    We booked a Disney Vacation package incl tix and ordered magic bands. We then cancelled and rebooked our vacation. We have received our magic bands from the original reservation. Can we still use the magic bands or do we send them back and order again?

    Hi ya, Marissa!

    It’s so nice to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! MagicBands are truly the best all-in-one device. They are able to unlock the door to your Disney Resort hotel room, enter the parks with, connect your Disney PhotoPass photos to, and even be used to make food and merchandise purchases straight to your Disney Resort Hotel room. 

    My family actually had a similar experience last spring. We switched resorts last minute so we received two sets of MagicBands, the ones from our original reservation and the ones for our new updated reservation. There’s no need to send the MagicBands you received, from your previous reservation back, you can keep those. What we did and what I recommend you doing is using your MagicBands from your updated reservation. As long as the old ones are still linked to you on your My Disney Experience account, you can use the old ones too! I recommend checking to see which MagicBands are linked to each person by signing in to your account before arriving. 

    I like to bring the handful of MagicBands, that I have at home, with me each visit. This allows me to mix and match them to my outfits and Mickey Ears. I hope this helps, if you find that you have more questions as you continue to plan for your upcoming visit, be sure to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel again! We love to hEAR about your future trips!

    See ya real soon!
