    Can we use magic bands more than once, meaning if I use them for this year's vacation; can they be loaded for next year's vacation or are they a one time vacation use?

    Dear Jeremy,

    Thanks for reaching out to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your MagicBands question.

    You are correct in that MagicBands can be used multiple times and for multiple trips!

    At a certain point, the internal battery will run out and then they will stop working, but in that worst case scenario, someone at the Parks would be able to get you a new one immediately at Guest Services. I have heard that the batteries last for 2-3 years, but I can't confirm that yours would last that long. 

    Moms Panel tip - The new second generation of MagicBands are shipping now and accessories can be added for those Guests who might not want to wear a wristband or who might prefer to change their MagicBand setup more frequently.

    Hope that helps!
