    I have magic bands from a couple of years ago that were never used. We had to cancel. WDW told us to keep the bands. So have any upcoming trip and wanted to use the magic bands. Do you think they'll work and can be linked, not staying in Disney hotel.

    Hey there, Cheryl! Thank you for allowing us to help you plan your upcoming Disney vacation. 

    Even though you weren't able to use your MagicBands for your last Disney vacation, you can still use those for your upcoming trip. 

    To make sure those MagicBands are still linked to your My Disney Experience, just log into your account, click on My MagicBands and Cards and your MagicBands should be listed there. If those bands are not listed try and link them to your account. 
    If the MagicBands are linked to your account, the word "active" should be written next to the MagicBand. If you need to link the MagicBand to your account, scroll to the bottom of the page and click "Link". Follow the prompts, flip over your MagicBand and enter the unique code from the bottom of the MagicBand. If you find that you have a bit of trouble linking them, please call 407-939-4357 and have a Cast Member assist you. 

    Cheryl, also remember that you will be able to use your MagicBand to enter the theme parks, FastPass+ lines, and PhotoPass pictures. Since you will be staying off property this time, the ability to make purchases with your MagicBand won't be available. 

    Have the most magical time, Cheryl, and if you have more questions, please stop by and visit with us again soon. We are here to help! 

    Happy planning,
