    My husband and I are traveling to WDW for the Epcot Wine and Food Festival in 2014 and have already customized our Magicbands. We have also booked our family vacation for late 2015. Will we get new Magicbands or use the ones we receive this year?

    Hi Ann-Marie,

    So happy to hear that you are going to visit the Epcot International Food and Wine Festival this year. It's my favorite "season" at Walt Disney World, and I can't wait to try some of the new tastes.

    As of right now, all guests who stay at a Walt Disney World receive new complimentary MagicBands for each visit. If that remains the policy, then, yes, you will get new MagicBands next year. However, I would hold onto them. The batteries are designed to last at least two years, so even if you get new MagicBands next year, you may want the ones you got this year as a backup. I have at least one MagicBand in every color, and I like to mix them up. I also like the idea that I have an extra in case I misplace one.

    Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. Please let me know if I can help in any other way as you make your final plans. Enjoy!
