    My family of four still have our magic bands from our last trip to WDW in 2018. Will we be able to link them to our account so that we can use them again this year? Thanks

    Hello again Karen, and welcome back to planDisney!  

    It's always such a delight to offer some additional pixie-dusted assistance to a returning Guest of Walt Disney World Resort.

    I don't mind admitting that I have a long-linked chain of colourful MagicBands from my previous trips to the most magical place on earth!  Some would say it's an obsession, but I prefer to call in a collection!  

    Karen, I have some great news to share with you concerning your MagicBands purchased during your 2018 Disney holiday!  Unless you've gone ahead and deactivated your MagicBands within your My Disney Experience account, they should still be active.  Therefore, upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort, any active, still functioning MagicBands should be still good for use during your upcoming August holiday.  

    The only caveat to mention is that some older MagicBands might not have the range of functionality of the newer, more up-to-date MagicBands; such as the highly anticipated new MagicBand+.

    The summer months are truly glorious times of the year for a Disney visit!  You'll want to be sure to make time to catch an enchanted performance of Disney's Festival of Fantasy Parade as it recently returned to the Magic Kingdom Park.  Plus, don't forget to look out for limited-time summer-season snack offerings by checking out the Disney Parks Blog ahead of your arrival.

    Karen, please don't hesitate to drop back to me here at planDisney if you should have any further questions.  It's always a pleasure to help a fellow Brit wherever I am able!

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
