    Hi! I have an upcoming trip and would like to know if my older magic band could now be used for someone new or is it only available for the person who it was purchased for? Thanks for the help!

    Hi Kimberly,

    Don't you just love using MagicBands when visiting Walt Disney World? This remarkable piece of technology, which you can wear on your wrist like a watch or attach it to your person, comes in a rainbow of different colors, or you can purchase themed and more unique MagicBands from many merchandise locations in the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, Resorts, Disney Springs, or online at shopDisney.

    MagicBands truly are magic, as they make it possible to access practically everything you need for a great Disney vacation with a simple tap, including Theme Park Tickets, FastPasses, Disney Dining Plan, Walt Disney World Resort hotel room access, and even room charging privileges.

    Kimberly, once a MagicBand is linked or associated with your My Disney Experience account, you will be the only person capable of using that MagicBand as it will be forever linked to your personal profile. Therefore, it will unfortunately not be possible for you to share your MagicBand with others. However, should you ever wish to reuse a MagicBand, you can certainly continue to do so for the lifetime of the RFID technology in the MagicBand, which typically lasts about two yEARs. During any given time you can have a number of different MagicBands associated with your account, all of which will work interchangeably. 

    Wishing you a MAGICAL upcoming Disney vacation Kimberly!
