    Is there a way to test a manic band prior to arrival to determine if the band still works or if the battery is dead?

    Hi Keith! Welcome to planDisney!

    Can you believe it! Only a couple more days until you arrive for your Walt Disney World vacation! There is nothing better than the anticipation leading up to your stay! Let's jump right into your question and get you ready for your visit.

    MagicBands are the perfect companion to have during your Walt Disney World trip! They come with plenty of features to use at both the parks and resorts. Unfortunately, there is no way to check if your MagicBand is still working before arriving onsite. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Hotel, you can stop by the front desk upon arrival and have a Cast Member check each one before heading out to the parks. If not, you can stop by Guest Relations just outside of any of the four theme parks and they will be able to test your MagicBands there. If one is not working, they can provide an admission card for you to gain entry into the park. You'll then be able to purchase a new one at many merchandise locations all around the park.

    Just last year, Walt Disney World introduced MagicBand+ as a new alternative for Guests. These bands come with similar features as a MagicBand, but now can do so much more. They can light up, vibrate, and interact in many areas around the parks. They come equipped with a charger, so you'll always know if they are working. You'll find a variety of these new bands at all merchandise locations around the parks. I've seen some fun designs to date, and I'm sure more are being created as we speak!

    Keith, have a magical time during your visit! 

    See ya real soon!
