    I have MagicBands from a vacation we took in 2019 How do I know how much battery is left in the band

    Hey there, hi there, ho there, Diane and welcome to planDisney. Here you will find enchanting answers to the most interesting Walt Disney World Resort questions on the internet. Your magical March Mickey Mouse adventure is just around the corner and I know that Mickey and the rest of the Fab Five are excited to see you. Please say "hi" to Pluto from me.

    MagicBands are one of my favorite souvenirs. I must have over 50 from previous trips both in plain solid colors and those with decorative designs. Typically, MagicBand batteries last about 24 months depending on usage. I have tested a few of mine and they have lasted three years but I would not take that as the standard. Since yours is vintage I suggest taking it with you on your trip to test it out. At this time there is no home test.

    Once at Walt Disney World Resort, if you find that it does not work and you would like to replace it, there are many exciting new designs featuring characters, locations, and attractions. Also, check out the new MagicBand+. Since their debut, I really enjoy using my MagicBand+. With the ability to customize it with gesture recognition, color-changing LED lights, and vibrations, MagicBand+ creates an interactive experience in theme parks. Be sure to check out Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters (at Disneyland Park and Disney's Hollywood Studios) and the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection. These batteries are rechargeable.

    planDisney Pro Tip: You may order MagicBands before you arrive for your vacation from shopDisney. Check them out and see what selections they have there. You may find your new souvenir before you even leave your house.

    Diane, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
