    If I buy the MagicBand + can I use it the way I did my original MagicBands? What about the charging? How often during the day does it need to be recharged?

    Hello Micki!

    I am excited about the new MagicBand+, launched on July 27th, 2022! I have ordered my MagicBand+ from shopDisney. I can't wait to receive them and use them at Walt Disney World!

    The previous style of MagicBands will still work along with the new MagicBand+ (the MagicBand+ will do all the things that a MagicBand did and much more). You will have to pair your MagicBand+ to your mobile phone and link it to your My Disney Experience App. The battery on the MagicBand+ is designed to last 1 to 3 days on a full charge depending on park usage, but it is recommended to charge it overnight before your planned park days. You can check the battery status of your MagicBand+ through the My Disney Experience App or by the colors displayed on the MagicBand+ (you press the button on the back of the band, and it will light up a color to give you the current battery status). Suppose the MagicBand+ battery does get depleted during your day in a theme park. In that case, certain features will still be available like park entry, PhotoPass linking with a PhotoPass photographer or touchpoint, Walt Disney World Resort room entry, and Lightning Lane entry redemption like the previous MagicBands do.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is magical!
