Can non Disney resort guests use MagicBands?
Even if you are not staying at a Disney resort, you can – and should – purchase a MagicBand. MagicBands can be linked to your park tickets (purchased separately) through the My Disney Experience app.
Can you interchange MagicBands?
No. Your MagicBand or card is unique to you and only you are authorized to access the benefits associated with it —including linked tickets, touch-to-pay purchases and other entitlements. Once a MagicBand or card is linked to your Disney account, it cannot be transferred to another person.
Are MagicBands free if you stay at a Disney resort?
While Magic Bands are still available at Disney World, they are no longer included for free with the cost of a resort stay. Increasingly, they aren’t even needed as your phone or Apple Watch can now do many of those same functions — and more — without having to wear a just-for-Disney wrist accessory.
Can you use multiple MagicBands on one trip?
Can I have multiple active MagicBands or cards? A. Yes. If you have multiple MagicBands or cards linked to your Disney account, you can continue to use as many as your wrists and pockets can carry.
Are MagicBands being discontinued?

Is Disney getting rid of MagicBands?
Disney World has decided to begin moving away from MagicBands, introducing a new app on smartphones that allow visitors to tap in and out of attractions and interact with the park in the same way.
When you check in to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, the front desk will confirm that you have indeed linked your MagicBand with a credit card as well as confirming a 4-digit pin number that you will enter anytime you’d like to use your MagicBand for payment.
Any tickets you link to your account will automatically be linked to your existing MagicBands for future use. To link new tickets, log-in to your My Disney Experience account. MagicBands do have a battery life of up to two years, according to Disney, so keep that in mind if you are planning on using them in the future.
