    Do I have to get new Magic Bands for my upcoming visit in September? We have 2 each already.

    Hey, Patricia! MagicBands are truly magical little devices to use during your upcoming Disney Resort Hotel stay. They can be used to unlock your guest room door, access your FastPass+ selections, and even pay for merchandise throughout the Resort! You are welcome to reuse any active MagicBand you have connected to your profile in My Disney Experience. The batteries within them tend to last around two years, so go ahead and bring it if you think it may still work. No worries if the battery has lots its pixie dust, as you can pick up one at the Front Desk.

    When you complete Online Check-In, just click the box to decline MagicBands for the trip. It is that simple! I must give you a heads up, though, as there is a new option for MagicBands related to Disney Resort Hotel stays. Guests can now choose to upgrade the complimentary classic solid-color designs offered. The selections are filled with all kinds of themed MagicBands, which can be purchased during the optional upgrade at a reduced rate from the retail value. The available selection does vary, sometimes even throughout the day, so keep an eye out for any that may catch your eye.

    Thanks so much for stopping by with your question and please let us know if you have any others as you continue to plan your pixie-dusted adventures!
