    We purchased upgraded magic bands for our trip to WDW. We already received them but, due to Covid, we had to cancel the trip. Will I be able to use these bands for a future trip...whenever that might be?

    Hey there, Mary! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! 

    Like you, we too have canceled an upcoming trip to Disney World. While it is certainly no fun to put a magical trip on hold, there is certainly nothing better than looking ahead to a future one! Given that you purchased upgraded MagicBands for your upcoming trip, those are yours to keep! They can certainly be used during future trips, as long as they remain linked to the original Ticket holder via your My Disney Experience account! All prior MagicBands and Cards remain active until they are deactivated within the account. Many people have favorite MagicBands that they use time and time again! MagicBands have a battery inside that cannot be replaced, and have a life span of 2-5 years. For more information on this, check out this amazing answer from my co-panelist, Shantel! 

    Mary, did you know that your MagicBands will be your key to all of your Vacation magic? You will be able to make purchases within Walt Disney World Resort and enter the Theme Parks with just a tap of the wrist! My family loves the feeling of freedom associated with being able to walk out the door of our Disney Resort Hotel with just this magical “Mouseketool” on our wrists, ready to embark on a day of incredible adventures! I hope you are able to experience that feeling for yourself very soon.

    Meanwhile, if we can help you again in any other way, just say the word -- it would be our pleasure! 

    Wishing you many magical memories,
