    Does my magic band come already charged?

    Hiya, Michelle! Welcome to planDisney!

    Can you believe you're only a few days away from your magical vacation at Walt Disney World Resort? I couldn't be more excited for you! You're really coming at a great time of year – you'll be able to enjoy The World's Most Magical Celebration before its last day on March 31, 2023 and the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival will be in full bloom by the time you arrive. Michelle, you're surely in for an extra special trip!

    Like you, I love picking just the right MagicBand for my trips to Walt Disney World Resort. To me, it feels a little like a magic wand that you wear! You'll be able to unlock the door to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room, make purchases and charge back to your room, and enter the parks. And when it comes to charging your MagicBands – well, it depends on which kind you have!

    If you purchased an original MagicBand (or MagicBand 2), this style does not need to be charged. When purchased through your My Disney Experience account, this is automatically linked with your account and reservations. But if you purchased a MagicBand+, this style does come with a charger! The recommendation is that you fully charge your MagicBand+ upon receipt of your band, and every night before use. This will make sure that the battery levels are optimally charged. You can also take a peek at how to set up your MagicBand+ for the first time

    I hope I was able to point you in the right direction! If anything else pops up, please write to us again. Remember – you've got a friend in me!

    See ya real soon!
