    How can I link new park tickets I purchased to an old but active Magic Band? Is Disney still using Magic Bands?

    Greetings Laura!

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney. I’ll be more than happy to help you link your new ticket to your account. 

    The answer is, yes! MagicBands are still being used in the parks and to enter your Disney Resort hotel. I have somewhat of a collection now. I tend to match my MagicBand to my Minnie Ears or outfit. It’s just another fun way to accessorize!

    What you will need to do, is log in to your My Disney Experience account. You will then select “My MagicBands & Cards”. After linking your new ticket you should see a list of your MagicBands right below that. Just make sure the MagicBand you are trying to use says “active” and you’re good to go. Keep in mind the lifespan of MagicBands is about 2 years. So if it’s been longer than that, you may want to purchase a new one

    I hope this helps, Laura. I can’t wait to hEAR all about your visit. Have a magical time!
