    How do you reassign an active Magicband to another family member?

    Hi Brittany!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are so incredibly useful when visiting Walt Disney World Resort and my toddler loves his so much, he even wears it when we are home!

    Once a MagicBand has been assigned to an individual inside of My Disney Experience, it unfortunately can not be reassigned to someone else. If you have a family member that is visiting that doesn't have a MagicBand they have a couple different options. If they are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, they should have the option to customize and order their own complimentary MagicBand. If they are staying at an offsite location, they can purchase their own MagicBand either in advance from ShopDisney or at multiple different locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort and connect it through My Disney Experience.

    While MagicBands are useful to have, they certainly are not a requirement for a visiting Guest. If they are not staying on site and do not wish to purchase one, they can receive a hard ticket that will link to their account that can be used for entry, FastPass+ reservations and Disney PhotoPass service

    I hope this helped to answer your question, please let us know if we can help in any other way!
