    I have a brand new in package 2017 magic band. Will I still be able to activate it for my January 2022 Walt Disney World trip?

    Welcome to planDisney, Heidi! Here we love helping Guests like you make their Disney vacation dreams come true. We hope that by answering your vacation questions, we can help you experience the most magical Disney vacation possible. I am so happy to hear that you plan to visit Walt Disney World Resort in a few months. January is a lovely time of year to visit, typically with smaller crowds and the start of the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts.

    I have MagicBands from 2017 that still work! Yours should still work for you as long as the battery has life and you have it linked to your Disney account in My Disney Experience. To link your MagicBand or check to see if it is already linked, log in to My Disney Experience and select My Bands and Cards under the My Disney Experience drop-down menu. Scroll down until you see Manage MagicBands or Cards. If you do not see your MagicBand already linked to you, scroll down further until you see Link a MagicBand. To link your MagicBand you will enter the ID Number location the back of the MagicBand. 

    I hope you have an unforgettable vacation in The Most Magical Place on Earth in January! Please stop back by planDisney if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
