    The last time I went to Disney World I was under my parents account and bought a magic band and linked it there. I am going again and have my own Disney account, am I able to unlink it from my parents account onto my own account?

    Hi Kaitlin,

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! Having your own My Disney Experience account allows you to make your own theme park plans, like making theme park reservations, joining a Virtual Queue, and Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering through the My Disney Experience mobile app. 

    In order to merge the account managed by your parents with your new account, the parent who managed your account will need to log in to their My Disney Experience account. Your parent should find your account in their Family & Friends List and click “Update” next to your name. Then select “Share Plans with this Guest.” Your parent will be asked for the email address associated with your new My Disney Experience account. After entering your email address, you will receive an email inviting you to share plans with your parent. When you accept, this should combine the information, including your MagicBand, from your old account with your new account. 

    If you need any help completing this process, you can call and speak to a Cast Member at the number listed under “Website Support.”

    There is another option, Kaitlin. You could purchase a new MagicBand+ for your next Walt Disney World Resort visit! There is a vast selection of MagicBand+ designs in merchandise locations throughout the theme parks. You might even see some seasonal designs like the EPCOT International Flower & Garden MagicBand+. 

    I hope this helps you with your MagicBand and My Disney Experience account, Kaitlin. If you have any future questions, come see me again at planDisney!
