    Hello, I went to DisneyWorld with my family and would like to transfer my magic bands to a friend. It's environmental to re-use them after all! Can I do that and if so how do I do that? I notice that in my mydisney account I can deactivate my bands.

    Hi Nadya!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   Thanks for stopping by to ask a great question about a wonderful option Guests staying at Walt Disney World can use during a vacation,  the MagicBand.  It's my pleasure to help you out today.

    MagicBands serve many purposes for Guests visiting Walt Disney World.   They can be used to enter theme parks and water parks (with a valid admission linked.)  Check in at FastPass+ attractions, connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account and even unlock your hotel room door if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel.   I can see why your friend would want to use one.   Unfortunately, transferring a MagicBand to a friend is not allowed.   Once a MagicBand is linked to a Guest in their My Disney Experience account it can not be transferred to another person.   You can disable your MagicBand as you have found out.  I often bring multiple colored MagicBands on trips with me and will deactivate any I leave at home to avoid confusion.   

    I hope this has helped to answer your question.  Please let us know how we can be of assistance to you in the future.  Lending a hand to a fellow Guest is what Disney Parks Moms Panelists enjoy most.
