    I booked the Disney All Star Movie Resort through Expedia, will I still get the Magic Bands? Will they be mailed prior to leaving or pick up at resort? Also is it best to buy park tickets at resort or online?

    Welcome Home, Lenora!

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel and sending us your question about MagicBands and Walt Disney World Resort theme park tickets. Congratulations on your upcoming stay at Disney’s All-Star Movies Resort!

    As long as you add your Disney Resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience Account in advance of your vacation, you will be able to customize your MagicBand. With My Disney Experience you will also be able to complete online check-in, reserve dining, and so much more!

    MagicBand fulfillment takes a total of about 11 days. Please keep in mind that factors such as holidays, weekends and inclement weather can affect this estimated time. As long as you customize and finalize your personalized MagicBands within this time-frame, you will receive them at the address associated to your My Disney Experience account. If you customize them too close to the date of your Disney Resort hotel arrival, you will receive them at check-in. If you decide to not customize them at all, you will receive standard gray MagicBands at check-in.

    Mom’s Tip: I prefer to purchase my tickets before my vacation as doing so allows me to link them to my My Disney Experience Account in order to make my FastPass+ selections in advance. I encourage you to visit the FastPass+ Help Center page in order to learn more.

    Lenora, I hope I have helped answer your questions. If you need any more help, please visit us again.

    Wishing you a Pixie-Dusted Vacation,
