    Can I order new pucks for the magic bands bc of the battery’s?

    Hi, Kim!  Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney!

    What did we ever do before MagicBands?  They sure do make it easy to access the magic during our Walt Disney World Resort vacations.  When you're wearing your MagicBand, all of the information in your My Disney Experience account, from theme park tickets to Disney Genie+ Lightning Lanes, is all right there on your wrist.  MagicBands make it quick and easy to link your Disney PhotoPass pictures to your My Disney Experience account, and they certainly come in handy when you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel.  You can use your MagicBand to unlock your resort hotel room door and to charge purchases to your room.

    The only downside to using MagicBands is that their batteries do start to lose power after a couple of years.  Unfortunately, replacement batteries or "pucks" are not sold for MagicBands.  However, in my opinion, this isn't really a downside at all.  There are always cute new MagicBand designs to purchase, so I like to change up my bands pretty often.  Have you seen the new MagicBand+?  These new bands have all of the MagicBand features that we've grown to love, plus some fun new interactive elements.  You can take a look at the selection of MagicBands online at shopDisney.  If you would prefer to purchase new MagicBands once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, they are sold in many retail locations.  If you are staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, be sure to look at the MagicBands and Cards section of your My Disney Experience account.  Disney Resorts Collection Guests have to ability to purchase MagicBands prior to their arrival at a discounted rate.

    Kim, if we can help answer any other questions as you get ready for your vacation, please don't hesitate to ask.  See ya real soon!
