    Hello:) I was wondering how many active magic bands a person can have at one time? Also, how long do magic bands typically stay active for? Thank you!!

    Hi Ashley,

    It sounds like you enjoying using MagicBands during your trips to Walt Disney World Resort as much as I do. It seems like every time we travel to Walt Disney World, the remarkable technology inside our MagicBands keeps getting better and better. I love being able to use my MagicBand as my room key to unlock my Resort hotel room, store and access my Theme Parks tickets and Fastpasses, charge purchases to my room, link Disney PhotoPass photos, and so much more!

    Ashley, I am happy to confirm that provided your MagicBands are less than two years old, you should be able to use them on subsequent visits. Once a MagicBand is linked to your My Disney Experience account, it will continue to act interchangeably with all other MagicBands associated with your account. The RFID technology in each MagicBand will generally continue to function for approximately two years before having to be retired from your My Disney Experience account. In the event you have lost or recycled a past MagicBand, or if it is more than two years old, it is always a good idea to remove it from your My Disney Experience account to make things more manageable.

    My daughter and I already have quite a rainbow collection of MagicBands from past trips in our personal inventory, which we bring along with us each time we travel to Walt Disney World, as we like to color coordinate them with our outfit of the day.  

    Wishing you a MAGICAL day, and please be sure to stop back should you have any other questions. We are here to help.
