    My son purchased a new Star Wars magic band for our upcoming trip, so now he has 2. Can I somehow use his "older" one he purchased two years ago, can it be transferred to me?

    Hi Connie,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I love to use MagicBands during a trip to Walt Disney World Resort because it is so convenient to have access to my theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations, and Memory Maker account by just tapping my MagicBand to a Mickey touch point. Unfortunately, MagicBands are non-transferrable so you will not be able to transfer your son's old MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account. However, your son will be able to use both of his MagicBands interchangeably during your trip as long as they are both found in his My Disney Experience MagicBands and Cards page.

    If you will be staying at a Disney resort hotel for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation, then you will receive a complimentary MagicBand for your trip that will also serve as hour hotel room key and give you charging privileges to your room account. Otherwise if you will be a day Guest to Walt Disney World Resort, you can purchase a MagicBand at the Shop Disney website or at one of the gift shops at the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, hotel or Disney Springs. This will give you an opportunity for you to select a MagicBand that perfectly fits your Disney personality!

    Please let us know if you have additional questions as you continue to prepare for your trip. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
