    Hi so my in law purchased the entire family’s magic bands. All bands are linked to her account to manage except mine since I hade a My Experience acct. how do I make it so that she can manage my band so we have all of them together.

    Hi Beverly!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney.

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is almost here!  I'll be happy to chat with you about getting everything set up so you are ready to dive right in and enjoy all the magic of the 50th Anniversary celebration.

    You are already on the right track!  A MagicBand is linked to a person's profile, so if you have your own My Disney Experience account, you will link your MagicBand to your profile in your account, and your in-law will link MagicBands to the profiles of the family members she manages in her account.  Each person can then use their MagicBand to access theme park admission linked to their profile, redeem Lightning Lane reservations booked with Disney Genie+ service, and link Disney PhotoPass photos to their account.

    If you'll be planning together, you'll want to connect through Family & Friends in My Disney Experience.  The easiest way to do this is using the My Disney Experience mobile app.  When signed into your account, use the menu button in the lower right corner and scroll to "My Profile", then scroll down to "Show My Linking Code".  Your in-law should log into her account, select "My Profile" and then "Family & Friends List" at the top of the page.  She will scroll to the bottom of the list and choose "Add a Guest" and then "Scan their linking code".  There is also an option to manually enter your code.  Be sure to adjust your sharing settings in your Family & Friends lists so you can both see everyone in your party.  Once connected through Family & Friends, you'll be able to add each other to dining or resort hotel reservations, assign or transfer tickets, and make Lightning Lane reservations for your group with Disney Genie+ service.

    I hope that helps!  If you have any additional questions, please stop by and see us again.  Have a wonderful vacation!
