    I just ordered Magic Bands+. Can I connect my daughter's to her phone but still manage it? I'd like her to be able to play the games associated with it but will it still be linked to our account and can I be in charge of it?

    Hiya, Jennifer! The countdown clock on your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is down to single digits! So exciting!

    I'm glad you came to planDisney with this question before your trip. When my son got a MagicBand+, we were trying to figure this out while standing in line for Gran Fiesta Tour. I missed most of the ride with my favorite angry bird, trying to confirm e-mail addresses.

    If you are hoping your daughter can use her new MagicBand+ to enjoy all the interactive games on the Play Disney Parks app, this is easy to do. Play Disney Parks is different from the My Disney Experience App. You can download the Play Disney app to your child's cell phone and create a Play Disney Parks account for her. If your child is under the age of 13, you will need to grant permission to create an account.

    • Download the app on her phone.
    • Open the app and select the Mickey Mouse icon on the top of the screen.
    • Tap "Sign In" and "Create an Account."
    • Enter your child's birthdate and hit "Continue."
    • Enter your child's first name, desired username, your e-mail, and a password. Hit "Create Account."
    • An e-mail will be sent to you with information on how to approve (or deny) the request for an account if your child is under 13. 
    This will not impact how she is set up on your My Disney Experience account or how you manage the vacation details for your family. But she can use her phone to collect the statues in the Disney Fab 50 Quest and become a Bounty Hunter in Batuu. I can't wait to get back to EPCOT and unlock the DuckTales World Showcase Adventure. The MagicBand+ unlocks so much pizzazz in the parks with the Play Disney Parks app. She is going to love it!

    Please come back to planDisney with any other questions. We are happy to help!

    Adventure is out there!
