    After many trips to Disney, I finally bought my family specialty Magic Bands for our Disney trip next week. We received our normal magic bands weeks ago. My question is, how do you transfer the use the old bands, to the new specialty bands?

    Hey Nicole!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your excellent question about MagicBands! As a MagicBand collector myself, I hope that I can help answer your question thoroughly and to the best of my ability. If you enjoy my answer, please consider visiting us with any other Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning questions you may have. We would really enjoy that!

    I see your arrival date is quickly approaching. I am happy that you are doing such a great job planning your vacation. You will be thrilled to know that you do not need to “transfer” any information from one MagicBand to the other. In fact, you can use both MagicBands interchangeably if you wish to do so. I normally travel with 3-5 MagicBands in order to match them to my different park outfits. I also enjoy purchasing and wearing theme park-specific MagicBands. Every Disney fashionista needs to have options!

    As long as all of the MagicBands you wish to use remain “active” in your My Disney Experience account, they will all share the same entitlements, theme park tickets, FastPass+ selections, and reservations. You never have to transfer entitlements from one MagicBand to the other in order to use it. Please visit the “MagicBands and Cards” section of your Disney Account in order to verify that all of the MagicBands you wish to use are currently active.

    Nicole, if you have any other questions please visit us again. We are always here to help make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning easier!

    Wishing you a Magical Vacation Next Week,
