    I used a magicband+ at Disneyland not world can someone else use my magicband+?

    Hello there, Jennifer!

    Welcome to planDisney! I love that you're going to sprinkle some pixie dust by sharing your MagicBand+ and I'm happy to help you get set up!

    Using MagicBand+ when you're visiting the Disneyland Resort is an awesome way to easily enter the parks, tap into attractions using Lightning Lanes, gather pictures from Disney PhotoPass photographers, and even be part of the nighttime spectaculars as your band lights up with the show! I'm happy to tell you that at Disneyland you can easily change which ticket your MagicBand+ is assigned to, so you're welcome to switch up your band to match your outfit or share your favorite band with a friend!

    When a MagicBand+ has been linked to a ticket in your account you will be able to see it in your Disneyland Mobile App when you click the "≡" icon and select "MagicBand+" from the menu. This will show you any MagicBand+ that has been linked to your account! It's easy in the app to select the band and then assign a ticket to it, so if you want someone else to use it who is on your account (like when I trade bands with my kids) you don't even have to unlink the band from your account. Just change which ticket it's assigned to! When you select a MagicBand+ you'll also see the option to "Unlink" the band from your account so that someone else (on a different Disneyland account) can use it. Your friend would need to use their own Disneyland Mobile App to follow the pairing instructions for MagicBand+ just like you did when your band was new.

    It's also a good idea to check the MagicBand+ section of the Disneyland app once in a while to make sure your band is updated—you don't want to miss any of the fun interactions in the parks! You can also check the battery level there, and I especially love changing my Light Up Theme to my favorite color. Did you notice on your last visit that your MagicBand+ also reacts to some attractions? Make sure you pay attention the next time you ride the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park for a spooky surprise as you exit!

    I love a good friend, Jennifer, and you sound like an especially magical one. Don't forget to charge up that MagicBand+ for its next visit, and I hope we'll be seeing you again soon!

    Keep moving forward!
