    Hello! Can magic bands from 6 years ago still work, and if not, how easy is it to get cards when using Magic Mobile? Thanks!

    Hey there, hi there, Karine!

    Welcome back to planDisney! It’s always a delight when you stop by with your question for us.

    Three chEARs for returning to the magic! I’m elated to hear your trip is around the corner, and I do hope you’re ready to enjoy all the festivities being offered currently! For instance, you’ll love all the delicious holiday cuisine at the food booths around the World Showcase at EPCOT in celebration of the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays

    Karine, the six-year-old MagicBands most likely won’t work anymore, so I’m happy to discuss other methods of park entry with you! 

    Disney MagicMobile service is great if you have an eligible iPhone, Apple Watch, or Google Pay-enabled Android phone. You’re able to set up the service through your My Disney Experience Mobile app by following the steps in the app to create your digital pass. You can also link passes to other members of your party to your device if you need to. After creating the cards, they can be uploaded to your Apple Wallet or Google Pay and used for your visit. Once you arrive at the turnstiles at the theme parks, you will want to pull up your Disney MagicMobile card on your Apple Wallet or Google Pay and scan it to enter. To access other members of your party’s cards that are in your Apple Wallet or Google Pay, you will swipe to scan theirs.

    Another method you can use is to head to the Will Call windows, which are located at the entrance of all four theme parks on the first day of your park visit. Simply show the Cast Member at the window the barcode in the email you received, as well as the original payment method used. They will give you and your party admission cards which will act as your tickets for the length of your vacation. 

    And, of course, you’re always welcome to purchase new MagicBands upon arrival at Disney Springs

    We can’t wait to welcome you back, Karine! Have an enchanting visit!
