    Can somebody else use my magic band if my magic pen still works?

    Hey, Kelsey! Welcome to planDisney.

    I'm so glad you stopped by with your question. My planDisney pals and I love nothing more than helping fellow Guests plan their next Walt Disney World Resort trip. I'm sure you're counting down the days until you arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth

    I love using MagicBands when on my Disney vacations. They make it so convenient to enter the parks, scan into Lightning Lanes, link Disney PhotoPass pictures, pay for things, and enter my hotel room. MagicBand+ has the added benefits of haptic vibrations and colorful lights that appear during the nighttime spectaculars. There are tons of great designs to choose from.

    Kelsey, MagicBand devices (both the old MagicBand versions and newer MagicBand+) can only be linked to one Guest. Once they are linked to a particular Guest and used you can no longer re-link the device to a new person. If your MagicBand has never been used, you can probably re-link it to someone else. You'd just have to contact Disney directly and a Cast Member can help you with that process. I've actually re-linked an unused MagicBand+ for my son. You can do this using the chat feature on the Walt Disney World Resort website. However, if you have used your MagicBand, the person you have in mind will have to purchase their own MagicBand. 

    I hope that's clarifying, Kelsey. Please stop by again if you have any more questions.
