    I just found 3 Magic Bands from our trip to WDW 2 years ago. They are listed as "Active" on My Disney Experience website. Will they still work for our trip this May or should I order a new set of Magic Bands?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa! 

    Thank you so much for sending us your question. MagicBands are such an amazing addition in helping guests streamline their vacations. I don't know what we ever did without them.

    In general, the battery life of most MagicBands is expected to be about two years, so I don't know that I would rely on your prior bands to function the way you would expect once you arrive for your vacation. I would select a new set. The fun part about ordering and personalizing new ones for your May vacation will be that you'll be receiving the newly released MagicBand 2. 

    Visit your My Disney Experience Account to begin personalizing your new set of complementary MagicBands.

    I hope this helps, Lisa! Please let us know if you have any additional questions. We are here to help.
