    Can magic bands go though airport sercuity?

    Hello, Carolyn!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am a huge fan of MagicBands and never had an issue going through airport screenings. The machines will not harm the band, and if I spill coffee on it as I'm running to catch a flight I don't have to worry, as they are also waterproof! If you prefer not to wear it through security, just slip the MagicBand into your purse and put it back on once you retrieve your items after security screening. Keep in mind that if you plan to use Disney's Magical Express to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you need to have your MagicBand accessible so it can be scanned upon arrival at the Terminal B1 check-in desk. 

    I hope this helps and you have a magical vacation! Please let us know if you have additional questions!

    Happy Planning!
