    I have a Magic Band I used a couple years ago. It is linked to an account my partner had, but I wanted to link the band to my own Disney account. can I do that?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Daniel. Thanks for stopping by with your question. I see that you have a trip to the Most Magical Place On Earth coming up in just a few short months. I bet you are getting so excited! 

    Daniel, while you can use MagicBands from past trips they are not transferable from person to person. If it was linked to you originally, it will be in your MyDisneyExperience account. You should be able to see it if you log in to your account and then go to the "My MagicBands & Cards" section. You'll scroll down until you see your profile, click on it and it should open up all of your past and present MagicBands. However, if you don't see and it was linked to your partner originally, you can't reassign it to yourself now. 

    You can always purchase a new MagicBand when you arrive at Walt Disney World, Daniel. They can be found at almost every merchandise location through the Walt Disney World Theme Parks and the Walt Disney World Resort Hotels. Linking your new MagicBand is easy. You'll find directions directly on the back of the MagicBand packaging. If you don't want to purchase a new MagicBand however, you can always grab a complimentary Keys to The World Card from the front desk of your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. The cards are actually really cute with designs of Mickey and his friends on them. I've collected them all over time. 

    You can also do everything that a MagicBand can do through the MyDisneyExperience mobile app on your smartphone device. If you don't already have that downloaded, I highly encourage you to do it before your trip. You can open your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door, use your tickets to enter a Walt Disney World Theme Park, and even Mobile Order food while you are there. It's great! 

    I hope this helps, Daniel. If you have any other questions about your MagicBand or anything else, I'd love for you to stop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help. 

    Enjoy your week!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
