    I have some older Magic bands (2.0) is there a place to test the batteries at Disney Springs? I know the bands will still work at the gate, but I'd like to know if the battery works for the ride photos and such.

    Hi Patti!

    I truly love the convenience of MagicBands during my Walt Disney World vacation.  It's so much easier than pulling out my park tickets, room key or credit cards when needed.  Just a tap of the MagicBand and you're done!

    Guest Relations in Disney Springs can surely check your MagicBand battery for you.  They have touch points there where they can see if they are still working.  The general rule is they will last for about 2 years, however, I still have a few original MagicBands that are still ready to play. 

    If you find that your MagicBands no longer hold power, you can hop right over to World of Disney to pick up new ones if you'd like.  The new MagicBand+ is so much fun and interactive throughout the parks.  They will actually vibrate and light up along with some of the nighttime spectacular shows!  My kids love the surprise vibration when we are walking past an interactive feature in the parks.  So fun!

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
