    A few weeks ago I returned home from Disney World and today My Disney+ band went off different colors. It was so pretty and fun!! Why did it do that? Can I get it to do it again? My whole family also bought the bands. Loved them!

    Hi Barbara and welcome to planDisney!

    I do hope you had a wonderful time on your Walt Disney World vacation!  It's always sad to come home after a magical trip, but that just means it's time to start planning another one!

    MagicBands are such a fun tool to use while on vacation at Walt Disney World.  They make things so convenient like entering theme parks, making purchases for merchandise and dining and opening your Disney Resort hotel room door.  There's no need to dig around in your bag for various cards when you have all the access right on your wrist!  The new MagicBand+ really kicked it up a notch with the addition of lights and vibration.  Were you able to interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues at the parks?  When you wave at them, they activate your MagicBand+ and make it dance and some of the statues even talk to you!

    You can still have some fun when you're at home with your MagicBand+!  Gently double tap on the surface of it and it will light up again.  It will also light up when it's on the charging cable as well.  You can access the MagicBand+ settings in the My Disney Experience Mobile App and even change the color combination.  It's fun to play around with!  To do this, open the app, click on the three horizontal lines on the bottom right of the screen and then click on "MagicBands and More".  Make sure your MagicBand+ is paired with your device and then customize away!

    If you plan on visiting the parks again within the next two years, hold on to your MagicBands and bring them with you on your next visit to be reused.  Please stop back by if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
