    Can my kids switch magic bands, I’ve ordered them already and they are on the way

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Crystal! I'm excited to see that you have a vacation planned for this October to the most magical place on earth. It's such a fun and festive time to visit. Have you heard about the all-new Boo Bash that is taking place on select nights this fall? It's a special Halloween - themed party at Magic Kingdom Park. There is going to be trick-or-treating, special character appearances, Halloween-inspired cavalcades and so much more. I'm really looking forward to this after-hours party and you might really enjoy it, too! 

    Crystal, if your MagicBands are already on their way there would not be a way to intercept them in the mail and switch them out. You can, however, link different MagicBands to your kids MyDisneyExperience accounts. If you want to purchase new MagicBands for your kids before your trip, you can find a selection over on ShopDisney.com. If you'd like to have an even bigger selection for your kids to choose from, I'd recommend waiting until you arrive at Walt Disney World. Pretty much every souvenir shop and kiosks have MagicBands to choose from. After you've purchased a new one, it's pretty easy to link it to a MyDisneyExperience account. You'll simply open up your MyDisneyExperience app on your mobile device. You'll then open up the menu bar by tapping the three horizontal buttons on the bottom right-hand corner of your screen. Scroll down until you see the option for "My Profile" and select that. Then, select the "MagicBands & Cards option". From there you'll see the option to "Link a MagicBand or Card" and the prompts will walk you through the rest of the steps. It's easy peasy from there. 

    I hope this helps, Crystal. If you have any other questions before your trip please feel free to come back and ask me. I'm here to help! Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
