    I have a Magic Band I used during my visit in 2019. I recently booked another trip and wanted to use that same band to link my booking/reservations, etc. When I try to link it this message shows up: “we cannot link this band. It has been claimed “

    Hi Daniel! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I love getting a new MagicBand for every trip to Walt Disney World Resort, but I do have a few I like to reuse because the designs are just so cute! 

    You should be able to view your previously linked MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account. If you are on the website, go to the “My MagicBands and Cards” section and scroll down to “Manage MagicBands or Cards.” Here you will find a list of your previously linked MagicBands and activate or deactivate them as you need. 

    If you are on the My Disney Experience mobile app, click on the three horizontal bars in the bottom right of the screen and find the “MagicBands and More” tile. This section will also show you any MagicBand+, MagicBands, and Admission Cards linked to your account. 

    If you have any difficulties finding or activating your MagicBand, I suggest you call the number listed under “My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagicBand+” for assistance from a Cast Member. I recommend having your MagicBand handy to reference the ID number on the back of the band. 

    While you’re in Walt Disney World Resort, take a moment to stop in a merchandise location to check out the new MagicBand+! They also have some cool designs available (like the Iron Man design that features the light up arc reactor!), and they interact with the park around you through lights and haptic buzzes. 

    I hope this helps you prepare for your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort! If you have any more planning questions, visit me again at planDisney!
