    We visited WDW in May 2014. Returning in November 2014. We still have our magic bands and I am wondering if I have to do anything to use them on the November trip. MDE says they are still active but I wonder if room, dining, fast passes are linked.

    Hi Kim,

    Congratulations on your second trip to Walt Disney World in 2014!  It sounds like you have booked another vacation package and therefore will have a second set of MagicBands to use on vacation.  As long as My Disney Experience shows your previous set of MagicBands still active, you should be able to use either set of MagicBands interchangeably.  You should bring both sets and can check them with the Disney Resort Hotel concierge when you check in.

    I have several MagicBands myself and have found that since all of them have been activated and are in good working order, I am able to use them interchangeably.  I have several colors and sometimes I like to coordinate my outfit with my MagicBand.  This is a big step for my fashion sense!  When I am on vacation, I usually only worry about sunscreen and comfy shoes.  But MagicBands have brought some much needed fashion to me, and in the most magical style possible. 

    Thank you for submitting your question Kim!  I hope you enjoy your MagicBands as much as I do.  My fellow Disney Parks Moms Panelist, Lauren H., has made it a hobby to dress up her MagicBands to show her Disney Side.  She uses Disney stickers and glitter polish to create individualized MagicBands for her family.  Another idea is to purchase MagicBandIts and accessories from the Disney Store online before your trip.  I love how MagicBands have added even more magic to planning our Walt Disney World vacations.
