    I have magic bands from my last visit to WDW. Can we use our Magic Bands at Aluani?

    Aloha Richard!

    Welcome Home! In just a few short weeks you’ll be enjoying the lapping waves and glorious sunsets over the lagoon at Aulani, A Disney Resort and Spa! My family will be making our second visit to this amazing resort this summer with our Disney Vacation Club Membership, and I cannot wait.

    While officially, MagicBands are not currently in use at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, some Guests have reported success in using them for things such as their room door. Last year there was a little blurb on shopDisney that mentioned MagicBands would be coming soon to Aulani, but there has not been an official announcement or roll-out yet.

    MagicBands are linked to a specific Guest, not a particular trip or resort reservation. In theory, if you had an older MagicBand that was linked to you through your My Disney Experience Account, and your Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa reservation was also linked to you through the same Disney sign-in information, the MagicBand should connect you to your account and reservation information anywhere that MagicBands are set up for use.

    The trick will be that since MagicBands are not officially used at Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, they may or may not work for you. I have seen some unofficial reports that other visitors have had success opening their room door with a MagicBand brought from home, and others who brought theirs but couldn’t get them to work. I would not rely on using them since it is not officially supported at this time. I would keep your official room key handy even if you try to use your MagicBands as you don’t want to get locked out of your room!

    Mahalo for stopping by with your question. I hope you have a relaxing and magical visit to Aulani, A Disney Resort & Spa, Richard!

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
