    We used the Magic Bands last year & are wondering if they are reusable or will new ones be issued? Also if they are still being mailed, can you tell me how far in advance they may be ordered? Thank you, your site is very informative!

    Hi Patricia,

    If you're staying at a Disney resort hotel, you will automatically be given new MagicBands for each visit. Your old Bands may also be used, either instead of or in addition to your old bands. I've now collected a set of all the available colors for myself and they're all currently active, meaning that I can use any of them as my park ticket, room key, or charge card. I can even use a different one each day, coordinating with my outfit.

    If you prefer to have just one MagicBand active at a time, you may arrange that as well. To control your MagicBands, logon to your account at Go to the My Disney Experience tab on the top right of the page and scroll down to the MagicBands & Cards. You'll be able to specify which bands you want to be activated.

    Once you have a room reservation, you can customize your MagicBands at any time. All bands will be shipped approximately one month prior to your arrival date.

    Good luck with your planning. Please let us know what else we can do to help.
