    I have a magicband from 3 years ago. I will be visiting Disney in 2023. Will my current magic band work in 2023?

    Hello there, Sherry!

    It is a pleasure to welcome you to planDisney. You have come to the right place for magical Disney vacation planning tips and advice!

    I have recently visited the Walt Disney World Resort, and I was able to use a MagicBand that I purchased five years ago. Before using it, I signed in to my Disney account and visited My Magic Bands and Cards to confirm that it was still active. Before starting my day at the parks, I stopped by Front Desk at my Disney Resort hotel and asked Cast Members to verify if it was still working.

    I was able to use it to enter the parks, but Cast Members warned me that since it was an older MagicBand, its ability to receive Disney PhotoPass videos and photos at select attractions could be limited. I decided not to risk losing my pictures and videos and purchased a new MagicBand. MagicBands are available for purchase at several locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort and online at

    Thank you for sending us a great question. I hope this helps you while planning and that you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
