    My son Will be traveling with another family on a trip. How can I transfer his magic band over to their trip! When they input his magic band ID it says it is already linked. Thank you !

    Hello Christina, and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting for your son to visit the Walt Disney World Resort with friends. He is going to have an amazing time, especially since he will be able to enjoy the 50th Anniversary Celebration!

    The easiest way for your son to be included on another family’s trip is by linking his My Disney Experience account to their “My Family and Friends” list. Once a MagicBand is linked to an account, it cannot be transferred or linked to another account.

    Your son’s information is connected to his My Disney Experience account and accessed by his MagicBand. If your son is over 13 and manages his own My Disney Experience account online or in the mobile app, he can connect his friends to his account by allowing them to scan his QR code to link to his friends and family. To generate a code, open the app and tap the more icon in the lower right corner. Scroll down to My Profile and select Show My Linking Code. When someone scans his code, he will be added to their Family and Friends list. They will be able to share and include him in their plans. Including Disney Park Pass reservations and Genie+ selections.

    If your son is under 13 a parent or guardian must manage his account. You will need to send a request to join your “My Family & Friends” list with the person who is making plans for your friend’s family. Once they accept, share your plans with them and they should be able to see your son on your list. If they cannot see him on your list, you may need the help of a Cast Member on the My Disney Experience and MagicBands team by calling (407) 939-4357. Be sure to share your son’s PhotoPass Photos too, if your friend purchases the Memory Maker option, they will be able to download and share with you any photos your son captures with his MagicBand during on-ride photos and with PhotoPass photographers.

    I hope your son has an amazing time. If you or his friends have any more questions please come back and visit us here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,

Hi there, I am Andrea from the Buckeye State. A very proud mom to my princess who is a former Miss Ohio. Friends and family describe me as a "Disney Nerd" and Star Wars fangirl. I have made 30 trips and counting to the Walt Disney World Resort in all stages of life since 1972 as a small child, a young mom with a toddler and now as an empty nester. The love of vacation planning runs strong in my family. My uncle had it, I have it and with my help, you will have it too. Learn More About Andrea
