    Our trip in 2019 my grandson had a different last name can I switch his name on his magic band to the correct last name? I haven’t bought tickets yet.

    Hello Debra, 

    Thank you for visiting planDisney! We are thrilled you've stopped by and even more excited to hear you will be visiting with your grandson this fall. Autumn is my favorite time to visit Walt Disney World Resort. The decorations are just lovely and the whole resort feels extra magical.

    I am assuming that you want to update your grandson's My Disney Experience profile so that he can use his linked MagicBand for your upcoming visit. If that's the case, and if you are the one who manages his profile, before you purchase tickets or make your reservation, you will want to call the My Disney Experience, MagicBand and MagicBand+ helpline so that they can update the profile. If you aren't the one who manages the profile, you will need to have that person call to make the update.

    While we are discussing fall, you will arrive just in time for Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party which typically begins just after Halloween. This special event at Magic Kingdom Park is the perfect way to get into the holiday spirit and celebrate Christmastime. There is a special parade and fireworks, holiday treats, and my favorite--special photo opportunities. Not only are your favorite Disney friends decked out in their holiday finest, but many of the Disney PhotoPass Service photographers have special props or Magic Shots at the party. Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog as they should be announcing party dates and when tickets will be available in the coming months. 

    EPCOT also typically hosts a special event in the fall--the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE®. While dates haven't been released just quite yet, it usually lasts from late summer through part of November. This is perhaps my favorite festival as it takes place in the fall and focuses on delicious dishes from around the world. 

    Have a wonderful time planning your adventure, Debra. If there is anything else we can help you with, please let us know.

    Magical Wishes,
