    Have water park 5 day options from a stay 6 yrs ago put on magic band from trip this year. Going in 2018 , can we get new bands an will leftover water park tickets transfer over to a new magic band?

    Hi, Anita!

    Great question!

    I have many MagicBands from multiple stays in Walt Disney World, in addition to a special Elsa MagicBand I purchased over a year ago. What's great about MagicBands is that they are linked to your My Disney Experience (MDE) account, so each one enables you to access anything in that account. Park tickets, dining reservations, resort hotel stays and PhotoPass pictures are all linked to that one account, regardless of which MagicBand you use to access it.

    Those bands that come along with your Walt Disney World resort hotel reservation can be customized (color, name on the inside of band) and shipped to your home, making arrival and use of Disney's Magical Express a breeze; those bands are automatically added to your MDE account. If you purchase specialty MagicBands at Disney Store.com or while in parks, these can be linked to your My Disney Experience account easily; add them by scrolling to the bottom of the "MagicBands and Cards" page in "My Account" portion of My Disney Experience and clicking on "Link".

    You'll love how all of your active MagicBands can be used interchangeably throughout your stay, Anita. It's fun to coordinate colors based on time of year, holiday season or each family member's personal preference. Enjoy!

    Send more questions as plan, too; we love to help!
