    can i use bands i used in the past

    Hi John! 

    Thank you for coming to planDisney to ask your question about MagicBands

    Since MagicBands were introduced in 2013 at Walt Disney World, I have amassed an embarrassingly large collection of them. I can’t help myself, I love a new color or pattern or theme! Plus, I need different ones to match my different outfits. 

    That being said, YES, you can bring a MagicBand from the past to use on your next Walt Disney World vacation. I have had trouble at times with the older ones not opening my resort room door, but since you can now do that with the app, it’s all good! 

    It is believed that MagicBands have a battery life of about 2 years, so be sure to bring one (or two) of your newer bands for your next trip. No need to purchase a new one. 

    I hope you have a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation in September! Please come back to visit us with any other questions that arise as you continue to plan! 

    Happy Traveling,

GAWRSH! Hiya pals! I am a Goofy-loving mom of 2, who is married to my real-life Prince Charming. My family supports my passion for all things Disney. Walt Disney World was my very first vacation, when I was just 3 months old, and I recently completed my 73rd trip to a Disney location! I have been fortune enough to parasail high above the Disney Fantasy, attend opening day of Batuu, snorkel in the lagoon at Disney's Aulani, and SO MUCH MORE! I can't wait to help you plan your Disney vacation!
