    Hi, We are visiting soon, and already have magic bands, which are linked to our account, but at the top a new order for magic bands shows. Just checking if our existing magic bands will work, for example at Disney's Magical Express? Thanks Jo

    Hi Joanne,

    It sounds like you have a quickly-approaching visit to Walt Disney World...how exciting! I am glad to hEAR that you will be staying at one of the fabulously-themed Walt Disney World Resort hotels, and that you are already planning to take advantage of some of the perks and benefits afforded to Walt Disney World Resort hotel guests, including Disney's Magical Express complimentary transportation from the Orlando International Airport. Using Disney's Magical Express is my family's favorite way to start our Walt Disney World Resort vacations.

    Joanne, it sounds like you are already aware that complimentary Disney MagicBands are provided to guests with each Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. It also sounds like you have likely already customized and finalized your MagicBand order using your My Disney Experience account...that's great! As you reside outside the United States, your MagicBands will be ready and waiting at the front desk of your Resort hotel and provided to you at check-in.

    However, if you have a MagicBand from a past trip which is still connected to your My Disney Experience account, by all means bring that along. Provided the RFID technology in the MagicBand is still active, you will certainly be able to use it for check in at Disney's Magical Express. Generally the lifespan of the RFID technology on a MagicBand is about two years. However, just in case, I suggest that you still bring along your paperwork showing your Disney's Magical Express reservation confirmation.

    Wishing you a wonderful upcoming Disney holiday!
