    Is it possible to get a spare Disney band charger? We have the band my husband used 2 years ago but can’t find the charger.

    Hey there, Deborah! With your trip so close, it's time to go from planning mode to packing mode. It won't be long before you are driving through the gates with Mickey and Minnie welcoming you to the Most Magical Place on Earth. Then it is time for my favorite: Vacation Mode!

    I'm glad you came to planDisney with this question. I was at Walt Disney World Resort earlier this week and picked up a new MagicBand+. They did have replacement charging cables available. They were in small rectangular boxes on display with the MagicBand+ selections. I would check Disney's Character Carnival or Thimbles & Threads when you arrive at Disney's BoardWalk.

    If you are unable to find one immediately, Hakuna Matata! A charged battery unlocks a lot of MagicBand+ power, but it is not required for many functions. Even with a depleted battery, your husband will be able to use his MagicBand+ to access his tickets to enter a theme park; redeem Virtual Queues and Lightning Lane entries; scan for pictures with PhotoPass photographers and rides with screens to tap; and charge food and merchandise purchases to your resort bill. One thing I learned on my recent trip: you have to be checked in and have your Disney Resorts Collection room assigned before you can use your MagicBand+ for room charges. But once you have your room number, he can use his MagicBand+ to charge his charger to his room. Charge on!

    Once juiced up, his MagicBand+ will have all the haptics and lights that make this band so much fun. My favorite: the heartbeat when approaching the Doom Buggies at Haunted Mansion. Eerie!

    I am excited, Deborah, to see your trip is so close after all your planning. I'm positive your time at Walt Disney World is going to be electric! Please stop back by planDisney for answers to any other questions, free of charge!

    To infinity and beyond!
