    If my magic band was linked to someone i didnt want it linked too, can i reassign that magic band to a different person.

    Hello Janell!

    Welcome to planDisney! 

    I'm sorry to tell you that once you link a MagicBand+, MagicBand, or card to a person's My Disney Experience Account, it cannot be transferred to another person. However, there may be a silver lining on this cloud of disappointing news. I have spoken with Disney IT, and they informed me that these situations are reviewed on a case-by-case basis and if the band has not been used yet there is a possibility that they can fix the issue. They asked that you reach out to them at My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagciBand+. If they cannot assist you then know that it's perfectly okay to have multiple bands linked to one person. I found out today that there is technically no limit to how many bands you can link to a specific My Disney Experience Account but Cast Members suggest keeping the number to around 15 or less for optimal function. 

    Another option you can use to enter the Parks and Lightning Lanes is the Disney MagicMobile Service. If you have a smartphone, you can download a ticket into your digital wallet and use that to "tap" into the Parks and Lightning Lane queues. If you have an Apple phone you can even use it while the phone is locked. It's very convenient and a good backup if you ever do not use a band or if you lose it. I recently had an experience where I lost my MagicBand+ but luckily I had a backup one in my Resort room. I was so nervous about losing another one that I used a hair tie to secure it closed and prevent it from snapping open. It worked beautifully! 

    I hope I was able to help and if you have any more questions please free to let me know!

    Happy Planning!
