    Can I take the puck out of an old magic band and replace it with the puck from my magic band plus

    Hi there Carissa,

    Welcome to planDisney! Don’t you just love adding a splash of Disney on your wrist by way of a MagicBand? Over the years I’ve collected quite a few and while most are solid colors, I like to take the puck out and swap it with another for a bit of fun and a pop of color. With the introduction of MagicBand+, I’ve acquired one or two and have a little collection. The MagicBand+ has all of the features of the previous model (allows touch point access for theme park entry, touch point access for Lightning Lane, tap for Disney PhotoPass Photos and if you are a Disney Resort Collection hotel Guest, you can unlock your room door as well as charge purchases and dining to the credit card in your account) but also lights up and uses haptics at various locations and shows around Walt Disney World Resort. You can also use your MagicBand+ when virtual bounty hunting in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge at Disney’s Hollywood Studios

    Like you, I wondered if it was possible to interchange the MagicBand pucks with those of the MagicBand+ but unfortunately, the two pucks are not compatible. The MagicBand+ puck is slightly larger and more rounded than its predecessor. If you are looking for a great selection of MagicBand+, I highly recommend heading to Disney's Pin Traders or World of Disney at Disney Springs. If you’re heading to Magic Kingdom, The Emporium carries many different styles as well. 

    Carissa, I hope this information is helpful to you. Thanks for stopping by planDisney, please visit again with any other vacation planning questions!

    See ya real soon,
