    Hi! Can I use magic bands from 5 years ago? I don’t plan on doing memory maker.. they still be active in my MDE…

    Welcome to planDisney, Sarah! You are going to have a blast during your vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort next month! Thanks for sending us your planning question. 

    MagicBands are my favorite accessory when I visit “The Most Magical Place on Earth” because they help simplify what I need to carry to the theme parks. You can enter the theme parks, make charges and even open your Disney Resort Collection hotel room with a tap of your band!

    I’m happy to report that you will be able to use your band again. The battery in the band seems to be eternal, so as long as the sensors in the parks can read it, you can use it again and again. Just in case, you can always make a Disney MagicMobile pass on your My Disney Experience app, should your band stop working. You can also ask for an admission card at a ticket window.

    If you’re looking to add another MagicBand before your visit, shopDisney has so many options, categorized by character and color. There are so many fun styles!

    Sarah, I hope this information is helpful to you. Please feel free to come back to see us if you have any more planning questions before your upcoming visit. It’s always our pleasure to help you with all the details of your magical vacation!
