    Can wristbands be shared? My daughter in law has several from previous trips to Disney and my daughter and I are planning a trip in May 2021. Can we use ok’d wristbands or do have to purchase new?

    Hey there, Angela. Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Your trip to the most magical place on earth is just a few short months away. I bet you are getting so excited! 

    At this time, you can't reassign a MagicBand to another person. So you wouldn't be able to use your daughter-in-law's MagicBands from a previous trip. If you or your daughter have been to Walt Disney World before and used a MagicBand that was originally assigned to you, you are absolutely able to use that one during your vacation. If you'd like to use a MagicBand during your trip, you can purchase them beforehand via your MyDisneyExperience account. Once you are logged in head to the "My MagicBands and Cards Section". Once on that page you should see the option to pick out and order MagicBands for your upcoming vacation. If you don't want to preorder MagicBands, you can pick them up at just about any souvenir shop at the Walt Disney World Theme Parks or Resort Hotels. There is no pressure to buy a MagicBand, however. You can get a complimentary Key to the World card at your Resort's front desk. This card will unlock your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel's room door and scan you into the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. The cards have recently gotten a new design and are super cute. I actually would like to collect them all. 

    On top of a MagicBand of a Key to the World card, one tool that you'll need to have is the MyDisneyExperience app downloaded on your smartphone device. This app makes a Walt Disney World vacation a breeze. You'll be able to see wait times for all of the attractions at each park, unlock your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room door and view your photos taken around the parks by PhotoPass photographers. The feature you will probably use the most is mobile ordering. Most quick-service dining locations throughout Walt Disney World are only accepting mobile ordering at this time. From the app you'll be able to view the menu, customize your order and pay for your food. When your food is ready, you'll receive a notification letting you know which window to pick up your food at. It's a super convenient process and I actually wouldn't mind if this feature stays around once things go back to normal.

    I hope you and your daughter have a wonderful time at Walt Disney World, Angela. If you have any more questions before your trip, I'm here to help

    Have fun!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
