    My family and I are going to Disney World in November! We purchased 6 bands for our family last time-Sept 2015. Will the original style still work? How about checking if the battery works? Where can I check to see if the band work before we leave?

    Hi Violeta!

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel, and hello to a fellow NJ Disney fan! I really appreciate you reaching out to me directly with your question.

    I genuinely dig all the cools things that a MagicBand can do to make a Walt Disney World vacation go more smoothly. The good news is that the MagicBand you purchased should be good for 3 to 5 years, so you should be able to enjoy all its features and conveniences. Unfortunately, there is nothing I can suggest as a test or gadget check to help you see that your MagicBand is working properly prior to your trip. It does sounds like you haven't used your MagicBands since your last trip a few years ago. This is helpful, as it means the batteries have not seen a lot of use. The one tip I can share is to check your My Disney Experience account and look in the "MagicBands and Cards" section to ensure that your MagicBands are linked and have an "Active" status.

    Violeta, here's wishing you a wonderful Walt Disney World vacation.

    Enjoy your Disney!
