    Going in Nov 3 guests, 2 have magic bands how do I activate them without going to Disney Springs? 1 in our party doesn't have a band can I transfer one of my other bands to her? Thank you,

    Hi Mary,

    I'm so glad you stopped by planDisney today! Planning ahead for your November visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth not only means that you'll have plenty of time to put together the perfect itinerary, but you'll also be able to smile and think happy thoughts about all of the fun you'll have on vacation for many months! Hooray!

    You'll be happy to hear that you don't need to do anything special to activate your MagicBands other than make sure they're linked to the correct person within My Disney Experience and marked as "Active" in your account, which should happen automagically. MagicBands really are easy peasy to use and a fantastic way to show your Disney style!

    As far as the Mouseketeer in your party who doesn't have her own MagicBand, she won't be able to use one of yours because it will have all of your data linked to it, and MagicBands cannot be transferred. She would need to purchase her own MagicBand either at shopDisney ahead of time or at one of many retail locations that sell MagicBands within Walt Disney World Resort once you arrive. Or have you heard that Disney is rolling out something new later this year called Disney MagicMobile service? I'd encourage you to keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for more information and time frame updates. It's possible that all of you will be able to use this exciting new service during your visit!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Mary, and please feel free to come back again with any other Disney-planning questions you may have. I hope you have a truly magical vacation this November!
