    We've visited WDW before & the family all have Magic Bands. I have bought park tickets for when we visit again this month, and have loaded them onto our profiles so we can book fastpass. Will our magic bands automatically work when we arrive?

    Hi Lisa,

    I'm so excited that you and your family will be returning to the most magical place on earth! And with your visit just a couple of weeks away, I hope you're enjoying counting down the days until you arrive! Your trip will be here so soon!

    With a battery life that lasts for around two years, I love that MagicBands can be reused. Plus, I'm happy to let you know that as long as your MagicBands are still marked as active in your My Disney Experience account, they should work just fine when you arrive. I'd encourage you to log in to My Disney Experience, and click on "MagicBands and Cards" where you'll be able to see any tickets and MagicBands linked to your account. It will say next to each one whether it is active or not, and if it's not, you may click on it and change it to active. If for any reason you experience trouble, feel free to call a friendly Cast Member at (407) 939-4357 (US) or 0800 16 90 749 (UK) who will be able to help you.

    You're visiting at a great time of year! With lots of amazing concerts, delicious food, and gorgeous displays at the 2018 Epcot International Flower and Garden Festival, you and your family are sure to have a blast! 

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Lisa, and have a truly magical vacation!
