    We are booked to stay at an off property resort in June. How do we link our previous Magic Bands to our new reservations? Also, if I'm not staying at a Disney Resort will I be able to see our itinerary through the app once I purchase our park tickets?

    Hi Jenna!

    Welcome to planDisney! From one New Yorker to another, thanks for stopping by! I am a huge fan of MagicBands use at Walt Disney World! I love the convenience of having my park tickets, hotel room access, and payment on my wrist. It eliminates having to dig at the bottom of my bag for credit cards, or admission cards when heading to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Plus the fact that they offer new and exciting designs periodically makes customizing them lots of fun!

    Jenna, you'll be happy to know that your MagicBand can still be used for admission to the parks. If you have a MagicBand that is older than 2 years, the system may have difficulty recognizing it, and you may need to look at purchasing a new one. You can check which MagicBands are active by logging into your My Disney Experience, and clicking on the 'MagicBands and Cards' tab. There you can see a list of your current MagicBands, and either deactivate ones that have been lost or activate ones that you have. Although you will not be staying on property, you will still be able to see your daily plans, such as Disney Park Pass reservations and any dining reservations you have made on the app. 

    Jenna, did you know that MagicBand+ is coming?  While we don't have a date as of yet, MagicBand+ promises to enhance your visits to the parks and resorts, with interactive moments and experiences! Keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for upcoming information.

    Hope this helps you plan your magical vacation!
