    Hello! Up until recently, I have been a managed guest on my mother’s MDE account. I have since gotten married and have my own MDE account. Is there a way to transfer my magic band to my account, since it is still me and I was a manager guest on the other?

    Hi Kirstyn, welcome to planDisney!

    Having your own My Disney Experience account allows you to manage your own plans, like making theme park reservations, booking dining reservations, and using the Disney Genie Service. This is useful if you're visiting Walt Disney World Resort without your mother. 

    You should be able to merge your new personal account with the account your mother managed. You will need your mother to log in to her My Disney Experience account and go to her Family & Friends List. Your mother will need to find your profile and select “Update” and then “Share plans with this guest.” It will ask your mother for your email address associated with your new personal My Disney Experience account. 

    You will receive an email invitation to share planning with your mother, and once you accept, all the information should combine into your new My Disney Experience account, including your MagicBand. If you have any issues with this process or would rather speak to a Cast Member while making the change, I recommend calling the number listed here under “Website Support.” 

    Once you complete the merge, your mother will appear on your Family & Friends List. That means you’ll still be able to easily share plans for the next time you visit Walt Disney World Resort together! 

    I hope this was helpful, Kirstyn. If you have any future questions, please visit me again at planDisney!
