    How do I test if a previous magic band is still working (battery) before I leave home to see if I would still be able to use it in the parks?

    Hello Deborah and thanks for returning to planDisney with another supercalifragilisticexpialidocious question for us to help you with!

    I really do enjoy all of the MagicBands in my ever-expanding collection!  So, of course, I can totally relate to your wishes to reuse some of your still functioning MagicBands from previous visits to Walt Disney World Resort.

    Deborah, to the very best of my current knowledge, the best way Guests can test the functionality of their MagicBands is by stopping by in person at any Guest Relations location, or Disney Resorts Collection hotel Lobby Concierge desk where helpful Cast Members will be only too happy to assist and advise as necessary.

    It might be helpful for you to know that Guests can also utilise their smart devices with the Disney MagicMobile Service.  Disney MagicMobile Service works similarly to that of wearing a MagicBand!  Guests are able to create a digital pass that cleverly links all their vacation and My Disney Experience entitlements all in one enchanted spot, plus if you pop your Apple device in express mode, you won't even need to unlock it when you reach a touch access point!

    I hope that I've been able to provide a little pixie-dusted insight for you today Deborah.  If you should have any further questions about your upcoming December vacation to Walt Disney World Resort, then please do pop back to planDisney anytime!  We're always happy to help wherever we are able.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
