    I have magic bands from 2015 that are still active. How do I pair my tickets with them?

    Hey Mark and welcome to planDisney. MagicBands, and now MagicBand+, are the coolest technology that allows you to enter Disney theme parks and attraction Lightning Lanes with a tap of the wrist. Truly incredible.

    As long as your tickets and 2015 MagicBands are linked and active in your My Disney Experience account you will be able to use your MagicBand for access.

    Please note that if your MagicBand battery no longer works (you will not find this out until you try and tap in at a theme park entrance or at your Disney Resort hotel front desk or hotel room door (check out Direct-to-Room Service)), then you will not be able to use it. You will need to purchase a new MagicBand or create a Disney MagicMobile pass, or use a Key to the World plastic card. MagicBand batteries are stated to last about 24 months but I have seen them last up to nine years depending on use so definitely bring it.

    planDisney Pro Tip: If you are dedicated to MagicBand technology then purchase a MagicBand+. The best part about this MagicBand is that it is rechargeable and you can use it for other adventures and experiences like Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters and can see when Constance's (the Bride in the attic of the Haunted Mansion) heart beats by the red pulses on the MagicBand+.

    Mark, please let me know directly if you have additional questions to help make your October Disney adventure more magical.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
