    Hi, I want to use my Magicband from our trip last year and not sure how to link it to my reservation for April. Can you help? Also, can I reassign an active MB to another guest on my reservation?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Brenda. 

    I'm so excited for you that you are planning another trip to Walt Disney World. It's such a great place, isn't it? I almost think return trips are even that much more fun because you kind of have an idea of some of your favorite things and it just builds up the anticipation for that trip even more! 

    Brenda, MagicBands are assigned to your person via your MyDisneyExperience account, not a particular trip. So in all actuality, you should be able to just show up and use the same MagicBand from your last trip as long as you didn't deactivate it since the last time you used it. To be sure, let's check and make sure that the MagicBand that you'd like to use is still activated. To do this, log in to your MyDisneyExperience account. Then, hover your cursor over the MyDisneyExperience logo at the top right of your screen. This is going to open up a drop-down menu and from there you'll want to click on the "My MagicBands and Cards" option. Scroll down until your profile with the number of MagicBands listed and click on your character icon. This is going to show you all of your MagicBands that you've used on Walt Disney World vacations. You are going to look for the one you'd like to use in April from your trip last year. If you are seeing the option to "Deactive" that particular band you'll know that it is still set up and good to go. If you are seeing the option to "Activate" that band then go ahead and click that option to basically turn it back on for your upcoming vacation. 

    MagicBands, once linked to a MyDisneyExpereince account, are not transferable from person to person. You won't be able to pass along one of your old MagicBands to someone else to use. If they don't want to purchase a MagicBand, no worries. They can pick up a complimentary Keys To The World card at any ticket window or their Walt Disney World Resort Hotel front desk. The Keys To The World cards have very similar functionality to MagicBands. You are able to link your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel tickets to them and use them as a room key card. The cards have Mickey and the gang on them and they are really cute. I've collected them all! 

    I hope this helps, Brenda. If you have any other questions, please feel free to drop back by and ask me. I'm happy to help! 

    Have a great week.

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
