    Margarita from Guatemala Asked

    We are traveling in a couple of months to WDW, can I use the same magic bands I used on a prior trip or should I request for new ones? I always request the new ones and I have a lot of magic bands.

    Hi Margarita,

    It definitely sounds like you enjoy using MagicBands during your trips to Walt Disney World Resort as much as I do. The remarkable technology inside your MagicBand is remarkable and, in my view, they just keep getting better and better each trip. I love being able to use my MagicBand as my room key to unlock my Resort hotel room, store and access my Theme Parks tickets and Fastpasses, charge purchases to my room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, and so much more!

    Margarita, I am happy to confirm that provided your MagicBands are less than two years old, you will 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.

    As it turns out, my daughter and I each have quite a collection of active MagicBands and typically bring a number of past MagicBands with us each trip so that we can color coordinate our daily MagicBand with our outfit of the day.

    Margarita, 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!
