    We have been many times but purchased the magic bands the last time we came in 2019. We are coming this summer and wanted to make sure these will work this time. Also do I need to remind them to our account?

    Hiya there, Jason! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is coming up in just a few short months! I'm sure you're counting down the days until you can hug Mickey Mouse and his friends and enjoy a pixie-dusted visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. And yes, you read that right! I did say hug Mickey Mouse! By the time you arrive for your stay, many character meet and greets will be back in the way we all know and love- with hugs and autographs!

    Jason, I have more great news. Your MagicBands from your last trip will still work for your upcoming stay. And better yet, there is nothing you need to do to wake them up or remind them that you're coming. As part of the magic of the MagicBand, they'll just know! You will just want to make sure that your new tickets are linked to your My Disney Experience Account before you arrive. As long as your tickets are linked, your MagicBand will know what to do!

    MagicBands are a multi-functional tool that makes vacationing at the Walt Disney World Resort fun and easy! You can use your MagicBand to scan into the park, as your tickets will be housed within this little Mousketool. You can use it to unlock the door of your Disney Resort Hotel, make payments at participating locations, and most recently, scan into your Disney Genie+ attraction reservations during your allotted time window. If you can dream it, your MagicBand can do it (or pretty close, at least).

    Have a magical day,
