    How do I know if our magic bands from two years ago will still be working when we go to Disney world next year? Is there a way to test the battery?

    Hello Robert and welcome back to planDisney!  We're so happy to see you here again.

    I have a whole chain of multi-coloured MagicBands from my previous visits to Walt Disney World Resort, in fact, I have so many that they've almost grown into a stand-alone collection of Disney memorabilia!  I'm always keen to add to that ever-growing MagicBand collection, but I also do love to reuse still functioning MagicBands whilst enjoying a Disney trip. 

    To the best of my current knowledge, I don't believe there is a way to test if a MagicBand battery is still functional whilst still at home, but a quick conversation with Cast Members at any Guest Relations location at Walt Disney World Resort should be able to help solve that mystery!

    Even though I have so many different colour-ways and pixie-dusted designs of MagicBand to choose from, I still can't resist taking a peek at all the newest MagicBands on shopDisney or from select Merchandise Stores at Walt Disney World Resort.  Plus, I choose to take my fashion advice from the incredible Edna Mode because like she wisely says, "I never look back darling, it distracts me from the now!"

    And lastly Robert, I thought you might find this Information about Radio Frequency (RF) technology contained in MagicBands to be both a useful and interesting link for your family.

    I hope I've been able to offer you a little insight into planning towards a visit to Walt Disney World Resort that's sure to be practically perfect in every way!  If you did have any further enquiries, please do feel free to pop back to planDisney to ask us another question.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
