    Do magic bands expire? Our last trip to WDW was in 2012. We have the "older" version of magic bands. Can we still use our old magic bands for our trip this Summer?

    Hi Tracy,

    Wow! You have the original MagicBands! I have one or two or three of those at my house as well! I totally loved the concept from the beginning and now I wish I had more MagicBands in my life.

    While you do not need a new MagicBand, I would be concerned the battery is still working. The life of the battery is about two years old so that is why I recommend getting a new one. If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort, you will get the new MagicBands. You can still go in and customize the band with colors and names for each person in your group.

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
