    We are treating my son and his girlfriend to a trip with us, and I booked two rooms (one for them and one for us), tickets, and made park reservations. They went to WDW last year, so how do I link the new package to their old accounts and Magic Bands?

    Hi Zarina, welcome to planDisney!

    This world needs more moms like you. I appreciate your desire to create magical memories for your family. There's no better place to do that than Walt Disney World Resort and there's no better time to do it than during The World's Most Magical Celebration!

    Using my Great Mouse Detective skills, I've deduced that during the process of linking all of your vacation entitlements to My Disney Experience, you created profiles for your son and his girlfriend that are currently managed under your account. Please confirm this by accessing your Family and Friends list. If my theory's correct, you will see the words "Plans managed by me" next to their names. All good things, all good things. Now we can proceed with merging these newly created profiles with their previously created accounts as follows: 

    1. Click "Update" next to your son's name on your Family and Friends list.
    2. Click "Share Planning with <<son's name>> 
    3. Enter the email address associated with your son's My Disney Experience account and click "Continue."
    4. Repeat steps 1-3 for his girlfriend.

    Once your son and his girlfriend accept the email invitation to connect, all of the plans you made for them will automagically transfer to their accounts. This includes previously linked MagicBands. Since you'll still be connected as Family and Friends, you can continue to plan together, this just gives them eyes and ownership of the planning process, as well. 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney. Please return with any other trip-planning questions.

    Choose magic,
