    We bought our magic bands just before the new magic band+ was released. We have not used our magic bands yet, are we able to exchange our old bands for the upgraded one?

    Hiya, Kate!

    Welcome to planDisney, friend! I am delighted to see that you have planned a visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth this year. It's an incredible year to visit! The World's Most Magical Celebration is still going strong across all four theme parks. Get ready for dazzling EARidescnet decor, mesmerizing Beacons of Magic, and nighttime spectaculars that are sure to impress. 

    This is such a great question! The anticipated arrival of MagicBand+ is finally here, and they offer some really fun new features. Interaction with the Fab 50 Character Collection and virtual bounty hunting in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge are some really fun ways to enhance your theme park day. I can completely understand why you are interested in these new options. Kate, MagicBand purchases cannot be returned or exchanged due to the unique nature of these items. But Hakuna Matata! Your current MagicBands still offer many of the same great features that make these wristbands so convenient. You will be able to seamlessly enter the theme parks and open your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room with the tap of the wrist. You can also charge food and merchandise purchases right to your Disney hotel room and link your Disney PhotoPass photos. 

    Should you decide that MagicBand+ is still your preferred magical accessory, you can purchase these interactive bands in several merchandise locations located throughout Walt Disney World Resort during your stay. You can also order them online through shopDisney before you arrive. 

    I hope that your upcoming adventure is memorable and magical!
    We'll see ya real soon!
