    We are trying to link our magic bands to our account but they are already linked to my parents old account. How do we link them to our account? How do we get my daughter a magic band? There doesn't seem to be an option for a plain colored band.

    Hiya Chad! Welcome to planDisney!

    It looks like you're getting prepared for your next trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! The Walt Disney World Resort is currently celebrating its 50th Anniversary and it is oh-so-magical! Be prepared for some iridescent touches everywhere you turn! Oh, and the new nighttime spectacular shows add an extra layer of magic, so I highly suggest finding a cozy spot to watch Harmonious or Disney Enchantment during your stay.

    Chad, MagicBands are my favorite Mouseketool of all time! I love the convenience of having a payment method, room key, admission ticket and more all in one place right on my wrist! With the new Disney Genie+ system, MagicBands are extra handy, as they allow you to scan into your ride reservations with ease. Another great thing about MagicBands? They are yours for life! Once the MagicBand is assigned to a Guest, it will hold that particular Guests' information and can be used over and over again. However, this does mean that they cannot be transferred to a different Guest. If the bands are linked to your parents, they cannot be assigned to different names. If the MagicBands were linked to your My Disney Experience Account, they will still work for you this trip.

    If you have a reservation at a Disney Resort Hotel, you can purchase a discounted MagicBand for your daughter, and any other Guest listed on the reservation, through your My Disney Experience Mobile App. Open the app and tap the menu button in the bottom right corner. Tap "Resort Hotel," then scroll down to "Choose MagicBands." Here, you will click any Guest you'd like to purchase a MagicBand for and scroll through the options and prices. Select the one you like, complete this process for all Guests on the reservation (or decline a MagicBand if a Guest already has one) and follow the steps to checkout. If you don't find a MagicBand you like listed, you can check out the selection on shopDisney. My little ones love the Slap Bracelet MagicBands, as they're easy for them to use and a little more fun!

    Have a magical day, Chad!
