    Can I link someone else’s old magic band to my account?

    Welcome to planDisney, Donna!  We are glad you stopped by with your question today.

    I love the convenience of MagicBands!  They are my favorite vacation accessory.  MagicBands make it so easy to access theme park admission, link Disney PhotoPass photos to your account, unlock the door to your Disney Resort Hotel room, and more.  Guests staying at Disney Resorts Collection hotels can even use their MagicBands to charge purchases to their room folio.  I always joke that I wish I could have a MagicBand at home to unlock the door to my house and pay for things like groceries!

    Once a MagicBand has been linked to a person's profile, it remains linked to them and can be reused in the future with any new tickets or reservations linked to that account.  A MagicBand cannot be reassigned to a different person.  If you would like to use a MagicBand on your upcoming visit, you'll find them for sale in many merchandise locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  It will just take a few moments to link a new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account.

    Another option would be Disney MagicMobile service.  Guests can create a digital Disney MagicMobile pass via the My Disney Experience mobile app and save it to the digital wallet on their device.  A Disney MagicMobile pass will work much like a MagicBand for theme park admission, entrance to Lightning Lane attractions booked with Disney Genie+ service, and linking Disney PhotoPass photos.  I have used both MagicBands and Disney MagicMobile service, and personally, I prefer the convenience of wearing a MagicBand on my wrist rather than using my phone.

    Donna, if you have any additional questions, please feel free to visit us here at planDisney again anytime.  We are always happy to help.
