    My kids are going with their grandparents to WDW and they are going to buy them tickets w/ Florida resident tickets. The kids already have a magic bands from trips with us. We are not Florida residents. Can they tie these new tickets to those bands?

    Hi Jeremy!

    The kids have amazing grandparents! I am sure they are going to have a blast visiting the Walt Disney World Resort! It is possible for the kids to use their MagicBands, but only of the new tickets are linked to the My Disney Experience Account where the kids' profiles were created and the MagicBands were linked. That means that if the grandparents have their own My Disney Experience Account you would have to link the two accounts so that they can make their FastPass+ selections for the kids. You can do this by adding them to your Friends and Family List on you My Disney Experience Account. Something to keep in mind is that if the MagicBand is two years old, the battery within the MagicBand may not work and there is no way to replace the battery.  Some of the first MagicBands I acquired, close to three years ago, have already stopped working.  Also, with so many new MagicBands being released, including a new design, you may want to consider getting the kids new ones. You can view some of these by visiting www.disneystore.com or via the Shop Disney Parks App.

    Did you know?: The Walt Disney World Resort has some great offers on Disney Resort Rooms for Florida Residents! For more information, please visit this page: Special Offers and Deals.
