    Can we use our magic bands from our 2020 trip for our upcoming trip 4/2023?

    Hello Lori!

    I am excited you are planning a Walt Disney World vacation for April 2023! There is so much to see and do at Walt Disney World! I have over 50 of the previous styles of MagicBands. I am excited about the new MagicBand+, officially launched on July 27th, 2022, for Walt Disney World! I have received the MagicBand+ that I ordered from shopDisney. I can't wait to use it at Walt Disney World!

    The previous style of MagicBands will still work along with the new MagicBand+ (the MagicBand+ will do all the things that a MagicBand did and much more). So you could bring the previous MagicBands that you received in 2020. Typically, the batteries in the two earlier generations of MagicBands can last over two years or more, according to my experience. If you bring your MagicBands from 2020 and the battery has been depleted, you could purchase new MagicBands at the stores in the Resorts, theme parks, and Disney Springs. The new MagicBand+ is rechargeable with a USB cord included with each MagicBand+. Suppose you decide to purchase MagicBand+ for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. In that case, you can use both the MagicBands that you already have and the new MagicBand+ as long as they are all linked to your My Disney Experience Account and are active in your My Disney Experience Account.

    I hope that your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation is magical!
