    We last visited in 2014 and don’t have our Magic bands anymore. We’ve booked our stay for the week after Thanksgiving with our AAA agent. Will we get sent new magic bands?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Debra! It's so exciting that you're planning your first trip back to Walt Disney World Resort since 2014. So much has changed in that time, like the addition of Pandora - The World of Avatar, Toy Story Land, and Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, but all of your familiar favorites are still there to enjoy! No matter how many times I visit The Most Magical Place On Earth, rounding the bend on Main Street U.S.A. and seeing Cinderella Castle still feels just as thrilling as it did the very first time.

    In the developments that have happened since your last trip, there have been a few changes to the look and feel of MagicBands. They still do all the things you remember, like give you access to your Theme Park tickets and FastPass+ selections at the tap of your wrist, but they have undergone a bit of a makeover. The great news is that if you're a guest of a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, a brand new MagicBand is included for each person who is named on your reservation! Even if you've used a travel agent to book your trip, you will still receive new MagicBands. You can use My Disney Experience to choose which colors you want and personalize them, and you can even upgrade to MagicBands that feature designs based on Disney Characters and the Disney Parks! I have to admit that I have a growing collection of MagicBands and I like to pack a few along with me when I'm going on vacation. You can use any MagicBand that's listed as active on your My Disney Experience account interchangeably, so it's really fun to have different ones to match your favorite outfits!

    Have a magical day, Debra!
