    Adam from PA Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    Will a magicband + work like a regular magic band without ever being charged? Is there any reason I need to charge it if only using as a regular magicband?

    Hi Adam and welcome to planDisney!

    I love the convenience MagicBands bring to a Walt Disney World vacation!  There is no need to dig around in your pockets or bag for various cards when the magic is right on your wrist.  With a MagicBand, you can enter the theme parks, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, open your Disney Resort hotel room door and pay for merchandise and Disney Dining.

    The newest version, MagicBand+, has a lot of fun features!  They interact with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection at all of the theme parks as well as interact to select nighttime fireworks shows.  It's so cool to see it light up and vibrate to the music.  We take a lot of day trips since we live near Walt Disney World and often forget to charge our MagicBand+ bands, so I can tell you from experience that they work as a standard MagicBand when they haven't been charged.  You won't need to charge it unless you want to use the additional features.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
