    Hello! If we have magic bands linked to our profiles, can I deactivate them and assign them to someone else? I bought different bands, but our package came with magic bands and I choose not to decline them. I would like someone in our party to use them.

    Hello, Brenda! Thanks for bringing another great question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When Walt Disney World Resort began issuing MagicBands several years ago, I knew they'd be a game-changer. Now with the ability to unlock your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door, charge purchases to your room, use your Disney Dining Plan credits, redeem your FastPass+ experiences and add Disney's PhotoPass Service photos to your My Disney Experience account, the MagicBand is truly a magical device. Since each of these features is uniquely connected to your personal My Disney Experience account, you cannot re-assign it to others once it's been linked.

    As Annual Passholders, my family and I have the privilege of visiting Walt Disney World Resort several times a year, and we usually end up with new MagicBands for each of our visits. My daughter and I love matching our MagicBands to our outfits and we generally like to wear a different one for each day of our trip.

    If others in your party won't receive a MagicBand with an official Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation, never fear! Anyone may purchase MagicBands from retail locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks and hotels, or may even order them prior to your vacation through or the shopDisney app. In addition to solid colors, you'll find a wide range of MagicBand options sure to fit anyone's tastes. There are even MagicKeepers for those Guests who'd prefer not to wear the wristband!

    Hopefully the other members of your party will be able to find a MagicBand solution to fit their needs. In the meantime, you can coordinate your outfits with your bonus ones!

    Best wishes,
