    Our magic bands are from 2014, we want to use those. Will they still work? Hiw do you link them to your reservation d tickets?

    Welcome to planDisney Chris Ann!

    It sounds like you are getting ready for a magical Walt Disney World vacation! Get out those mouse ears and let the countdown begin!

    I am sorry to say that all of the "pixie dust" is probably gone from your 2014 MagicBands. The battery in the bands has about a 2-year lifespan, so chances are those MagicBands, while a fun keepsake, probably will not work. 

    You have a few options! The most fun option is to buy the new MagicBand+ that became available this year. These bands are rechargeable, and have some fun interactive lights and vibrations when activated around the park. And, of course, there are plenty of adorable designs to choose from!

    The traditional MagicBands are still available for purchase but remember these will have about a 2-year timeframe that they will have battery power. 

    Another option? Use Disney MagicMobile Service on your phone. With it, your phone works just like your MagicBand. I even use MagicMobile on my Apple Watch which is super handy. 

    To link your theme park tickets, go to your My Disney Experience account where you can link your tickets. Remember that each guest must have a valid theme park ticket as well as a Theme Park Reservation to enter any park. 

    If you have any questions as you continue your magical vacation planning, stop back to your pals here at planDisney. We are happy to help!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
