    My son’s magic bands were registered on my Disney experience account. He now has his own account how do I get the magic band + on to his account

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Margaret!

    Thanks for stopping by with a wonderful Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! It looks like your family will be visiting The Most Magical Place on Earth very soon. The countdown is almost over! You've come to the right place. I'm here to help your club of Mouseketeers prepare for a fabulous Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Margaret, as a fellow Midwesterner, I'm thrilled you'll soon have the opportunity to trade dull mid-winter views for blue skies and sunshine. Did you know your family will be visiting during the final week of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts? Be sure to check out the amazing culinary offerings at the Food Studios throughout the theme park while you can! Now, it sounds like you previously managed a My Disney Experience account on behalf of your son, and he recently created his own profile. Margaret, MagicBands cannot be reassigned once linked to a My Disney Experience profile. However, in some cases, Cast Members may be able to facilitate the transfer of MagicBand ownership between two profiles by "merging" the accounts into a single profile. To check whether your son's duplicate accounts would be eligible for this type of transfer, you can reach out to the Help Desk Cast Members via the chat function on the Walt Disney World Resort website or in the My Disney Experience mobile app. If your family is already on-site at The Most Magical Place on Earth, the friendly Cast Members at any Guest Relations location at the theme parks or Disney Springs could assist with this as well!

    If you prefer not to waste any time chatting about this matter (after all, you have packing to do, right!?), your son could always purchase a new MagicBand or MagicBand+ once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. You'll find these handy bands available for purchase at countless merchandise locations throughout the resort! Just be sure to link, pair, and fully charge any MagicBand+ overnight before using it in the theme parks in order to maximize its pixie-dusted power.

    I hope you've found this information helpful as you continue to gear up for a wonder-filled Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Margaret. If you have any additional last-minute planning questions, you're always welcome to revisit us here at planDisney! We're here to help your family make the most of its time at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    See ya real soon,
