    Can we re-use old Magic Bands?

    Hello Melissa, and welcome to planDisney!

    It looks like you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort in just a few days. You must be so excited to join in the 50th Anniversary Celebration! So many new experiences were created just for the celebration. Be sure to be on the lookout for Disney’s Fab 50 Character Collection. There are 50 golden sculptures on display in all 4 theme parks, of your favorite Disney Characters.

    I am happy to tell you that you can re-use old MagicBands. However, they cannot be transferred to another person. Once they are linked to your My Disney Experience account, they must continue to be used by the original owner. Any new plans you create in your My Disney Experience account can be accessed with your MagicBand. This includes theme park tickets, park pass reservations, Disney Resorts Collection hotel room reservations, dining reservations, Memory Maker and Genie+, and Lightning Lane selections.

    Keep in mind, the battery in a MagicBand has a life of approximately 2 years. I have MagicBands that I have been using for almost 4 years without any issue. Although, I do take advantage of any trip to the Walt Disney World Resort to add to my MagicBand collection. You will find MagicBands on sale in most retail shops of all theme parks and Disney Springs. You can also find them for sale in the retail shops of Disney Resorts Collection hotels. You can have more than one active MagicBand on your account. In fact, I have about 15 active MagicBands on My Disney Experience account. A new MagicBand will need to be linked to your My Disney Experience account. It only takes a few minutes to link them in the mobile app and Cast Members are always happy to assist you. I hope this helps with your last-minute plans.

    If you have any more questions please come back and visit us here at planDisney.

    See ya real soon,
