    Hello! We are planning to visit DCA just for the day. Our MagicBand+ are on my MIL's disney account. Can we move our MagicBand+ to my account or can we use hers even if she is not going with us for the day?

    Hello, Nicholas! 

    Thanks for bringing your question to us here at planDisney. I’m happy to hear you’ve got a Disneyland Resort trip coming up soon, especially if this will be your first visit! It's the perfect time to spend time exploring Disney California Adventure Park as Pixar Fest is in full swing! 

    It would be best to link the MagicBand+ bands to your own account so you can manage them and assign theme park admission to each one for use during your visit. First, ask your mother-in-law to unlink the bands from her account so you’ll be able to link them. Be sure each MagicBand+ is fully charged, and then power them on by pressing the button on the back one time. Tap a band to the back of your smartphone and you should be prompted to open or download the Disneyland mobile app. If you already have the app, be sure it is updated to the latest version. From the app’s ☰ feature menu, scroll down and tap the MagicBand+ option (located under the “Account” heading). Tap the “+” symbol at the top right and follow the on-screen prompts to link each MagicBand+ to your MyDisney account, assign them to a linked theme park ticket, and pair them to your smartphone. 

    I hope this information helps, but if you have any issues, you're welcome to visit a Guest Relations location at the Disneyland Resort to get assistance from a Cast Member. Please feel free to write back with any other questions you may have before your pixie-dusted adventure begins!

    Wishing you magic,
