    We have Magic Bands from a trip we were planning in March 2020 to WDW. Obviously that didn't happen. Now we're planning a trip to Disneyland in September. Is it possible to use the old bands even though I don't think they were ever activated?

    Welcome to planDisney, Jessica!

    I'm sad to hear your planned trip to Walt Disney World Resort didn't happen due to the pandemic. How disappointing! Hopefully, having to postpone the magic will make your upcoming Disneyland Resort trip extra special.  

    With newly reimagined areas, like Mickey's Toontown and San Fransokyo Square, Disneyland Resort is the place to visit! Make sure you ride Mickey & Minnie's Runaway Railway and grab a bite to eat at Aunt Cass Café. I'm really excited for you, Jessica!

    Unfortunately, the version of MagicBand you have only works at Walt Disney World Resort. Therefore, if you have a MagicBand from 2020, you won't be able to use it on your Disneyland trip.  However, maybe this is a convenient excuse to upgrade to MagicBand+. The new MagicBand+ works at both Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort. You'll be able to enjoy some awesome features, like haptic vibrations and colorful lights. You can even test your skills as a bounty hunter by playing Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters

    I hope that's clarifying, Jessica. Thanks so much for stopping by planDisney. Come and see us again!
