    Do I have to use the magic band the resort gives me or can I use my own?

    Hi Rebecca and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I’m happy to see that you have a plan in the works for a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort this coming Holiday Season!

    MagicBands are my favorite accessory when heading to the theme parks. Did you know that they will serve as your Disney Resort hotel room key throughout your stay? 

    When it comes to the complimentary MagicBand you will receive when staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you don’t have to use it if you already have one. Many guests purchase special character bands from the Shop Disney Parks web page to use on their trips. 

    A few important things to note about your MagicBand, should you use an older one. The battery in the bands lasts for about two years. After that, there’s no real way to replace the battery, so you will have to use a newer band. If you’d like to use a new band, just make sure it’s linked to your My Disney Experience account

    As you continue to plan your trip, make sure to take a look at all the great Holiday events. Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party kicks off on November 8th. 

    Rebecca, I hope this information helps you as you’re figuring out all the details for your visit! Have a wonderful vacation!
