    Hello, my question is regarding magic bands. Our magic bands arrived last night I never changed the silly names I put on them for myself and my husband. Will there be a problem using them? Never had a problem before but I used our initials previously.

    Hi Concetta,

    No worries! And how fun that you customized your MagicBands with creative names for your family. The name inside your MagicBand is totally up to you and won't affect their use at all. It's the serial number inside the MagicBand that ties it to your My Disney Experience account and to your tickets, FastPass+ reservations and more, not the name.

    I've seen friends give each member of their families the name of a different character. Or guests have arranged the names so that they spell out a phrase such as "We're Going to Disney World" when they are in the shipping box. You're free to use your imagination.

    As long as you remember which name belongs to each family member, you're good. Which gets me thinking, what character name do I want for my next Walt Disney World vacation?

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Concetta. Please let us know if you have any other questions as you make your last-minute plans. Your vacation is just around the corner now. Enjoy!
