    How do I go about recycling or disposing of an magic band? I've already deactivated it on My Disney Experience, but since it has a battery and electronics, does it need recycled with electronics recycling? Will Disney recycle them if I bring them with me?

    Hi there, Russell!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I actually had this same question myself not too long ago.

    Since my family and I travel frequently to Walt Disney World Resort, we were building up quite the collection of Magic Bands at our house. On our last trip I asked the staff at the front desk of our resort, and they do take them and recycle them. So unless you want to make a Magic Band garland for decorating at home, then just pack them on your next trip and recycle them!

    I hope this helps and please come back if we can answer any other questions for you. Have a magical day!
