Mom and Child wearing Magic Bands

    David from OH Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    We have a number of Magic Bands that are not currently active. My sister is taking her family in March and I would like to give a couple of them to her. They are registered to me or someone in my friends and family list. Is this something I am able to do.

    Greetings David! Welcome back to planDisney with your question.

    I love collecting MagicBands, I have over 40 of them and counting. They are a small piece of the magic to hold on to along with all the memories of your magical vacation.

    Unfortunately, MagicBands are not transferable. Once they have been activated to your My Disney Experience account, they can only be reused by you. They cannot be linked to someone else’s My Disney Experience account information.

    You can still gift a MagicBand to members of your sister’s family in a couple of ways. You could purchase MagicBands online at shopDisney for someone. If you know their favorite color, Disney Character, movie, or favorite attraction, you could have them shipped directly to your sister. Once they arrive, she will need to link each MagicBand to its designated user in My Disney Experience. You could also purchase and send Disney Gift cards to your family members and let them pick out the MagicBands of their choice once they arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. MagicBands can be purchased in Disney Resorts Collection hotel retail shops, all four theme parks, and select retail locations in Disney Springs. These MagicBands will need to be linked to their My Disney Experience accounts, but friendly Cast Members are always willing to help link them for you if you require assistance.

    If you are still looking for something to do with your inactive MagicBands, you may try using them linked together in a chain as decoration for the holidays or displayed proudly with your other collectibles.

    If you have any more questions when planning your future vacations, please do not hesitate to come back and visit us again here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
