Mobile Old ticket cards work with new bookings?

Any one know if old ticket cards work with new bookings the same way magic bands do?

I have booked MNSSHP and it shows on MDE app. We all should have magic bands from a trip last year and I know we can just tap in with those.

Trouble is one magic band is missing. We do have cards that were sent when we had our 14 day tickets last year. On MDE each person seems to have a card and a magic band allocated to them, so if we cant find the magic band I wondered if the same persons card would work to tap in?

Yes they do. They will show on the app and will work unless you have deactivated them.

Have you bought passes for this year? As I understand it the "card" shouldn't work because it's an expired pass, if you have bought new passes then you would need a new "hard" ticket to scan. I'm actually surprised that your old pass is still showing because none of mine are, I have never deactivated any of them, they have just gone as the pass has expired.

This is correct. The card itself is no longer valid, if it is for an expired ticket. You can definitely still use the old bands, but if you have lost one then you will need to go to Guest Services and get a new 'card' for that person, or buy and link a new Magic Band.

The cards do still work. The tickets that were originally on it would have expired but it is still on your account as active and will work unless you expressly turn it off in your account.

A card is exactly the same as a magic band. It is just another identifier to your account. The tickets are not on the card they are in your MDE account. Anything that can identify that MDE account will work. If it is active on MDE it will work.

As Simon says above, the plastic card acts just like a MagicBand. In the same way that there's nothing stored on the MagicBand, there's nothing stored on the plastic card. It just links to your MDE account which lists whether or not you have a valid ticket linked to your account. And, just like a MagicBand, you can use the plastic card again and again.

See the following FAQ on Disney's website:

disneyworld.disney.go/en...ure-visit-use/

"Can I reuse my MagicBand or card the next time I visit Walt Disney World Resort?

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.
