    Hi! I have a MagicBand+ already paired to my old iPhone. I got a new iPhone and would like to pair the MagicBand+ to it. The MDE app won’t let me because the Magicband+ is already paired to my old iPhone. Is there a way to unpair the Magicband+? Thanks!

    ¡Hola Dharma!

    Bienvenida a planDisney! My family and I are huge fans of Disney MagicBands and have utilized them since their introduction to Walt Disney World Resort Guests. It is an extremely convenient way to pay for items within the stores, enter the theme parks and open your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room. Not to mention the fact that they come in so many different styles, we can customize them for each member of our party.

    With the introduction of MagicBand+, Guests can interact with the Fab 50 characters and be stunned when their MagicBand+ comes ‘alive’ during the fireworks spectaculars at both Magic Kingdom and EPCOT. Pairing your MagicBand+ is fairly easy, however when switching phones, you may need to pair it again. You can power your MB+ off by holding the button located on the back for approximately six seconds. Your MB+ will vibrate and will turn red prior to powering off. Then you can hold the back button for one second to power it on again. It should then detect your phone and pair.  If that does not work, you may need to factory reset your MB+. This is done by pressing the button on the back and holding it for roughly 15 seconds. You should feel a vibration pattern of one vibration, then two, followed by one more, with the MB+ then turning green to indicate it has been reset. You can then pair it with your My Disney Experience account and begin your adventure.

    I hope this helps you plan a most magical vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. Be sure to visit us at planDisney en español for any future Disney vacation planning advice!
