    We have MagicBands from several years ago and I don’t think they have power. Can we recharge them and link them to our accounts to use at the parks when we visit later this year?

    Hey there Christopher, welcome to planDisney!  

    How exciting that you have a trip to the "Happiest Place on Earth" coming up soon.  Looks like you'll be visiting during Holiday Time at the Disneyland Resort, which is one of the most magical times of year!  

    You would be able to link your MagicBand+ to your Disneyland app to use but only if you currently have a MagicBand+.  MagicBand and MagicBand2 are not supported at the Disneyland Resort, so you would not able to link either of those to your Disneyland app.  

    However, if the MagicBands you have on hand are MagicBand+, then you are in good shape!  You can link them to your Disneyland app by navigating to the three horizontal bar line in the bottom right-hand corner of your app and then tap "MagicBand+."  Follow the steps to either assign a ticket to a currently loaded MagicBand+, or click the "+" in the upper right-hand corner to link your MagicBand+ to your account.  

    If you are in need of a MagicBand+ for your trip, you have several options!  If you'd prefer to have them in hand before your trip, you can browse shopDisney and purchase them in advance.  You could also purchase one from the shops after you arrive for your trip, we love to stop by the World of Disney store in Downtown Disney District on our arrival day!  They have every souvenir you could ever want, and they have a huge selection of MagicBand+.  

    I hope this information is helpful for your upcoming trip, Christopher!  Feel free to come back to planDisney and ask any other questions you may have.

    Have a magical day!
