    I have a trip planned for Nov. 6-10 2023. I need two magic bands. My husband has one from a 2022 trip, but I need one.


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    I have enjoyed my new MagicBand+ band on my trips to Walt Disney World. From simple experiences like it lighting up as I exit a ride, to helping me earn some credits as I chase down bad guys in the Batuu Bounty Hunters quest, it perks up my day. More importantly, I love having a single band that is my room key, my park ticket, and how I pay for my souvenirs and meals, all on one wrist. 

    There are two ways for you to approach getting a band. If you are coming to Walt Disney World with a package that includes staying at a Disney Resort Collections hotel, you may be eligible to purchase a MagicBand at a discount. If you go to your My Disney Experience Account, go to the "My Magic Band and Cards" section. If eligible, you will see a fairly extensive list of options, and any relevant discount should be reflected there. 

    Even if you are not eligible for a discount, you can still get a band. They will send it to your home address before arrival, and you can assign it to your account. Alternatively, you can also review band options at, in case there is a particular design you are hunting for. You could also wait until you arrive to buy one at a park or resort store, but I think planning ahead will mean one less thing for you to do. 

    A final note. your husband's band from 2022 would likely still be active and might not need to be replaced. Even if it is a previous version of MagicBand from that year, the internal batteries (which cannot be replaced) typically have a 2-year lifespan, so he should be good to go. 

    Please feel free to write me back directly if you have any follow-up questions.

    Have a Magical Vacation!
