    How do I know if magic band still works. It is 3 years old

    Hiya Sherry,

    Welcome to planDisney! I recently moved to Texas, and when I was unpacking, I found an entire box of MagicBands! We have so many of them from over the many years of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth that it is a little overwhelming. The good news is that no matter when you last used or purchased your MagicBand, as long as it is linked to your My Disney Experience account, you can reuse it for every trip.

    So let’s see if we can’t figure out if your MagicBand is still associated with your My Disney Experience account and ready to use in a few days! First, log into your My Disney Experience Account. Once you’ve done that:

    - Select “My MagicBands and Cards” from the drop-down menu.
    -You will know you are in the right place when you see Mickey Mouse or the character associated with your account (mine is Princess Tiana) and your name.
    -Beside your name should be an arrow; click it!
    -Every MagicBand or card associated with your account will appear.
    -Compare the MagicBand ID with the MagicBand you plan to use to ensure it is on that list.

    If you see your MagicBand, you should have no issue using that MagicBand for your trip. All MagicBands and cards on your account have your Theme Park tickets magically accessible! If you don’t see your MagicBand on that list and would still like to use it, scroll to the bottom of the page and “link” your MagicBand to your account.

    I hope this was helpful and you are ready for your upcoming trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Have the most fantastic time, and let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

    Happy Planning,

    Ashley F.
