    How do I update a guest profile so she can order her magic bands

    Hi Sheila, welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands are a great way to access the magic during your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation. There are a few ways to purchase MagicBands, which are the colorful wrist accessories that allow Guests to tap into magic at park entry, Lightning Lane entrances, and with Disney PhotoPass photographers. MagicBands purchased on shopDisney or on Disney property can be purchased by anyone and must be linked to a My Disney Experience account before use. Kindly note that the process for linking MagicBand+ and MagicBand 2 designs is different. 

    MagicBands ordered online through My Disney Experience must be connected to a Disney Resorts Collection hotel reservation and are eligible for a pre-arrival discount. Everyone listed on the reservation must select or decline a MagicBand before a checkout option is given.

    It sounds like there's someone in your party that currently has a My Disney Experience account profile managed by you. Confirm this by taking a look at your Family and Friends list, Sheila. Anyone with "Plans managed by me" next to their name must use your account to link tickets, make theme park reservations, link MagicBands, make dining reservations, etc. If someone with their account profile managed by you decides to create their own My Disney Experience account, here are the steps to merge their newly created account with the profile currently managed by you:

    1. Click "Update" next to that person's name on your Family and Friends list.
    2. Click "Share planning with [Guest's name]."
    3. Enter the email address associated with the Guests' newly created My Disney Experience account.
    4. Have the Guest check their email and accept the invitation to connect. Once the invitation is accepted, all of the plans you made for them will automagically transfer to their new account. You will remain connected as Family and Friends, which means you can view and make plans for each other. This change will give the Guest the ability to link their own MagicBands or, if applicable, place a pre-arrival MagicBand order for your party as described above.

    I hope I understood your desire correctly, Sheila. If not, please follow up with as many specifics as possible. 

    Plan magic; planDisney.
