    How do I check my magic bands charge status on my Disney experience app?

    It's great to see you back again today at planDisney, Kathy!

    MagicBands are a great piece of tech to make your Walt Disney World Resort vacation more seamless! No more digging around in your bag or pockets for your tickets, you can just tap your wrist to gain entry to the Theme Parks and use the Lightning Lane if you're taking advantage of Disney Genie+ service. 

    If you have a MagicBand+, you can check its charge status in the My Disney Experience app by tapping on the main menu in the bottom right corner of the app and selecting "MagicBands and More." You'll see your name and your Disney Character icon at the top of the screen, and when you tap on that your MagicBand+ will be displayed and you can see the charge status there.

    If you have an older version of the MagicBand, you won't be able to check its charge status as they don't connect to your phone through Bluetooth. Older MagicBands do not need to be charged, and they last a really long time! I have some from over five years ago that still work perfectly, so don't hesitate to pack them along in your bag so you can test them out on your trip.

    Have a magical day, Kathy!

Meet the Panelist: Jessica, Texas

I'm a personal stylist and I live in Texas with my husband and our three rescue animals. We are Disney Parks-obsessed and love enjoying all the magic that's out there especially for grown-ups. In fact, we even opted out of a tropical honeymoon to spend a blissful week at Walt Disney World Resort instead! I'm thrilled to be on the planDisney Panel and I'm excited to share everything I've learned from all of our trips and help you plan a memorable family vacation.  Learn More About Jessica
