    Went Jan 12-19/22018 going again as DVC Jan4-11/2019. Can we use our Magic bands from our first trip? How do I set it up? we are Canadian so we don't get them mailed to us but have this years to use next year if we can.

    Hi, Melanie! Thank you so much for your questions. We are so happy to have the chance to help you plan a wonderful vacation.

    The good thing about Disney MagicBands is they have a pretty good battery life. I have one that is four years old and still going strong. You can absolutely use the MagicBands that you used on this past trip. The bands are already associated with your My Disney Experience account, and they will automatically sync up with any reservations that appear in the system. When it comes time to customize your MagicBands, you can just select the option that allows you to decline the new bands.

    Do make sure that your Disney Vacation Club reservation is added to your My Disney Experience account. I always find that I have to add the reservation number in myself in order to see it in my plans.

    I hope this is shaping up to be a great vacation!
