    We booked a vacation for the first time since Magic Bands have been implemented. Do the magic bands ship to your house prior to your vacation?

    Hi Anthony,

    How exciting that you'll be returning to the most magical place on earth this fall! If it's been awhile since your last visit, you'll be happy to experience the same kind of magic and fun that you enjoyed last time, plus many wonderful new things to discover.

    Yes, if you're staying at a Disney Resort hotel, one of the many perks you'll enjoy is complimentary MagicBands. I'd encourage you to log in to your My Disney Experience account and customize your MagicBands at least 11 days in advance. When you do, your personalized MagicBands will be shipped to your home before your trip begins. If you customize them between 6 - 10 days before you check in, your personalized ones will be waiting for at the front desk of your Disney Resort hotel, and if you forget to customize them, Hakuna worries! You'll still receive MagicBands when you check-in; they just won't be customized. If you can, though, take the time to customize them. I don't want to ruin any surprises for you, but you just might find a bit of personalized magic for you around the Walt Disney World Resort if you do!

    You'll love how convenient your MagicBands make everything on your visit. From entering a theme park to capturing a Disney PhotoPass photo to hopping in a FastPass+ queue to charging purchases back to your Disney Resort hotel room, it all happens with just a flip of your wrist!

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Anthony, and if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip, please let us know. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
