    One more question. If my + band runs out of juice, will it still work to open the resort door or enter a park?

    Hi Timothy!

    The new MagicBand+ is such a fun upgrade from the previous MagicBand.  My kids love watching the colors dance on their wrist when we are watching some of the nighttime spectaculars.  I always get a little surprise when it buzzes while walking past the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues.

    I can tell you from experience that your MagicBand+ will still work if it isn't charged.  It took some getting used to for me to remember that they need to be charged (and to remember to bring the charging cable!), so I went my entire last trip without charging it and it was most definitely out of juice.  I was still able to open my Disney Resort hotel room, tap in for admission to the theme parks, make purchases and use it for Lightning Lane attractions, so no need to worry about that!

    If for some reason your MagicBand+ malfunctions during your stay, you can use your phone to open your room door and to enter the parks.  All you need is the My Disney Experience Mobile App as long as your Disney Resort hotel reservation and admission tickets are linked to your account.

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

    Have a magical day!
