    I am trying to link a magic band a family member to use while me and my daughter are at Disney. How can I do this I am linked to my family members account under family and friends ?

    Hi Elizabeth, thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! 

    There are so many design options for MagicBand and MagicBand+, I have definitely switched MagicBands in the middle of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because I found a new style I liked. 

    To link a MagicBand or MagicBand+ to a family member, click on the three horizontal bars in the bottom right of your My Disney Experience mobile app. Find and select “MagicBands and More.” Scroll down to find “Link Your MagicBand or Card” and follow the steps to link the MagicBand or MagicBand+. Once you reach the step to link the band to a Guest, anyone who is on your Family & Friends List should appear as an option. 

    After you link your band, there are so many ways to use it! You can use your band to enter the theme parks, access your Disney Resort hotel room, scan into a Lightning Lane queue, and add PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account. If you have MagicBand+, I suggest taking a walk through the theme parks and looking for the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection. Stop by a golden statue and wave- you might just get a reaction from the character in front of you! My family loved trying to spot all the character statues on our last visit, it was a great way to have fun while walking to the next attraction. 

    If you have any issues linking your MagicBand after following the steps I described above, I recommend visiting the Guest Experience Team located in each of the theme parks. You can find them under blue umbrellas labeled “Guest Experience Team.”

    Enjoy your visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Elizabeth! Please visit me again at planDisney!
