    Will my magic band from 2018 still be usable for a trip in 2025, I'm looking primarily at park entry and opening my resort door. Thank you

    Hi Angela! Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    I currently use my favorite MagicBand that I purchased in 2017 and it is still going strong!  I plan on using this MagicBand for as long as I am able to.  I did reach out to a wonderful cast member to get an official response and the answer I received stated as long as your MagicBand is active in My Disney Experience, you should have no issues.  That being said, things could change prior to 2025 so you may want to check back with us as your arrival date nears to be sure the answer remains the same.

    As a backup plan, I would also like to point out that if you use the My Disney Experience Mobile App, you can access MagicBand features such as Disney MagicMobile Service for theme park entry and the Unlock Door feature to access your resort hotel room.

    Angela, as you anticipate and plan your vacation for 2025, I recommend following the Disney Parks Blog.  This is a great resource to read fun stories, upcoming enhancements and special announcements.  Please let us know if there is anything further we can assist you with.
