    We have MagicBands from our 2021 Disneyworld visit. Will they still work this month?

    Hey there, Mike, and welcome to planDisney!

    When I snap a Disney MagicBand onto my wrist, I instantly get giddy. It means that I’m about to tap into the magic of the Disney Parks. Let’s get into if your older MagicBand will work on your next visit. 

    At the moment, both MagicBands+ and the older MagicBands are fully supported at Walt Disney World Resort. Although it has been said that the older MagicBand has a battery life of up to two years, they are known to last even longer. There’s no way to check if it’s operational while at home, but let me tell you: I still use MagicBands from 2019 and earlier while at the Disney Parks and I visit very often. So, don’t lose hope! Your 2021 MagicBands are most likely good to go. 

    If you arrive and you find that they don’t work, you can purchase new MagicBands+ in shops around property. You can also add your theme park tickets to your digital wallet via the My Disney Experience App. I even like to use my Disney MagicMobile-supporting Apple Watch to access the theme parks and Lightning Lanes

    By the way, consider checking out the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. Try yummy eats like the Seasonal Fruit Parfait (it’s DOLE Whip on a whole new level), walk among butterflies, and party at the Garden Rocks Concert Series. Mike, feel free to revisit me here at planDisney if you have additional questions about your upcoming visit.

    Magic always,
