    I have magic bands from a previous trip that was canceled due to Covid. Can I still use them? I tried linking the but the codes aren’t working.

    Hey there, Kara!

    Thanks so much for stopping by. 

    My MagicBand is the one Mousekatool that I will not go to Walt Disney World Resort without! As a mom, I love not having to dig into my bag to get everyone's admission cards every time we enter the Lightning Lane for our favorite attractions. 

    Kara, your MagicBand is yours for life. I actually have MagicBands that are several years old that I still bring on our vacations!

    I would guess that the reason that you are having trouble linking your MagicBand is that it is already linked to your account. You see, if you purchased a MagicBand as a park of a resort reservation, even if that reservation was canceled, it came already assigned to you. 

    To check and make sure that your MagicBand is active, simply go into your My Disney Experience account. Hover over the "My Disney Experience" icon on the top right of your screen and click "MagicBands & Cards." On this page you should see your MagicBands. As long as they say "Active" you are good to go!

    I hope that this answered your question, Kara!

    Wishing you a magical vacation!
