    Our trip is a surprise for our boys! What kind of box do our Magic Bands arrive in? I would love to keep this a secret until we leave but don't want a box with all things magically disney showing up in the mailbox if my boys get the mail. Thanks, Kara

    Hi Kara,

    Ohmygoodness, how FUN that you're surprising your Mouseketeers with a magical Disney adventure! Your boys are going to be ECSTATIC when they find out that they're going to get to experience "The Most Magical Place on Earth" this summer!

    I'm happy to let you know that your MagicBands will arrive in a generic-looking box. The return address will be from Florida, but won't say Disney anywhere on it, so your secret will be safe as long as you open the box away from little eyes. I would encourage you to keep an eye on your mail, though, as you may receive other information, like Disney's Magical Express luggage tags, for example.

    I'm sending some pixie dust that you'll be able to keep everything top secret about your trip so that nothing spoils your surprise. When my husband and I surprised our kids a couple of years ago, we packed the suitcases late at night a couple of days before we left. Thankfully we locked them because the kids found them hidden away, and commented after we were on our way that they thought it was strange that we had locked suitcases in the closet! Evidently the Disney magic began before we ever left home because they didn't even ask us about them when they found them or give it a second thought! Shew...that was close!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kara, and please let us know if there's anything else we can help with as you're planning your trip. I hope that you and Mouseketeers have a truly magical vacation!
