    When you book a Disney vacation package do the Magic Bands get mailed to you at some point? Do you have to do something in order for them to ship?

    Hi Christy!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We're excited to help spread a little magic on your Walt Disney World vacation planning!

    Personally, I think MagicBands may be the best invention ever! I love having the ability to unlock my resort room, pay for park purchases, enter theme parks and access my FastPass+ right on my wrist. Gone are the days of juggling park tickets, paper FastPass tickets and resort room keys. Whew! I wish these existed when my kids were little!

    MagicBands are complimentary to Walt Disney World Resort guests and Annual Passholders. Once you book your vacation, you'll log into My Disney Experience (either online or via the mobile app) to select from a range of colors and personalize names. You'll even have an option to upgrade, at a discount, to special MagicBands which may unlock special lights or effects at select locations.

    Once you personalize your bands, your bands will ship automatically to the address you've selected, as long as you do so at least 11 days before arrival and shipping within the U.S. Don't worry if you miss the deadline, or are outside of the U.S., your MagicBands will be available at your Walt Disney World Resort upon check-in.

    All of us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel love to plan Walt Disney World vacations, so reach out if we can help with more ideas and tips!
