    I linked my son’s magic band to my profile how can I switch it over to him?

    Hi there Troy, welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question, I'm thrilled to help! Can you believe your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is right around the corner? You are sure to make awesome memories at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    From the very start of your vacation planning to the final day of your trip, My Disney Experience offers several features to help you make the most of your Walt Disney World vacation! I would suggest having your son create his own My Disney Experience account, if he hasn't already, then adding him to your Friends & Family list. To add your son to your My Disney Experience account, you'll need to first access the Friends and Family list either on the website or via the My Disney Experience app. To add members on the website, hover over "My Disney Experience" then click "My Family & Friends". Next you'll click "Add Guest" and follow the prompts to enter their information. 

    Next, I would suggest connecting your account with the account of your son on his own device. That way you will still be able to access all your plans, including Genie+ and Lightning Lane plans from your own account but still be able to share plans and tickets. I find the easiest way to connect to the accounts of friends and family members is by using your Linking Code. To find your Linking Code, tap on the 3 horizontal lines on the bottom right of the My Disney Experience app. Scroll to the bottom of the screen then under Disney Account, tap “Profile.” Next, tap “Show My Linking Code.” The app will then prompt you with a warning explaining what the linking code is. Once someone scans your Linking Code, you’ll be added to their Friends & Family list. Next tap “Show My Linking Code.” The app will then create a unique linking code. There’s a QR version as well as a manual code that your friends and family can type in.

    If your son wants to scan a linking code to connect to you (or you want to scan his linking code) - tap on the three horizontal lines to the bottom right of the My Disney Experience app. Select “Profile” and then “Friends & Family List.” You’ll then scroll down to where it says “Add a Guest.” Follow the prompts to Scan their Linking Code. You’ll scan their linking code when they have it up on their phone, or you can manually enter the code. That's It!

    Troy, I hope you find this information helpful. Thank you again for visiting planDisney. Have a magical day!
