This will be our 3rd trip (but 1st time not on at WDW property–so no magic bands).
We have our older sets (Oct '17, Dec '18), (still listed as active), and from what I’ve read, we don’t need to do anything to activate BUT they might not work b/c of the battery.
We plan to hit HS on arrival day (with FP+ scheduled); would we not be able to board?
Also, I’ve seen some references to in-ride video, and not being able to access it. If our magic band batteries are low, would these be “lost” forever (we have memory maker)? I guess, I’m kind of asking if there are certain features that we may not realize aren’t “working” b/c of the older bands.
