    Hi again! I bought a couple of Magic bands in 2019, and we are not going back to WDW until April 2022. Would I need to buy Magic bands again, or are they offered for free when you make your reservations?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Nicole! I’m so glad you’ve come back to visit us with another planning question. It’s my pleasure to help you!

    MagicBands are my favorite accessory when I’m on vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. While they are no longer complimentary with a stay at a Disney Resort Collection hotel, you can absolutely use the bands you already have. As long as they are used again by the same guests and a valid theme park ticket is linked to them, you are good to go!

    You can also do a little browsing on shopDisney before your next visit. There are so many great styles for MagicBands all the time! You can just link a new band to your My Disney Experience account and then you can use more than one band during your vacation.

    Nicole, in the months leading up to your next magical trip, I suggest visiting the Know Before You Go section of Disney’s site. That way you will be in the know, when it comes to all the health and safety measures being taken all over the resort during your stay.

    I hope I’ve been helpful. If you have any other planning questions, don’t hesitate to stop by and see us again. You can also see what the planDisney family has been up to at the theme parks, when you follow us on Instagram. We love sharing our experiences with you!
