    We have MagicBands from March of 2015. Do think they will still be fully functional in July of this year?

    Hi, Nikki!

    Magic Bands usually last about 2 years, so you should be able to use the ones from your previous Disney vacation. Just make sure that the Magic Band is still linked to your My Disney Experience account and is activated. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort for your next vacation, you can choose to decline the complimentary Magic Bands that are offered with your stay and use the ones you already have. 

    Also, if your Magic Band malfunctions while you are using them, you can purchase a new one at any of the 4 theme parks, activate it, and link to your My Disney Experience account!

    Happy planning!
