    Where going to WDW in October, my daughter has two active magic bands, she is bringing a friend,can her friend use her extra band, and how do I change the name? Thank you.

    Hi Paul,

    Welcome back to planDisney! We're so glad you stopped by again with another great question, and I'm happy to hear you're planning an October visit. Between the 50th anniversary celebration, the Taste of EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, and all of the fall fun going on all around Walt Disney World Resort, you've chosen a wonderful time to visit!

    Because MagicBands link directly to your My Disney Experience account and are tied to an individual Guest, they cannot be transferred. Your daughter will be able to reuse her MagicBands on your upcoming trip, but if her friend wants to use one, a new one will need to be purchased. They're available for sale online at shopDisney before your trip or at any number of retail locations once you arrive, and there are some super cute options available! I personally love the new Country Bear Jamboree one, as it brings back decades of memories of watching that show with my dad. Oh, and did you see the recent announcement that Disney MobileMagic is now available for use on Apple devices? That's another great option for you and your crew to use during your visit if you'd like. The great thing is that MagicBands aren't going anywhere and you'll all be able to use MagicBands, cards, or Disney MobileMagic interchangeably to access the theme parks. Feel free to use whatever works best for you! 

    Please feel free to keep your questions coming, Paul, as we're always here and happy to help. I hope you all have a truly magical vacation this fall!
