    Is my n my magic band rechargeable?

    Hey there, hi there, Stephanie! Welcome to planDisney!

    Ever since they've been available at Walt Disney World, I have loved MagicBands. As I've collected them through the years, I definitely have favorite colors or themes that I like to wear during the holidays or for the EPCOT festivals. When it's finally time to say goodbye, it's a sad day for me.

    Unfortunately, the current MagicBands are not rechargeable. If you've had it for less than two years, you may still find it has a spark of magic left, but the battery lasts only about two years, so once the bands hit about the two-year mark, it may be time to retire.

    Not to worry, Stephanie. Your smartphone can be your key to the world! With the My Disney Experience app on your phone, you can unlock your resort room door, use it as your ticket to enter the theme parks, and even order a meal! We're talking Buzz Lightyear level technology.

    And Stephanie, there's a great big beautiful tomorrow when it comes to MagicBands. Later this year, MagicBand+ will be introduced, and boy oh boy, wait until you see what it can do! Interactive experiences, color-changing lights, and even more will excite and amaze with the new version. I don't know if it will be available for your quickly approaching trip, but you've got so much to look forward to!

    You can always bring your current MagicBand with you and test it out, Stephanie. Perhaps there is some pixie-dusted power left to get you through this next vacation. I hope you get one more use, for old time's sake!
