    Can I link existing magic bands to our hotel for an upcoming stay?

    Hi Deborah! 

    Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World! March 19 will be here before you know it! 

    You will be happy to hEAR that you can continue to use your existing MagicBand for your new Walt Disney World reservation! I used an older MagicBand on my last trip and everything worked out fine.

    Depending upon how long ago you used the MagicBand, and if it is still linked to your account through My Disney Experience, you may be able to begin using it right away. If you leverage online check-in, you can even bypass the front desk and go directly to your room using your existing MagicBand. 

    To see if your MagicBand is still linked to your account, visit the MagicBand section of My Profile. Through that link, you can activate or deactivate MagicBands or cards, report a lost MagicBand, and/or customize a new MagicBand before it is shipped. If your MagicBand isn't listed within My Profile, you can visit the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel front desk when you arrive. Simply ask a Cast Member to help you link your MagicBand to your account.

    You can also purchase a new MagicBand online prior to your visit if you are looking for something new. There is also a great selection of MagicBands at the parks and resorts. I particularly love the unique designs I was able to find at Disney Springs

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
