    I am going to Disney World in November 2023. How do I know if my old magic band is still usable? It is 3 or 4 years old now and will of course be 5 yrs when we go. Any information will be greatly appreciated ! Have a Very Blessed Day, Becky

    Hiya Becky! Welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm so thrilled that you've returned to utilize the planDisney panel in helping plan your vacation to The Most Magical Place on Earth! We always have our wands at the ready to help Guests just like you with questions just like yours! Let's get down to business..

    Becky, my favorite thing about MagicBands is that they can be used over and over and over again across multiple vacations at the Walt Disney World Resort. As long as you use the same My Disney Experience Account as when you visited last, the MagicBand in your possession will automatically be linked to your new tickets, as well as your Disney Resort Hotel information. There is no need to activate your band or sprinkle any extra pixie dust on it before you arrive!

    Recently, the MagicBand+ was released at Walt Disney World. Similar to the MagicBands we all know and love, the MagicBand+ retains all of our favorite features while adding in a few more magical touches. The MagicBand+ offers special games and activities through the Play Disney Parks App, lights up in sync with Nighttime Spectaculars like Disney Enchantment and Harmonious and interacts with the Fab 50 Character Collection throughout the parks. You can now purchase these at a special pre-arrival price through your My Disney Experience Account or choose a different design on shopDisney!

    Have a magical day, Becky!
