    Nick from IL Asked

    We have magic bands from a vacation a few years ago. We are not staying on the Disney property, but can we use the same magic bands again and have our new tickets added to them?

    Hi, Nick! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks so much for bringing your question to us! You are welcome to reuse your MagicBands from a previous visit to Walt Disney World Resort. However, the battery inside the MagicBands lasts around two years. If your previous was more than two years ago, I worry that they may no longer work for you. I suggest you bring them, but also have on hand your Disney Theme Park Tickets or a printout of the confirmation email from your ticket purchase. If your MagicBand does not work when you tap it to the Mickey touchpoint, you can simply head over to Guest Services and they will be able to give you tickets to use at the entrances and FastPass+ queues.

    The MagicBands are simply a link to your My Disney Experience account, where all of your magical plans and tickets are stored. As long as your new Disney Theme Park Tickets are linked to the same guest profiles to which the old MagicBands are linked, then you can use them to access the tickets to enter the parks.

    Be sure to make your FastPass+ selections before your trip begins. You will be able to make these up to 30 days in advance of any day you plan to visit a theme park. There are some very popular attractions, so try to make a list of ones that are most important to members of your group. Some may not be available, but if you have a good size list, then you will have a better chance of making magic happen for your family!

    Thanks again for stopping by and please let us know if you have any other questions as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
