    My granddaughter's Magic Band was linked to my account in 2014. Is there a way to link it to her mother's account?

    Hi Peggy, welcome to planDisney!

    As a member of a multigenerational Disney family, I love hearing that the kids and kids at heart in your family enjoy visiting Walt Disney World Resort. I have my grandmother to thank for introducing me to Disney magic and it sounds like you and your granddaughter share some similarly special memories.

    Valid admission, a theme park reservation, and a method of entry (MagicBand, MagicBand+, Disney MagicMobile pass, or admission card) are currently required for theme park entry. MagicBands are nontransferrable, which means they cannot be reassigned to another person once linked. I know this is not the answer you hoped for, Peggy. The average battery life of a MagicBand is two or three years, though, which means a MagicBand linked in 2014 would likely not work, anyways.
    If the idea of using hands-free technology to tap in at theme park entry and Lightning Lane entrances is appealing, the mother can purchase a MagicBand+ online or at various retail shops on property. Thanks to the carousel of progress, MagicBand+ designs are rechargeable and interact with nighttime spectaculars like Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios. I also like using the My Disney Experience mobile app to download a Disney MagicMobile pass, which essentially turns my Apple Watch into a MagicBand.

    I hope your family has a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Please return to planDisney with any other trip-planning questions.
