    How to properly store MagicBand+ long-term. What is the battery advice? Deplete? Turn off band with charge? I know it is very specific so any specific help/answer is appreciated! I want to maximize my band's long-term battery life.

    Hello Stan!

    I am excited about the new MagicBand+, launched on July 27th, 2022! I ordered two MagicBand+ from shopDisney, and I can't wait to use them at Walt Disney World!

    The new MagicBand+ is rechargeable with a USB charging cord that is included with the MagicBand+, so you will be able to recharge it when the battery gets low. You will have to pair your MagicBand+ to your mobile phone and link it to your My Disney Experience App. The battery on the MagicBand+ is designed to last 1 to 3 days on a full charge depending on park usage, but it is recommended to charge it overnight before your planned park days. You can check the battery status of your MagicBand+ through the My Disney Experience App or by the colors displayed on the MagicBand+ (you press the button on the back of the band, and it will light up a color to give you the current battery status). The good news is that the new MagicBand+ should be able to be used for many years as long as it is recharged before use. Since the MagicBand+ is so new, there is not much information on long-term battery usage, so I recommend letting your MagicBand+ battery discharge naturally over time after your Walt Disney World vacation. Then charge your MagicBand+ before your next Walt Disney World vacation begins and every night during your vacation to maximize the battery life over time.

    I hope that your next Walt Disney World vacation is incredible!
