    i have magic bands on my account for 4 Family members. They are all active and have been used recently. They are now travelling without me using their own account. How can they link the bands to their own account?

    Hi Carol, welcome back to planDisney!

    Your family's fall visit to Walt Disney World Resort aligns with the delicious EPCOT International Food and Wine Festival. Festival sips and bites pair nicely with a ride through Gusteau's kitchen on Remy's Ratatouille Adventure. My son recently brought home a "Bump and Go" ride vehicle souvenir that allows us to recreate Disney magic in our own kitchen. I only wish toy Remy could cook dinner for me!

    MagicBands are my favorite in-park accessory. These fashionable wristbands allow you to tap into magic at park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, and Disney PhotoPass locations. I understand there are MagicBands linked to My Disney Experience profiles managed under your account and that at least one of those individuals now has their own My Disney Experience account. MagicBands are nontransferable once linked to an individual in My Disney Experience, which means you must merge the My Disney Experience profile you created with the account they created in order for them to use their previously linked MagicBands. Here are the steps to merge these accounts online:

    1. Log into your My Disney Experience account to access your Family and Friends list
    2. Click "Update" next to one of the family members that now has their own My Disney Experience account.
    3. Click "Share Planning with [name]."
    4. Enter the email address associated with that person's My Disney Experience account and click "Continue."
    5. Have that person check their email and accept the invitation to connect. Once accepted, all of their vacation entitlements housed in your account will automagically transfer to their account. This includes their MagicBand. You will remain connected as Family and Friends for future trips.

    If not all members of your family created their own accounts, Carol, you'll need a Cast Member's assistance to merge the two profiles that are managed under separate accounts. 

    I hope this is helpful information, Carol. Your family has plenty of time before their visit to get all of their [Donald] ducks in a row. When you're ready to plan your next Disney adventure, planDisney will be waiting!
