    I have magic bands from 2015. we are heading to Hollywood studios Orlando in July . Do I need newer bands?? are these outdated?

    Hey there, Mary! Welcome back to planDisney! I'm so happy that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question. I just love chatting Disney with my pals, pal!

    I have a HUGE collection of MagicBands. Ever since MagicBands were first introduced, I've gotten a new one (or two!) on every vacation to Walt Disney World Resort. When I'm enjoying my magical time at The Most Magical Place on Earth, I choose my MagicBand according to the day's theme park and outfit. I'm so excited to hear that you will be visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios in just one month, and I'm thrilled to answer your MagicBand question today!

    I think you will be happy to hear that as long as your MagicBands are still active and in good working condition, even oldies but goodies should work! To see if your MagicBand is active, just log in to your My Disney Experience account, click "My MagicBands and Cards," scroll down to Guests, and click the little arrow to the left of your Disney character avatar. If it says "Active" next to your MagicBand, you should be good to go! Happy MagicBand tapping, my friend!

    What if you get to the turnstiles at Disney's Hollywood Studios and your MagicBand does not work for some reason? Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" It's time to activate Plan B! Okay, let's chat about Plan B. Log in to your My Disney Experience app, tap the three-line menu icon, tap the Disney MagicMobile tile and follow the simple steps to download your Disney MagicMobile Pass to your smartphone's digital wallet. Once your Pass is safely tucked into your digital wallet, you can use this for your park admission, Lightning Lane entry and more with just the swipe of your phone! How cool is that?!

    I hope this was helpful, Mary, and I hope you have the most magical and memorable time at Disney's Hollywood Studios! Please stop by any time with any planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
