    We have magic bands from a previous stay, about 4 years ago. Can we use the bands again on our trip in December?

    Hi John,

    Welcome to plan Disney! I am delighted to hEAR that you are planning a trip to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    My family adores MagicBands and love to get new ones for each visit. Having said that, we have re-used MagicBands in the past and have a few favorites that we take with us on each visit. Be cautious, however, MagicBands may last two years but I would imagine that yours may not be operative now. Although MagicBands are not required, they are super cute and, for us, make park entry and snagging Disney PhotoPass photos quite easy. We love ordering Pre-Arrival Exclusive MagicBands through My Disney Experience. You can also order MagicBands through shopDisney.

    In looking at your arrival date, I am so happy that you will be visiting during The World's Most Magical Celebration. I ordered special MagicBands that commemorate the occasion. As long as your vacation package is linked in My Disney Experience, you should see an option to Choose Your MagicBands. When you search the options, if using a computer, be sure to hover the cursor over the MagicBands to see pricing and details. 

    John, if you would prefer a free option, set up digital passes with Disney MagicMobile service. Once you get those passes setup, you can use your mobile phone to scan into the parks. If you do decide to order MagicBands, go ahead and place that order to be sure they are delivered to your home address prior to when you leave for your trip!

    Magic and memories,
