    I have a magic band from when I went to Disney 4 years ago. Can I link it to a new ticket I bought for this year? How would I do that? Thank you!

    Welcome Back to planDisney Natalie!

    I have so many MagicBands in my house that I think I may be losing track. One of my family's favorite things to do when prepping for our trip is to pick out which MagicBand we will be taking with us. I can't wait for the new MagicBand+ to be released soon at Walt Disney World Resort. No matter when you last used or purchased your MagicBand, as long as it is linked in your My Disney Experience account, then you can reuse it for every trip.

    To doublecheck that your MagicBand is associated with your My Disney Experience Account:

    1. Log into your MyDisney Experience Account.
    2. Select "My MagicBands and Cards" from the drop-down menu.
    3. You should then see the character associated with your account (mine is Princess Tiana) and your name.
    4. Click the arrow beside your name, and every MagicBand or card associated with you will appear.
    5. Compare the MagicBand ID on the screen with the ID on the back of the MagicBand you plan to use to ensure that it is still associated with your account.

    If you see your MagicBand, then there is nothing else you need to do; your ticket will be magically accessible on your chosen MagicBand and any other MagicBand on that list. Not seeing your MagicBand? Scroll to the bottom of the page and "link" your MagicBand to your account.

    I hope this was helpful, and you are ready for your upcoming trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth! Have the most fantastic time, and let me know if there is anything else I can do to help.

    Happy Planning!
