    I will be attending to Disney in June with 22 family members in total. We are staying in the Art of Animation. We will use the Magic Bands. When is the best time to order them? Is it better to pick it up at the check in? Or before? Thanks for you answer.

    Hi Humberto,

    Congratulations on your family's upcoming grand gathering!  You have chosen an excellent Disney Resort hotel for your accommodations.  My own family vacationed at Disney's Art of Animation Resort hotel last year and fell in love with its larger than life themes and whimsical details.

    Follow this link to learn more about MagicBand customization and the timeframes involved.  It is important to note that in order to customize MagicBands you will need first to create a My Disney Experience account.  Through your My Disney Experience account you will be able to order and customize your MagicBands as well as manage many other vacation planning items such as making your FastPass+ selections up to 60 days in advance of your Resort stay.

    Personally my family LOVES receiving customized MagicBands in the mail prior to our vacation. So my vote is always to customize and receive MagicBands prior to your vacation if you have enough time. Picking our individual colors and the names to be displayed inside each of our MagicBands has become a fun pastime for my family.  Last year my family went with a Star Wars theme and we had Jedi, padawans, and even a Darth in our group.

    Thank you for your question Humberto!  Please let us know if you have any further vacation planning questions.  We are always happy to help others plan their dream Disney vacations!

I fell in love with Walt Disney World on my very first visit, which took place during my honeymoon. Since then we have added 4 "mouseketeers" to our family and have come to appreciate what a great value a Walt Disney World vacation can be on a budget. As a Physical Therapist and a mom of a large family, I would love to help you plan your next magical trip! Learn More About Brenda
