    We already have magic bands from a previous trip. I'd like to book tickets and am not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort this time. Is it possible to re-activate our existing magic bands, or do I need to take the card route?

    Hi Jessica,

    How lucky to be heading back to the Walt Disney World Resort! I love planning a trip because it means fun, family and unforgettable memories.

    If the space between your last trip and this trip is more than two years, you will need a new Magic Band. Magic Bands are always active and have a life of two years. If you do not want to pay for a new Magic Band because it has been more than two years between trips, then the card is the way to go.

    You can pick up new Magic Band online at the Disney Store or any store at the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Wishing you a magical day!
