    Can a magic band be transferred to a child on the same account. My daughters band is linked under my name and not hers, can I fix this?

    Hello David!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thank you for visiting us with your Walt Disney World Resort question. I am thrilled to help you out.

    The answer to your question depends on a few specifics of your situation. If you manage your daughter's account and her MagicBand was accidentally linked to you instead of her, then you may not be able to fix it, as according to the Walt Disney World Resort MagicBand FAQ: "Once a MagicBand+, MagicBand or card is linked to your Disney account, it cannot be transferred to another person for use at the Walt Disney World Resort."  Now, if you used to manage your daughter's My Disney Experience account and she is now old enough to have her own My Disney Experience account, you can transfer the entitlements, including the MagicBand, to her new profile. 

    You can also call the My Disney Experience, MagicBand and MagicBand+ helpline, as they should be able to pull up your account and take a look directly at your profile. If you are able to transfer it, they will be able to walk you through it and if not, they can provide recommendations or alternatives. There are always new MagicBands available online for purchase if you need to get your daughter a new one.

    Thank you again for visiting planDisney, David. I am hoping you get your MagicBand dilemma all sorted out and are back to planning your next visit soon. If you have any other questions, please let us know.

    Magical Wishes,
