    We are visiting in February but staying offsite. We still have our magic bands from when we visited in 2016. Can I reuse our magic banks from that trip and if so, do I have to re-link the magic band to the new park tickets once I purchase the tickets?

    Dear Jennifer, 
    Thank you for bringing us your question about your upcoming vacation at Walt Disney World!
    You can absolutely bring a MagicBand from a previous stay (you can check which ones are active on your My Disney Experience account) and ask for your February tickets to be linked to that MagicBand. I did that last November when I stayed at a resort on property but that didn't include a MagicBand so I brought one I had used in July and had my tickets linked to it without a problem. You would have to stop by Guest Relations at the first Park you visit and have those tickets linked up to your existing MagicBand.  
    However, I do believe you need to verify that the batteries on the MagicBand are still good because I did experience a situation in which an attraction photo did not transfer over to my MagicBand and the person who helped me at the Disney PhotoPass Service location said that it might have been because of the low battery on the MagicBand. They are normally good for a couple of years, I was told, but it is better to have it checked prior to your trip.
    If you have any further questions about this, please feel free to reach out to the MagicBands team by calling (407) 939-4357. 
    Jennifer, I wish you a fabulous trip filled with tons of pixie-dust! Please, come back with more questions whenever you need to! 

    See ya real soon,

Hi! I'm Desiree from Lima, Peru. My family will never ever tire of visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth, even if means traveling almost 3,000 miles to do so! My husband and I love to watch the fireworks with our kids, but the best magic happens when the grandparents come along and we all feel the same age in front of Cinderella Castle! I love giving tips about different types of resorts and traveling with multigenerational groups.
