    1. Can we reactivate magic bands from 2018? 2. What documentation do we need to get the disability pass? My mom has a lung condition and requires oxygen. 3. Will more tickets for the Boo Bash be released?

    Hi Krystle! 

    Multiple questions are a planDisney panelists love language! Let's get you some answers.

    MagicBands from 2018 are past the tail end of the typical two year battery life, but I have had bands work past the two year mark so it's worth a try. You may reactivate yours, then test it on your resort room door or to purchase a Diet Coke to see if the battery is still a go. To check if your MagicBand is still active, hover over My Disney Experience on the Walt Disney World website, and click on "My Cards and Magic Bands". A list of any active bands will pop up. If current one is not listed, return to the My Cards and Magic Bands and click on "Link" at the bottom of the page and then enter your MagicBand number. 

    No documentation is needed to access the Disney Disability Access Service (DAS). In fact, if your mother uses a wheelchair or scooter, queues can accommodate these conveyances and no action is needed. If your mother's disability prevents her from waiting in line, you will need to visit Guest Services at the first park you visit and your mother must be present. A Cast Member will assist you through the registration process and take your mom's picture. Expect this process to take a good ten minutes plus wait time, but it only needs to be completed one time. Once issued, your DAS is good for your entire trip at all parks. Sometime this fall, Disney will begin offering this process through a video call ahead of your visit, but no start date has been announced.

    DAS is now fully digital, so no card or physical pass is used. At the attractions, a Cast Member will assist you and offer a return time, a special waiting area, or other accommodation. Once you have enjoyed a ride or show, you may use DAS to obtain a wait time for your next experience.

    A bit of boo hoo news about the Boo Bash. One of the benefits of attending a Disney After Hours Boo Bash is that attendance is limited, so tickets sales are capped. Once they have all been sold, no new ones are released. 

    Wishing you a wonderful adventure visiting Mickey!
