    How will I know if my MagicBands from a previous trip are still working? We got them in Sept 2014 and our next trip is July 2016 ... almost 2 years. They are active in MyDisneyExperience but I am worried about the battery.

    Hey, Wendy!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I love helping fellow Georgians have a spectacular time at my second home at Walt Disney World Resort or in your case...Neverland.

    I have MagicBands that are over 2 years old and they still work but the word from the Cast Members I have spoken with over the years is that they last about 24 months. Of course, yours may last longer or shorter than this.

    My suggestion is to bring your MagicBand with you in July and take it to the ticket window or Guest Relations desk at Disney Springs (Town Center) or any theme park and ask them to test your MagicBand. If it registers with their system then you are good to go. If not then they can help you purchase a new one or give you a hard ticket to use in the theme parks

    Disney Dad Tip: If you do need a new MagicBand you can choose to customize one in the theme parks or Disney Springs at D-Tech On Demand kiosks. These. Are. Awesome!

    Wendy, remember Neverland is the second to the right, and straight on till morning.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
