    I purchased a Magic Band + but it seems that it auto assigned to me instead of allowing me to assign it to my daughter. IF this band has not yet been received, is there a way to transfer it?

    Welcome to planDisney, Chris!  We are glad you brought your question to us.

    I was just experimenting with the features of my new MagicBand+ last night!  I had fun testing out the different light-up color themes.  I am a huge fan of the convenience of MagicBands, so I jumped on board when MagicBand+ was released earlier this year.

    Chris, based on the information you described in your question, it sounds like you ordered customized MagicBands through your My Disney Experience account.  Guests with an upcoming stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel are eligible to order discounted MagicBands via My Disney Experience and can select their choice of available styles or choose to decline a MagicBand for each member of their party listed on the reservation.  Customized MagicBands ordered through My Disney Experience are already linked to each individual Guest on the reservation for whom they were selected, and cannot be reassigned.

    If instead, you ordered retail MagicBands online from shopDisney, these do not come pre-assigned and will need to be linked to the appropriate Guests using the ID numbers found on the underside of the band.  MagicBands can be linked to your My Disney Experience account online, or via the My Disney Experience mobile app by using the menu button in the lower right corner to select  "MagicBands and More" and scrolling down to where you see "Link Your MagicBand or Card".  During the linking process, you will be asked to select which Guest from your Family & Friends List you would like to assign the band to.

    Chris, if you have any additional questions please do not hesitate to stop by planDisney again anytime.  We are always happy to help.  You can also reach out to the My Disney Experience tech team at (407) 939-4357.
