    We purchased Magicbands for the kids, linked them, but have not visited the park yet. We just purchased my husbands, and now my 6-year-old is begging to use that one. Is it possible to switch users? If we deactivate his, can it then be linked to my husband

    Hi Shawanda, welcome to planDisney!

    Your family will be tapping into the magic of Walt Disney World Resort real soon - literally! You'll tap your MagicBands at theme park entry, at Lightning Lane entrances, and with Disney PhotoPass photographers. MagicBand+ designs even come to life during nighttime spectaculars; it's like having a firework on your wrist!

    If the MagicBand you purchased for your husband has not yet been linked to his My Disney Experience account, it can still be linked to your 6-year-old's account profile. I have a few active MagicBands linked to my account, which I use interchangeably on my Disney vacations. Your husband can purchase a new MagicBand or use an alternate method of entry (Disney MagicMobile pass or admission card).

    The bad news is, MagicBands are nontransferable once linked to a My Disney Experience account. If you would like the MagicBand linked to your 6-year-old to be transferred to your husband's account and/or vice versa, my best tip is to connect with a helpful Cast Member at the My Disney Experience, MagicBand, and MagicBand+ number. Explain your unique situation and perhaps the dream that you wish can come true with a little technical pixie dust. 

    MagicBand+ designs must be linked, paired with a mobile device, and fully charged before use. I recommend packing a charging cord and portable charger in your park bag, just in case a mid-day charge is needed. 

    You asked an important planning question today, Shawanda. Please don't hesitate to reach out to planDisney with additional trip-planning questions.
