    How can I link a magic band that’s already been used? It’s saying this magic band is already connected?

    Hi Christyn, welcome to planDisney!

    You are just a few days away from a magical winter wonderland, also known as Walt Disney World Resort. Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade brings holiday spirit, and snow, to Main Street, U.S.A., during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party. All Magic Kingdom Park Guests can catch this legendary parade at 12:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. on December 23 through December 31.

    Everyone in your party over the age of three requires valid admission, a theme park reservation, and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) to enter a theme park each day. MagicBands are the magical wrist accessories that let you tap into magic at theme park entry, with Disney PhotoPass photographers, at Lightning Lane entrances, and more. MagicBands are also nontransferable once linked to an individual in My Disney Experience, which means you won't be able to link a previously used MagicBand to your account.

    Shifting focus to what you can do, Christyn, you can use your My Disney Experience mobile app to download a Disney MagicMobile pass to the digital wallet of your mobile device. You can also stop by a theme park ticket window to request a complimentary admission card. Admission cards are roughly the size of credit cards, feature beloved Disney characters, and make great souvenirs. Be prepared to show your ticket confirmation email, the credit card used for purchase, and a valid photo ID. If the wish your heart makes is for a MagicBand, you'll find a wide selection of styles at various retail selections throughout the resort; Disney Pin Traders at Disney Springs is my personal favorite. MagicBand+ designs must be linked to a My Disney Experience account, paired with a mobile device, and fully charged before use. 

    I hope this information helps you tap into holiday magic this week, Christyn. PlanDisney is here for you before, during, and after your trip.
