    We will be staying "off-site" for the first time this May ( Dolphin resort) Can we use magic bands the same as we do at a Disney resort? Can we reuse the bands from a trip we made earlier this year, or do we need to buy new ones?

    Hi Tricia,

    How fun that you'll be returning to "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the second time this year! You'll love experiencing some of your favorites again, and of course there's always something new to discover! Lightning McQueen's Racing Academy just opened at Disney's Hollywood Studios last week (Ka-Chow!), and the 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival will still be going on during your visit, too. With gorgeous topiaries, delicious food, and the super fun Garden Rocks Concert Series, you'll LOVE soaking up the beauty and magic!

    I'm happy to let you know that MagicBands are reusable, and you'll still be able to use the same MagicBands from your earlier trip for as long as the batteries last, which is usually for several years. While you'll be able to use them to enter the theme parks, hop in the FastPass+ queue, and link your Disney PhotoPass photos, they won't work to unlock your room door at the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel or charge purchases back to your room. You should still see them linked to your My Disney Experience account, as as long as they're marked "Active," you're good to go!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Tricia, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're preparing for your next visit. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
