    Can you re-use a magic band for another trip? Also can you use them for fast passes and purchases even when you aren’t staying on Disney property?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jon! I’m happy to see that you have a plan in the works to visit the Walt Disney World Resort this Autumn!

    Any MagicBand linked to your My Disney Experience account can be used as many times as you’d like, whether you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel or off-site. There are just a few things to consider. First, you must have a valid theme park ticket linked to your account to be able to make your FastPass+ selections. Second, the battery in your MagicBand will last for about two years. After the battery runs out of juice, there’s really no way to replace it. That means you will have to use a newer band. But don't worry, the Shop Disney Parks online store has some great themed bands that you can purchase before your trip!

    If you’re staying off-site, you may make your FastPass+ selections 30 days before your expected visit. If you’re staying on-site, you may make your selections 60 days before your visit. It’s just one of the benefits of being a Walt Disney World Resort hotel guest! 

    Jon, using your MagicBand for purchases is another benefit of being a Disney Resort hotel guest. That’s because when you make a purchase with your MagicBand, those charges go directly to your Disney Resort hotel bill. When you stay off-site, the band is not able to send those charges to a credit card.

    I hope this information is helpful to you as you continue planning your stay! Please feel free to come back to see us soon!
