- The Guest already has a MagicBand assigned to them;
- One of the assigned bands is less than a year old;
- The MagicBand order is for a resort reservation (Passholder orders cannot be declined);
"Unfortunately, Guests that visited on a regular basis (and therefore had many old MagicBands) could not reuse them."
Guests could always reuse old bands; I've reused past resort bands numerous times, both at the parks and at different resorts on different stays. You just couldn't opt out from getting new ones anyway. But, this is an overdue change.
Correct 10:47 Anon. The old Magic bands have always worked with the new stays (Exception to the few folk who have created all new accounts for each stay.) Think of MDE application as being the vault that hold all your info. All the Magic band is, is a key to open the door into that vault. Like with a door, many keys can be cut to open that door. They may have different IDs, but they are all coded to open that same door.
