    Hi, I'm writing you because we are planing to visit wdw in September, it's my second time since we got our magic bands. I would like to know if we have to bring them with us or if they are giving us new magic bands. Thanks for your answer, Andrea.

    Hi Andrea,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Welcome back, in advance, to Walt Disney World. September is one of my favorite times of the year to visit Walt Disney World. OK, to be honest, every time of year is my favorite time of year to hang out with Mickey, but September really is a great time to visit.

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will receive a new set of MagicBands. If you'd like to bring your active MagicBands and use them that is an option for you. On my last trip, I brought my active MagicBand with me and so I did not need to receive one at check-in. You can use My Disney Experience to see and manage your active MagicBands.

    Andrea, one of the best experiences of a September vacation to Walt Disney World, I think, is the Epcot International Food & Wine Festival. You'll be visiting while the Festival is taking place, and I hope you get a chance to take in all the delicious foods and events.

    Enjoy your Disney!

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
