    I didn't keep my Magic Bands from our trip from last yr. I will be coming back in Nov, did I need to keep them or will they send me new ones. I have a room only reservation right know, but will be purchasing my tickets soon.

    Hi Cheryl,

    No worries! Though the MagicBands are reusable and have a battery life of about two years, Walt Disney World is still issuing new bands to guests with each resort stay. I now have a full set of the seven colors and get a kick out of choosing the color that fits my mood each day.

    I suspect that, at some point in the future, guests will be asked whether they need a new band or want to reuse an existing one. But that's not the case now.

    If you log into your My Disney Experience account and click on the MagicBands & Cards link, you should already have the ability to customize new bands for your November trip. I have reservations for Thanksgiving week, and my account shows that I have until October 25 to choose the colors for those bands.

    I hope that helps clarify things as they stand now. The MagicBand procedures likely will continue to evolve as Disney finds ways to improve the system.

    Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as you plan your visit. Enjoy!
