    Are new magic cards issued if you have an active card from a previous year? I have been able to find 4 out of 5 of my families cards but 1 is missing. What should I do? deactivate all cards and just get new or will they issue us 1 new card upon arrival?

    Heigh-Ho Anna,

    Let me give you some magical news that will help with your question. Guests are able to access their Walt Disney World tickets in the following three ways: MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile Service and Key to World card. 
    Disney MagicBands are purchased through shopDisney or at stores all around the Walt Disney World Resort. Once purchased, Guests will activate the wristband by linking them through their My Disney Experience. Another option is through the My Disney Experience mobile app. Here Guests can learn about the Disney MagicMobile service and, if you have an Apple or Google pay Andriod phone, create a digital pass to be stored in your device’s wallet. 
    And then there is the Key to the World Card. This is a complimentary hard copy card adorned with one of the Disney Fab Five characters. Guests can visit the Front Desk of their Disney Resorts Collection Hotel or one of the Guest Relations/Ticket Counters located outside of all four Walt Disney World Theme Parks to have the cards assigned to all ticketed Guests. I recommend having new ones assigned to your entire party. Through your My Disney Experience, you can Deactivate your old cards if you like. Simply sign in to your My Disney Experience and select MY MAGICBANDS AND CARDS. A list of all MagicBands and Cards will appear and you can choose to keep them activated or deactivate them. 

    I hope this helps and am excited you will be returning, in about a month, to The Most Magical Place On Earth. The nighttime skies are now lighting up at Magic Kingdom with Happily Ever After and at Epcot with Epcot Forever. Check for showtimes on your My Disney Experience mobile app and may your stay be filled with many magical and memorable moments. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,
    Amy M.
