    Staying at Art of animation for part of our next trip, so we're getting new magic bands. We're having them delivered to a hotel off property before we make it to Disney. Will they already be linked to our account? What about the old ones?

    Hello Barbara, and welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so excited to hear that you will be starting off the new year with a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. I am pleased to tell you that your new MagicBands will arrive approximately one month prior to your check-in date at the mailing address you specify here in the United States. When you receive your new MagicBands, they will already be connected to the My Disney Experience accounts of each member of your travel party.

    I love to collect MagicBands and I can say that any previously issued MagicBands will also work during your upcoming trip as long as they are still listed as active on your My Disney Experience account under the MagicBands and Cards tab. Please note, the single-use battery in a MagicBand is only good for approximately 2 years. If you have MagicBands that are more than 2 years old, the batteries may not be strong enough to allow you to open your door, capture onboard ride photos and videos, or redeem your FastPass+ selections. I have a number of special and limited edition MagicBands in my collection. They make excellent souvenirs and great decorations around my home as a part of my displays.

    See ya real soon,
