    Hi, how and when should I avail of the magic pass bands for me and my family? Should i just get them at the hotel upon check-in?

    Howdy Bernice!  Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  We really appreciate your question.

    Staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel is the best way to immerse yourself in your Walt Disney World vacation.  There are so many perks!  I love to customize my MagicBand and when they arrive at my home it feels as if my vacation has started.  I see you are arriving in May.  This gives you plenty of time to customize your MagicBand.  To start you will want to make sure you have the My Disney Experience app downloaded to your smart phone or on your computer via the Walt Disney World website.  Go to my profile and choose the option “MagicBands and Cards” then continue to follow the directions to create the perfect MagicBand for you.  Make sure your order is placed 11 days prior to your arrival if you want to receive them at your home or 6 days before your arrival if you would rather receive them at your Resort hotel. 
    May is an awesome time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort.  There are so many new attractions open and coming.  The Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival is a definite “Must-Do” for our family.  There are beautiful topiaries, fun exhibits, food options to experience, and performances at the America Gardens Theatre in the American Adventure Pavilion!

    Your vacation will be here before you know it!  Bernice, if you have any more question, please come back and share them with me.  I would love to help you!

    See Ya Real Soon,
