    We will be at the Swan and the parks next month. Can our MagicBands from 2018 still work? If so, what to do? And one of my daughters can't find hers, will we need to purchase a new one for her? If so, how much for a basic?

    Welcome back to planDisney, Frank! Thanks so much for sending us another question. How exciting that you are vacationing at The Most Magical Place on Earth next month!

    If you haven't ever stayed at the Walt Disney World Swan Hotel before, you're in for a treat! This is such a beautiful resort and one of my family's favorites! MagicBands can be used for some conveniences during your vacation, however, they will not work for unlocking your resort room door or for charging privileges. When our family stays there, we like to use our MagicBands for scanning entry into the theme parks and when we want to capture special memories using Disney PhotoPass Service. You can even use your MagicBands from previous Disney vacations! I would recommend checking your My Disney Experience account before you arrive to make sure they are still showing as linked to each person in your travel party. If you would like to purchase a new one for your daughter, there are many solid colors and fun designs to choose from! You can find these at many locations at the theme parks and resort hotel gift shops throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. At this time, the starting price point is $29.99 for a MagicBand, however, prices are subject to change. In December, I stayed at the neighboring resort, the Walt Disney World Dolphin Hotel, and the hotel gift shop had MagicBands for purchase. It is likely the gift shop at the Swan also has MagicBands.

    The Swan Hotel has so many magical amenities and benefits that I want to make sure you are aware of! As a Disney Hotel guest, you can enjoy Early Theme Park Entry at all of the theme parks every day. Because you are staying at a Deluxe Resort Hotel, you can also take advantage of Extended Evening Theme Park Hours on select nights at select theme parks. You can also enjoy complimentary resort transportation to the theme parks and Disney Springs. When you need to relax and unwind, I highly recommend enjoying some pool time at the Grotto Pool at the resort.

    If you have any additional questions as you are planning, please visit us again at planDisney. We're always happy to help!

    Happy Planning!
