    Our family has a our vacation week on a split reservation on different accounts,how do I make sure everyone's magic bands work for both reservations? Our tickets are all on one but I'm worried about them being used at the second resort

    Hi Danielle,

    Welcome to planDisney!  Thank you for stopping by today with your question about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation.

    It seems as if recently, most of my Walt Disney World vacations have been a "split stay" between two Walt Disney World Resort Collection hotels.  This is a great way to experience two different Disney Resort hotels as well as the ability to save a little on your budget if you stay at a Value Resort category or Moderate Resort category for part of your stay.

    You will be happy to know that your MagicBand or MagicBand+ is linked to you, the individual, in your My Disney Experience account.  It is not just linked to your Disney Resort hotel reservation.  Once you have your MagicBand/MagicBand+ linked to your account, it will be automatically linked to all of your plans until or unless you deactivate it in your My Disney Experience account.  Additionally, if you have more than one MagicBand/MagicBand+, they can all be used interchangeably.  The nice thing about the new MagicBand+ is that they can be recharged, unlike the older MagicBands which had a non-rechargeable battery that lasted approximately 2 years.

    Now as for your tickets, you will be happy to know that your date-based theme park tickets are good for the length of time specified by the length of your tickets and not which Disney Resort hotel in which you are staying.  For example, a 7-day ticket expires 10 days after the selected start date.  If you purchased your theme park tickets as part of a vacation package that includes your Disney Resort hotel and theme park tickets, then the start date would be the first day of your first Disney Resort hotel reservation.  If you purchased your theme park tickets separately, look at your purchase and you will see the date in which your theme park tickets begin and you will be able to determine when they end by looking at the previous link for expiration based upon the length of your theme park tickets.

    I hope this information proves useful as you continue with your vacation plans.  Please come back and visit us here at planDisney with all of your future questions, we look forward to hearing from you again!

    See Ya Real Soon,
