    If you have an active MagicBand whose battery expired can you trade it in for a new one?

    Hello there, Douglas!

    Thanks for visiting us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I’m so happy to hEAR that you will be visiting Walt Disney World Resort! MagicBands are the best Mousekatools around! They are your all-in-one device that allows you to; unlock your door at your Disney Resort Hotel, enter the parks (with valid admission), check in at FastPass+ entrances, and connect Disney PhotoPass images to your account! Did you know that if you are a Disney Resort Hotel Guest you can even charge food and merchandise purchases to your room using your MagicBand?

    I’m telling you, a MagicBand is the best Mousekatool yet! As much of a Handy Helper they are, they also make the most perfect accessory! Since the lifespan of a MagicBand is about 2-years, I always get a new one when we go. I’m actually starting to feel like Ariel as my collection continues to grow. Although there is no trade-in program,  you are able to receive a new one each and every time you stay at a Disney Resort Hotel. My family actually keeps all of our old MagicBands and use them as part of the decoration in our home.

    If you are not staying at a Disney Resort Hotel but still want the convenience of a MagicBand, you are able to purchase them online. The only difference is you will not be able to use your MagicBand to make charges to your hotel room when you are not staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. No matter where you are staying or the length of your stay, I always recommend using a MagicBand when you visit. MagicBands are a way to accessories to fit your personality and they are just so convenient! If you rather wait and see what MagicBands designs are available in the Parks, you can do that too! There are many shops throughout Walt Disney World Resort that sell MagicBands. 

    See ya real soon!
