    may we use old Disney Bands. They are 4 years old

    Thanks for being a part of our world here at planDisney, Lynn! 

    I’m ecstatic that you’re planning your return to The Most Magical Place on Earth! MagicBands are some of the best gadgets and gizmos, and I should know; I’ve got plenty! They help make your vacation easier by allowing you to unlock your Disney Resort hotel room, enter the theme parks (with valid admission linked), access Lightening Lane reservations, and so much more!

    As long as your MagicBands are active, they are good to go, Lynn. To check, open the My Disney Experience Mobile App and select the three horizontal lines on your screen's bottom right. Then, select MagicBands and More, and under each member of your party, you should see View MagicBands to select and view which MagicBands are still active. I have MagicBands that are four years old that work just fine. 

    However, I do want to tell you that according to the Help Center, “battery health may limit your ability to receive Disney PhotoPass attraction videos and select attraction photos with MagicBand.” When this happened to me, I  went towards the front of the park, where they usually have an area for missing Disney PhotoPass photos, and a Cast Member helped load my missing pictures onto my account. You could also call Disney Photopass Guest Support team for help. 

    If you’re considering upgrading to the new series of MagicBand, the MagicBand+ comes with the features we all love and then some! With some interactive elements, Guests can become part of the story! These are rechargeable and come in a variety of magical designs.

    We can’t wait to welcome you to the magic, Lynn! Have an enchanting visit.
