    I'm visiting WDW from Mexico, that means my magic bands don't get shipped to me. I have one from my last visit 1 1/2 years ago. Can I still use it? Will my magical express reservation be linked to the old one? Will I be able to unlock my room door?

    Hello and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thanks for sending this great question over to us. MagicBands make our stays at the Walt Disney World Resort super easy. Not only can we use them to unlock our resort room's door, enter the theme parks, and even pay for purchases, they can help us link our magical Disney PhotoPass pictures to our My Disney Experience account. We love using our Memory Maker product to download those pictures as soon as we get home and relive all of the magic!

    You are welcome to reuse your MagicBand from your previous visit to access your Disney's Magical Express reservation. The batteries within the MagicBands tend to last around two years, so yours should still be active. If by chance it is not working, then just step over to the nearby Disney's Magical Express Welcome Desk and a Cast Member will print out a letter that can be used to scan for entrance to the queue. I recommend you do go ahead and customize new MagicBands as soon as possible, which you can choose to pick up at your resort. Upon arrival, just stop by the Front Desk to complete check-in and pick up the stored MagicBands. You can still continue to use your older MagicBands or the new ones, as they will both be linked to your My Disney Experience account. Your account is where all of your vacation essentials are stored, such as your resort room information, your Disney Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ selections, and dining reservations.

    I hope you have a pixie-dusted visit to Walt Disney World Resort and please let us know if you have any other questions!
