    Magic band question - can you link tickets to older magic bands or are the magic band 2 the only type of band that can be used currently?

    Hello Sara, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I absolutely love MagicBands! This stylish and wearable piece of technology will make your next trip to the Walt Disney World Resort less stressful and a lot more fun. Your MagicBands are connected to the information in your My Disney Experience account. Theme park tickets, FastPass+ selections, PhotoPass Photos, and access to your hotel room account, if you are staying at a select on Disney Resort Hotel, are all connected to your My Disney Experience account. You can access this information with the tap of your MagicBand.

    MagicBands have a single use battery that only lasts for around 2 years. Unfortunately, the battery cannot be replaced in the original style of MagicBand or the MagicBand 2. I love to collect limited edition, special event MagicBands. Most of them are over 2 years old and have become part of my collection of memories. Guests of select Disney Resort Hotels receive complimentary MagicBands with each hotel stay. If you are not planning to stay on Disney property but would like the convenience of using a MagicBand, you can purchase them online at Shop Disney Parks or directly from the mobile app. You can link a new MagicBand to your My Disney Experience account in a few quick steps. I hope that helps to answer your question. If you need any more help before your next visit, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
