    We have several magic bands from previous trips. My son is going to be going to DisneyWorld with his family. Can our old bands be cleared of our info and updated with his for them to use?

    Hey there, Stephen.

    Welcome to planDisney! There’s nothing better than having a vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth on the horizon, so I’m glad to hear your son has a trip in the works. It’s so kind of you to want to pass your MagicBands along to him to use, but that is, unfortunately, not possible. Once a MagicBand is linked to an individual, it is permanently linked to them and cannot be transferred to another person to use.

    The good news is your son can purchase a MagicBand or the new MagicBand+ ahead of his trip on shopDisney or, if he is staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, online in his My Disney Experience account. Since shipping can take a while, he should make his purchase as soon as possible to receive them in time for his trip. Alternatively, he can purchase a MagicBand or MagicBand+ from a merchandise location once he arrives on property and link it to his account.

    I hope this information proves helpful, Stephen. Please stop by again with any other questions you have.

    Have a magical day,
