    We have magic bands from previous visits. How do I tie our magic bands to our purchased tickets for an upcoming trip?

    Welcome to planDisney, Amy!  We are glad you brought your question to us today.

    MagicBands are my favorite vacation accessories!  They make it so easy to access theme park admission, link Disney PhotoPass photos to my account, and even unlock the door to my Disney Resort Hotel room.

    You are welcome to reuse your MagicBands from a previous visit as long as they are in working order.  Battery life is estimated to be about 2 years, although I have some older MagicBands that still work just fine.  As long as your tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience account, you won't need to do anything special to use your MagicBands.  Any and all active MagicBands linked to your profile will work with your new tickets.  I have quite a collection of MagicBands, so I will often bring a few with me when visiting Walt Disney World Resort so I can coordinate with my outfit or choose the color or pattern that suits my mood that day.  To check if your MagicBands are active, go to "MagicBands & Cards" in your My Disney Experience account (in the mobile app, you'll find "MagicBands & Cards" under "My Profile".)  You'll be able to manage the status of all MagicBands and Cards that are assigned to you.

    Due to limited theme park capacity, attendance is currently being managed with the Disney Park Pass system.  All Guests must have a Disney Park Pass reservation as well as valid admission for theme park entry.

    I hope that helps!  Please stop by planDisney again with any additional questions you may have.  Enjoy your visit!
