    We have Magic Bands from a prior visit and now booking for Oct 2020. Not everyone from the first visit is going - can we use the Magic Bands for a different family member? ie: John and Jim went with us previously. Now Tim and Tom are going with us.

    Hi, Brian! 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    MagicBands are indeed an essential part of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and you're absolutely right to plan if you intend to use them. Every MagicBand must be connected to a My Disney Experience account, and it cannot be reassigned once it has been linked to a Guest. 

    If you're staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, the Guests in your party will receive complimentary MagicBands, so there's no need to worry about bringing MagicBands for those who don't have them yet. If you're not staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can still purchase them online at ShopDisney or the Walt Disney World Resort. After buying them, you will be able to connect them to the right Guests so that they can make the most of this truly magical gadget

    You will find many cool styles to match your personalities, and choosing them can become an entertaining family activity! 

    As more questions pop up before your October visit, please, don't hesitate to come back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Brian. We're here for you!

    May the magic be with you,
