    My magic band will be 5 years old when I travel in 2022. Can I replace the battery? Can I buy a new DVC magic band?

    Hiya Susan!
    Thank you for stopping by planDisney, where we love helping Guests like you with answers to their Disney vacation questions. I am so glad that you decided to stop by, and it would be my pleasure to help provide you with an answer. I love hanging on to and reusing my favorite MagicBands, so I completely understand why you would want to ensure your 5-year-old MagicBand will still work when you visit Walt Disney World Resort next year.

    If your MagicBand is still in working condition, you can continue to use it when you visit Walt Disney World! Since your MagicBand is five years old, you may find that you do not have access to all the MagicBand benefits, such as Disney PhotoPass videos and select Disney PhotoPass attraction photos. Unfortunately, MagicBands are equipped with a single-use battery that cannot be replaced.

    You can find some adorable MagicBand options in select retail locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort and through shopDisney.com. Some Disney Vacation Club MagicBands are available for prearrival order through your My Disney Experience account.

    I hope this information helps you with your planning process as you look forward to your next holiday in The Most Magical Place on Earth next year! Please remember here at planDisney, we are always eager to help answer your vacation questions, so stop back by any time.
