    Can I switch the personalized tech piece in our magic bands into purchased magic bands? The names of the granddaughters are in the magic bands issued in conjunction with our resort stay and we have now purchased character magic bands that they wish to use

    Hi Donna!  How wonderful that you are bringing your granddaughters back for another visit to Walt Disney World Resort! You must be so excited that your trip is coming up so soon!

    Don't you just love the convenience of MagicBands?  I wish my MagicBands would work for all my daily errands at home.  I'm sure your granddaughters will be thrilled with their new character bands.  I am happy to let you know that no tinkering of the bands will be necessary! You will simply log into your My Disney Experience account and link the purchased bands to each person's profile by entering the MagicBand ID Number printed on the interior of each band. The purchased character bands can be used interchangeably with any active bands, such as those you customized for your resort stay.  Once linked, they will function just like the resort bands to unlock your Resort Hotel room, link to your admission for Theme Park entry, and to use FastPass+. I have been known to bring several bands with me on a trip so I can wear the color or design that suits my mood that day.  If your granddaughters happen to have selected the same character MagicBand, you can tell them apart by the ID Number or marking their name on the inside.

    I hope that helps!  If you have more questions about linking or using your MagicBands, please visit the Moms Panel again.

    Keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for any special events that may be happening during your stay.  Have a wonderful vacation!
