    can you still use your magic band or do you have to use a magic band+ now

    Hi Nancy and welcome back to planDisney!

    MagicBands are such a fun way to add a little extra magic to your Walt Disney World vacation!  They are the most convenient way to enter the theme parks, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, make purchases for merchandise and Disney dining and open your Disney Resort hotel room door.  There is no need to dig around in your bag or pockets for various cards to do all of these things.  I love it!

    Any type of MagicBand that you have will work at Walt Disney World, as long as there is still battery life.  The newest version, MagicBand+, has extra capabilities like lighting up and buzzing around the theme parks with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection and during select nighttime spectacular shows.  You can also use it to play Batuu Hunters in Galaxy's Edge at Disney's Hollywood Studios.

    MagicBands and MagicBand+ are available for purchase in many gift shops around the theme parks and the Disney Resort hotels or you can pre-purchase them at a discount if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel.  To customize a pre-arrival MagicBand or MagicBand+, head to your My Disney Experience account online and click on "My MagicBands and Cards".  You should be prompted at the top to make selections for your upcoming trip.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
