tool to manage your everyday Walt Disney World Resort vacation plans.

    One last quick tip: be sure to make your theme park reservations through the Disney Park Pass system for the days you want to visit the theme parks.

    Lance, I hope this info is helpful as you count down your days to arriving at Walt Disney World Resort! Enjoy all the fun!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
