    We have Magic Bands from spring 2015. We also used them in 2016. Will they still work in late June of this year? We are not staying on property to receive new ones. Thank you!

    Hi Michelle!  Don't you just love the convenience of MagicBands?  It is so handy to be able to just tap them for Theme Park admission and entrance to FastPass+ queues.  Guests staying at a Disney Resort Hotel may also use their MagicBands to unlock their room door, access Disney Dining Plan entitlements, and charge purchases to their room.

    The estimated battery life of MagicBands is about 2 years.  However, I have some MagicBands from 2015 that still work just fine.  My guess is your bands may work for "Mickey to Mickey" touchpoints, as at the Theme Park entrance tapstyles and FastPass+ entrances.  You might have more trouble with the long-range capability, such as automagically linking your attraction photos and videos to your account.  I recommend bringing your MagicBands along and giving them a try.  If you find they are not working, you could always purchase new MagicBands and link them to your account.  There are so many cute styles available, and you can even design your own!

    I hope that helps!  Please feel free to visit the Moms panel again anytime if you have any additional questions.

    Enjoy your visit!
