    Can wristbands from previous visits be activated for new reservations?

    Hi Donna!

    Thanks for visiting planDisney with your question about MagicBands!

    I'm happy to hEAR you have an upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and that you're planning to reuse some MagicBands from a previous visit. If your MagicBands are still in working condition (I recommend they not be more than two years old), you can continue to use them when you return for your February vacation. You should be able to manage whether or not they're "active" in the MagicBand section of "My Profile" on My Disney Experience

    If your MagicBands need replacing, Guests of Disney Resorts Collection hotels have the option to purchase them up to 10 days prior to arrival at special discounted prices. You can also purchase new MagicBands online or at select merchandise locations throughout Walt Disney World. 

    MagicBands can be used to:
    - Unlock the door of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room
    - Enter theme parks and water parks (with valid admission and a Disney Park Pass reservation)
    - Connect Disney PhotoPass photos to your My Disney Experience account
    - Charge purchases to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room
    - Automatically upload on-ride attraction photos to your Photo Gallery from 13 Walt Disney World attractions

    MagicBands truly help you unlock extra magic on your Walt Disney World Resort visit and add an extra level of convenience and ease to your vacation days. 

    I hope this helps with your plans and preparations for your upcoming trip.
    Have a magical day! - Diane W.
