    My sister has a duplicate of a Magic band and wants to give it to me. Can we unlink it from her account and link it to mine?

    Greetings and welcome to planDisney, Barbara!

    Just like a true Fairy Godmother, your sister is sprinkling you with some pixie dust by kindly offering you one of her MagicBands ahead of your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Although this is a magical gesture, once a MagicBand has been linked to an account, it cannot be transferred to another Guest. This all-in-one device is unique to the person it is linked to, and only this Guest is authorized to access the benefits associated with it. 

    However, you are welcome to purchase a MagicBand online at shopDisney.com ahead of your visit or at most merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World upon arrival. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel you will receive a complimentary solid color MagicBand, but you will be given the option of purchasing MagicBands in advance.

    planDisney tip: complimentary MagicBands will no longer be provided for Guests arriving for a stay at a Disney Resort hotel beginning January 1, 2021. Guests who do not wish to purchase a MagicBand will be able to use the My Disney Experience app on their mobile device instead. 

    Thank you for sending a question our way! I hope this helps you while planning and that you come back to visit us real soon! 

    Best magical wishes,
