    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!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
