    I purchased MagicBand+ for some friends as part of the pre arrival offer. In the Disney Experience app it shows their bands under guest managed by me. Will I be able to get these bands assigned to them so that they will be able to pair with their phones?

    Welcome to planDisney, Terry!

    When it comes to planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, you've got a friend in planDisney. Your travel party has a friend in you, as well. It was awfully nice of you to take advantage of the pre-arrival price for Disney Resorts Collection hotel Guests and order MagicBand+ for your friends. 

    Thank you for explaining your situation so clearly. I understand your friends' MagicBand+ are linked to My Disney Experience account profiles managed by your account. It also sounds like your friends have or would like to have their own My Disney Experience accounts and will be using their My Disney Experience mobile apps during your visit. Here are the important steps needed to merge your friends' accounts with the account profiles housed under your account:

    1. Click "Update" next to a friend's name on your Family and Friends List.
    2. Click "Share Planning with [friend's name.]"
    3. Enter the email address associated with your friend's My Disney Experience account and click "Continue." If your friend does not yet have their own My Disney Experience account, they should create one before proceeding to step 4.
    4. Ask your friend to accept the email invitation to connect. Once your friend accepts the invitation, all of their vacation entitlements housed under your account (including their MagicBand+) will transfer to their account. You will remain connected as Family and Friends, which means you can continue to view and make plans for each other.
    5. Repeat steps 1-4 for additional friends.

    Your pre-ordered MagicBand+ will arrive linked to everyone in My Disney Experience, but they must also be charged and paired to a mobile device before use.

    Please don't hesitate to reach out to me directly with any follow-up questions, Terry. Let's stick together and see it through!

    Choose magic,
