    Had room only reservation, and received magic bands in mail. Had to cancel reservation but magic bands are still linked to MDE. Do we keep them, send them back? Are they usable despite the cancellation?

    Hi Geneva, thanks for stopping by planDisney! I’m sorry to hear that you had to cancel your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    As you know, MagicBands are linked directly to your My Disney Experience account, so go ahead and hold onto those MagicBands that Disney shipped to your home. There’s nothing better (or magical) than planning a vacation to Walt Disney World for your family, so now as you plan your next vacation, you can do so with these MagicBands already in hand and linked to your account. In fact, Magicbands will no longer be provided on a complimentary basis for new reservations for arrivals at Disney Resort hotels January 1, 2021 and beyond, so definitely hold on to these as you will be able to use them during an upcoming vacation.

    As you look to plan your next vacation, be sure to check out the Special Offers, Deals & Discounts page. This is the first place that our family visits before booking vacations to Walt Disney World.

    If you have any other questions please let us know. Otherwise, be sure to tell Mickey I said hello on your next trip!
