    Hi! I have complimentary Magic Bands from March (trip was cancelled due to Covid). My party & I are now visiting in November, I purchased themed bands this time. Can the 2 sets be used interchangeably as long as both are active in MDE. Thanks, Christie

    Hi Christie! 

    Welcome back to planDisney! Thanks for bringing another question our way! 

    As a Disneyland Resort specialist, I have not been Walt Disney World as many times as some of my fellow panelists. But, somehow I still managed to acquire quite the collection of MagicBands. Since I don’t have a chance to use my MagicBand collection in California, I always bring a few with me when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. I like to coordinate my MagicBand with my outfit each day or choose the color that best matches the holiday season. I'm sorry your previous trip was canceled, but I have some good news! Any and all active MagicBands linked to your profile will work during your trip. So the complimentary ones you received in March should not go to waste! I recommend checking to make sure your MagicBands are active before your trip. It's easy! Simply go to "MagicBands & Cards" in your My Disney Experience account. On the mobile app, you'll find "MagicBands & Cards" under "My Profile". There, you can see the status of all MagicBands and Cards that are assigned to you. And, if you pick up a MagicBand or two while you’re on vacation, link them to your My Disney Experience account so you can begin using them right away! 

    Enjoy your vacation next month! Please keep coming back to planDisney with your vacation planning questions!  

    See Ya Real Soon!
