    How long do MagicBands work? If I buy one now, will it still work 3,4, 5 years from now?

    Hi, Debra!

    As the MagicBands are relatively new technology, their actual lifespan is still just a good guess by anyone. I have my original MagicBand, which is probably 2+ years old is still going strong. While I have never been adventurous enough to crack open a MagicBand, I have read that there is a watch battery inside so those will have a limited lifespan, but just how long is not known.

    I am confident that you can get 2-3 years use out of a MagicBand, after that we will just have to see. I am hoping that you and your MagicBand get to experience many magical vacations for years to come!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
