    I need to reassign a magic band+ which has never been used. My step daughter broke her leg a week before our trip and cant travel. Unfortunately she won't be coming with us on our trip, however my mom will be coming. Can I reassign it to my mom?

    Hey, Jessika!

    I'm so sorry to hear about your stepdaughter's injury. How sad! Hopefully, she'll heal up at lightyear speed and be able to visit Walt Disney World Resort with you in the near future. 

    I was in a similar situation to you a few months ago, Jessika. I had an unused MagicBand+ that was assigned to me, however, I wanted it assigned to my son instead. Here's what I'd recommend you do: If you'd like to reassign a MagicBand+ that has never been used, I would contact Disney using the chat feature on the World Disney World website. If you visit the website and wait for the chat feature to pop up (this might take a few minutes, depending on availability), you can chat with a Cast Member. Let them know you'd like to reassign an unused MagicBand+. They'll likely ask you to fill out an online form in order for them to get access to your My Disney Experience account. From my memory, I believe you'll need to have your mom on your Family & Friends list. Once you do that, the Cast Member should be able to reassign the MagicBand+.

    Hopefully, that's helpful, Jessika. I'm sure you'll have a "practically perfect" time with your mom.  I loved using my MagicBand+ on my most recent trip. It makes it so convenient to enter the parks, scan into Lightning Lanes, link Disney PhotoPass pictures, pay for things, and enter your hotel room. I'm sure you'll love using it too.

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Jessika. TTFN, ta-ta for now.
