    Just booked on the 4th put deposit down how long b4 I get my magic bands so I can link to disney experience?

    Hi, Andy! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    Congratulations on booking your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation, where Magic is Endless! Your MagicBands should be shipped to you approximately 2 weeks before arrival. Remember to use your My Disney Experience account to customize your MagicBands, which can be done as soon as you’ve made your Disney Resort hotel reservation! If you wait and only customize your MagicBand between 10 days and 6 days before arrival, you will receive it at check-in. Customization includes selecting your color as well as adding your name, which will be printed on the inside of your MagicBand. 

    When you log-in to your My Disney Experience account, your MagicBand should already be there, waiting to be customized. There shouldn’t be a need to link it, as it is part of your Magic Your Way Vacation Package! If you have any difficulty with customizing online, I suggest contacting Website Support. 

    I hope my answer helps you with your planning and that you come see us again soon!
