    I have old magic bands from previous trips. Can I link these to my current tickets? Can I give my old bands to family members who don't have magic bands and can they link it to their tickets?

    Hello Lisa, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    I love to collect and reuse MagicBands from previous trips too. In fact, I have been known to bring just about all of them with me on my trips. Any MagicBand that you have used previously is still assigned to your My Disney Experience account. You can use any MagicBand that is listed as active on your account. You can check the status of a MagicBand by clicking on the “MagicBands and Cards” tab. Keep in mind that the battery in a MagicBand is good for a little over 2 years. So, if you have any MagicBands that are older than that, I would not recommend using them. Since they are connected to your My Disney Experience account, you would not want a delay when trying to enter a theme park or redeeming a FastPass+ experience.

    Once a MagicBand has been linked to your My Disney Experience account, it cannot be transferred or assigned to someone else. Any friends or family members that do not have a MagicBand can purchase one online or from the Shop Disney Parks Mobile App. There are dozens of styles to choose from including the standard solid color MagicBand. Your favorite Disney Character, villain or superhero may also have their own special MagicBand. There are also some limited edition MagicBands you can purchase in advance but you will also find some exclusives that can only be purchased in theme parks or Disney Springs. Once you purchase them, they will need to be linked to the My Disney Experience account of the family member that will be using them. I would recommend ordering soon, to allow plenty of time for shipping of your MagicBands.

    See ya real soon,
