    I noticed how magic bands aren't complimentary anymore. We have old bands from several years ago. Will these work when we visit in June?

    Hello Rebecca and may I wish you a very warm welcome to planDisney!  We are so pleased to see you here with such a great question for us today.

    Oh boy!  I have some wonderful news to share with you, Rebecca!  Absolutely yes, older, yet still functioning MagicBands most certainly can be reused on return vacations to Walt Disney World Resort.  In fact, I have some favourite MagicBands from a few yEARs ago that I found were still working okay that last time I visited the most magical place on earth. 

    The one thing I will say is that you may find older MagicBands might not function as well as the newer more up-to-date MagicBands with all the latest advances in technology at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    My best advice would be to definitely bring your old MagicBands with you to Walt Disney World Resort next month, and try them out before considering purchasing any new ones.  After all, with just a little faith, trust, and pixie dust they could work really well for you!

    Guests can also utilise the power of the Disney MagicMobile Service with the My Disney Experience Mobile App and any eligible iPhones, Apple Watch or Google Pay enabled Android phones.  By using the clever features with the Disney MagicMobile Service, Guests are able to create a digital pass to link and access all their vacation entitlements.  And with a bibbidi bobbidi boo - it simply works just like magic!

    Rebecca, if you should have any further questions about vacationing within the magic and wonder of Walt Disney World Resort this coming June, then please do pop back any time to ask me another question.
