    We are coming from Canada but will be using old magic bands instead of getting new ones. will they work for magical express or does the raid get affected through the airport on the way there? not sure since they aren't usually shipped to canada

    Hi Nicole, 

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question.  I am so excited that you have chosen to head back to Walt Disney World Resort for another magical vacation!  Every time we return, I ask my daughter if she wants to re-use her old MagicBand, but she insists on choosing a new one.  

    I have used my old MagicBand several times when returning to Walt Disney World Resort.  Even when I have chosen to select a new MagicBand, I bring several of my older MagicBands (to colour co-ordinate with my outfits, of course) and for Disney's Magical Express.  As long as you have requested Disney's Magical Express and provided your flight times, your old MagicBands will work at Orlando International Airport.  I have never had an issue using an older MagicBand at Orlando International Airport.  Be sure to add your Disney's Magical Express by calling  (407) 939-1936 where a Cast Member will be happy to help.  

    If you have your MagicBand from an old visit, they will also link your tickets, Disney Dining Plan, FastPass+ Selections, Memory Maker and resort room key automatically. Everything will be ready to go once you and your party checks in. Don't forget to make your Advanced Dining Reservations 180 days prior to arrival and your FastPass+ Selections 60 days in advance if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel or 30 days in advance if staying off site.  

    I hope you have another wonderful visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Nicole.  Please let us know if you have any other questions.
