    My husband and I are surprising our kids with 1 day in MK after a cruise. We bought tickets online and have Magic Bands from a previous trip. I see on my experience our magic bands listed with our names. Do we bring the old ones or get new mailed to us

    Hi Stacy and welcome to the Disney Parks Mom's Panel. I wish I could see the look on your kids' faces when you surprise them with a day in the Magic Kingdom! So exciting!

    One of the many wonderful things about MagicBands is that you can reuse the ones you already have or purchase new ones. It's completely up to you. Just be sure every magic band is added to My Disney Experience, where you can go to activate the ones you will be using for your visit. Some people even like to collect all their favorites and switch back and forth between them. Just hop on over to the MagicBand section of My Profile in My Disney Experience, either the website or the app, to manage them.

    Please come back to visit us for any other travel tips or ideas. What a perfect vacation you have ahead--a cruise and the Magic Kingdom! Have a wonderful time!
