    Hi! I planned a trip for March 2019! I will be staying on Disney property! I was wondering if I purchased a Magic Band so I can get a different color, would I still be able to use my one I get for free for booking my trip and the one I purchased? Thanks!

    Hi Courtney!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I'm just loving some of those new MagicBand colors, aren't you?  Now that I own all of the colors that are complimentary with a Disney Resort Hotel stay, I'm thinking I need to add some of the pastel colored MagicBands such as Light Teal or Millennial Pink to my collection.  I have also seen some beautiful embellished MagicBands that some crafty friends have created.  The Black MagicBand would be the perfect blank canvas for a glitzy creation!  You'll even find decals and other embellishments for MagicBands sold through sites such as Etsy.

    I am happy to let you know that you absolutely can use both bands interchangeably. You will simply log into your My Disney Experience account and link the purchased band to your profile by entering the MagicBand ID Number printed on the interior of the band.  You can order a MagicBand online or in the Shop Disney Parks app.  You may also purchase a MagicBand in many shops throughout Walt Disney World Resort.  Once linked, your purchased band will work exactly the same way as the complimentary band you customized for your resort stay.  I often bring several MagicBands with me so I can choose which color I'd like to wear on any given day.  You can see and manage all your MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account.

    I hope that helps!  If you have more questions about linking or using your MagicBands, please visit the Moms Panel again.

    Have a wonderful vacation!
