    I ordered our MGic bands on October 16,22. I am reading in the Disney guidebook that they have a charging cord. Mine don’t. How will these work.

    Hi there, Deborah - welcome to planDisney!

    Aren't MagicBands, well ... magic?! Like a little bit of pixie dust right on your wrist that can magically unlock doors, welcome you to a Theme Park, capture your PhotoPass memories, and so much more!

    Standard MagicBands are not rechargeable and thus do not come with a charging cord, however, the brand new MagicBand+ is rechargeable and thus does include a charger. So, if you ordered regular MagicBands, there shouldn't be a charging cord included. If you ordered MagicBand+, there should be one charging cord included for each MagicBand+ you ordered.

    If you're not sure which model you have, the easiest way to check is by looking at the back. A MagicBand+ will have two metal circles towards the left side where the charger makes contact, as well as a small gray button in the lower right. If you don't see these on the backs of your MagicBands, you don't need to worry about a charger at all! Standard MagicBands supposedly have a battery lifespan of about two years, but I have some that are quite a bit older that still work great!

    If you are indeed missing chargers from a MagicBand+ order, I suggest you reach out to a Cast Member via phone for assistance. The great news is that they should be able to either send you a replacement or provide one once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. Speaking of arriving, you're visiting during October, and that means there is some extra spooky fun available for your crew to enjoy! If you haven't experienced Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party yet, this would be a great year to do so!

    I hope this information was helpful - please let us know if you have any additional questions as you continue planning!
