    I already have a Magic Band with my Annual Pass on it. I'm staying at a Disney resort in an upcoming trip and they're sending me another Magic Band. Do they each have different information or can I use them interchangeably?

    Hi Jillian,

    It sounds like you are already a seasoned pro in using your Disney MagicBand. This wonderful piece of technology is a complete game-changer for our trips to Walt Disney World. From checking in at the Disney Magical Express counter, unlocking our Walt Disney World Resort hotel room, accessing our Theme Park tickets and Fastpasses, and linking to Disney PhotoPass, MagicBands make everything seamless and hassle-free.

    Jillian, I am happy to confirm that provided your MagicBands are less than two years old, you should still be able to use them on a subsequent trip. Once a MagicBand is linked to your My Disney Experience account, it will continue to act interchangeably with all other MagicBands associated with your account. The RFID technology in each MagicBand will generally continue to function for approximately two years before having to be retired from your My Disney Experience account.

    Therefore, you will certainly be able to continue using any currently active MagicBands you received during past trips, along with any new MagicBand you receive in relation to your upcoming trip.

    My daughter and I have made it somewhat of a challenge to collect the entire rainbow of different MagicBand colors so that we can pick and choose our MagicBand based on which one best coordinates with our daily outfits.

    Jillian, I hope this information is helpful. Should you have any other questions, please let us know. We are here to help and want you to have the best possible upcoming Disney vacation!
