    Is there any way we can link a magic band to a different account, but for the same person? We are visiting soon and have magic bands link to a different account.

    Hello James! Thank you for stopping by planDisney. You are going to have an amazing time while you enjoy the World’s Most Magical Celebration in less than a month.

    It appears that your final preparations are in order, gathering all your vacation essentials, including MagicBands. This piece of wearable technology is the perfect assistant to accessing all your plans, tickets, and reservations in your My Disney Experience account. They will also allow you to add PhotoPass photos to your Memory Maker account and charge food and merchandise to your room account if you are staying at select Disney Resorts Collection hotels.

    Unfortunately, MagicBands are non-transferrable. Once they have been assigned to a My Disney Experience account, they cannot be reassigned to another, even if the account belongs to the same person. The good news is that you can add new MagicBands to your other account by ordering a pre-arrival priced MagicBand if you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel. You can select from the dozens of designs offered online at shopDisney. Due to shipping time constraints, I would recommend that you order as soon as possible so that your order will arrive in plenty of time before you depart for your trip. You can also purchase a new MagicBand to link to your account when you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. MagicBands are available for purchase at all resort hotels, Disney Theme Parks, and select Disney Springs retail locations. The process to link your new MagicBands only takes a few minutes and a Cast Member would be happy to assist you at the time of purchase.

    If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
