I know and understand that Draco disarmed Dombledorf, at which point the Elder Wand transfered ownership to Draco, at which point Draco owns 2 wands. So when Harry disarmed Draco, Harry got the wand that Draco was actually was using, plus the Elder Wand. Although Draco never claimed, touched, or used the Elder Wand, let alone got disarmed while using it. So does this mean in the event that you disarm a Wizard/Witch that own more than one wand at the time you disarm them, you get ALL their wands?!?!?!?

The elder wand was a very specific wand. The only way it could be owned was by disarming or killing the wizard. The elder wand knew who was its "owner" from the get go.. as the plan unfolded. Draco "took" it from dumbeldor, then harry from Draco.

I do not think the other wands can even compare with the Elder wand. It had its own power. So that is why it did not work for Voldemort. The regular wands could work in the hands of someone else, even if it was not taken by disarming  but the elder wand would not work. You see?

From a today show interview:

Why was Draco the true owner of the Elder Wand?
Voldemort thinks that he becomes the true owner of the Elder Wand by stealing it from Dumbledore’s grave, but in the end we learn that the true owner was really Draco Malfoy, that is until Harry defeated him and allegiance transferred to Harry. How did Draco become the true owner of the Elder Wand?


“To truly own the Elder Wand, which means to receive the full benefits, double-edged though it is, of all its power, you have to have conquered the previous owner,” explained Rowling.

At the end of Book 6, “Half-Blood Prince,” Draco disarmed Dumbledore before Snape killed Dumbledore. 

“And that meant he conquered him, even though Dumbledore was very weak at the time, he was very ill. He was on the point of collapse when it happened,” Rowling said. “Dumbledore didn’t want to lose his wand at that point and Draco disarmed him. So that meant that the wand gave Draco its allegiance, even though Draco never knew it, even though Draco never touched it. 

“From that moment on, that wand gave its allegiance to Draco, and it wouldn’t work as well for anyone but Draco.”

When Harry wrestles Draco’s “everyday” wand out of his hand at the Malfoy’s mansion, he conquers Draco, and therefore the Elder Wand — hidden in Dumbledore’s tomb at the time — transfers its allegiance to Harry.

Rowling said her American editor suggested the moment when Harry conquers Draco should be more dramatic.

“But, no, I really wanted, very consciously, for the history of the wizarding world to hinge on this moment where two teenage boys have a physical [fight]. They don’t even do it by magic,” Rowling said. 

“That sort of puts all of Voldemort’s and Dumbledore’s grandiose plans in their place, doesn’t it? You just can’t plan that well, that something can go wrong and it went wrong … It went wrong because Harry managed to pull this wand out of Draco’s grip.
