Can I reuse my MagicBand or card the next time I visit Walt Disney World Resort?
MagicBands & Cards – Frequently Asked Questions
Yes. If you have a MagicBand or card that you like, and it is in working condition, you can continue to use it when you return to Walt Disney World Resort.
If you have multiple MagicBands or cards, you can manage which ones are active in the MagicBand section of My Profile. To ensure access to all MagicBand benefits—including certain Disney PhotoPass Service benefits—you may want to purchase a new MagicBand.
MagicBand Update for Guests Staying at Disney Resort Hotels
As a reminder, Disney Resort hotel Guests with an arrival date through December 31, 2020 will receive complimentary MagicBands. MagicBands will no longer be provided on a complimentary basis for new reservations with arrivals at Disney Resort hotels January 1, 2021 and beyond.
Here are some helpful tips to consider before your next stay:
- Want to use a MagicBand? You can purchase a MagicBand online and at select merchandise locations at Walt Disney World Resort. Discounts may be available.
- Already have a MagicBand from a previous visit? You can reuse your current MagicBand. Depending on how much time has passed since you initially used your MagicBand, your ability to receive Disney PhotoPass attraction videos and select attraction photos may be limited.
- Prefer not to use a MagicBand? At your convenience, swing by the Front Desk of your Disney Resort hotel to pick up a Key to the World card, which can be used in lieu of a MagicBand.
- Want to skip check-in and go straight to your room? Use convenient Online Check-In service and Direct-to-Room service, which allows you to get to the fun faster with real-time, room-ready updates—and even lets you use the My Disney Experience app as a digital room key at your Disney Resort hotel.
