    I purchased 4, 4 day park tickets for next week. We have magic bands that I was trying to connect or tickets to but they are a few years old. Can e use them?

    Hi Chuck and welcome to planDisney!

    How exciting that your Walt Disney World vacation is coming up in just a few days!  I'm sure you're getting all of your last minute plans and packing sorted out before you head down to Florida.

    MagicBands are a great way to add a little convenience to any Walt Disney World vacation.  You can use them to enter the theme parks, enter Lightning Lane attraction queues, open your Disney Resort hotel room door and pay for merchandise and Disney dining.  There is no need to dig around in your pocket or bag for various cards when the magic is right on your wrist.  Disney states the battery life of a MagicBand is about 2 years, but it's possible that yours from a few years ago still work.  The only way to find out is to test them when you arrive.  You can have the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel scan them or take them right to a theme park to see if they work at the touch points.  If they don't and you would like new ones, you can find them at pretty much any gift shop at the theme parks, Disney Resort hotels and Disney Springs.  There are so many different colors and designs to choose from and now there is a new version, MagicBand+, that provides extra fun!  MagicBand+ interacts with the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection by lighting up and vibrating when you walk by.  Some of the statues will even talk to you!  MagicBand+ also lights up and vibrates to the music of select nighttime spectacular shows like Happily Ever After at Magic Kingdom Park.

    Please stop back by and visit if you have any additional vacation planning questions.

    Have a magical day!
