    Hi, we are two seniors making our final WDW visit Late August and have four year old magic bands that worked lat year. If by chance they don’t function this visit are we able to get cards in lieu of purchasing new bands?


    Thanks for asking your question to planDisney!

    Late August is such a great time to visit Walt Disney World! Crowds seem to start to dwindle down a bit from the rush of summer, but there is still that summertime buzz in the parks.

    If your MagicBands have finally run out of battery power, you absolutely can ask for a card to use as your theme park tickets instead of having to purchase new MagicBands. If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel you can request them at your hotel front desk. Otherwise, you can simply visit the Guest Relations/Ticket Counter windows at any of the four theme parks.

    It sounds like you are heading to an important visit to Walt Disney World. While you will surely visit many of your longtime favorites, don't overlook adding a few new experiences as well. A lot of Disney veterans have yet to try out dining at the Jungle Navigation Co. LTD Skipper Canteen. It combines a new culinary adventure with the legendary Magic Kingdom story line from the Jungle Cruise attraction for a nostalgic and new memory, all in one.

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

    Have a Magical Vacation!
