    Our 2020 Disney vacation was cancelled. We still have our Magic Bands. Can we still use them for our April 2023 trip?

    Howdy, Donna! Thanks for visiting planDisney!

    I'm sorry to hear that you had to postpone the magic, but I'm glad you were able to find another time that worked for your family to visit, as the Walt Disney World Resort is back and as magical as ever!

    Donna, if you have MagicBands from 2020, I'm happy to report that they will still work for your upcoming vacation. If you purchased them with the pre-arrival option through your Disney Resort Hotel, they will already be linked to each Guest individually and ready to use. If you purchased the MagicBands at a store or through shopDisney, you'll just need to make sure to link each band to the Guest who will be using it during your vacation.

    Not only will your MagicBands work for your upcoming stay, but you're able to use them over and over again each time you visit The Walt Disney World Resort. It is quite convenient for future vacations, as it takes one step off of the planning process every time. Ka-Chow!

    Donna, if you're unfamiliar with the features of the MagicBand, be sure to check out all of this trusty Mouseketool's skills before you arrive. A few highlights: Unlocking your Disney Resort Hotel room, scanning into the theme parks each day, redeeming your Disney Genie+ and Individual Lightning Lane selections, and using them as a method of payment throughout the entire resort when staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. Not to mention, it doubles as both an accessory and a souvenir!

    I hope this helps answer your question today, Donna! I'm sending all the pixie dust your way!

    See ya real soon,
