    I booked a WDW vacation through Costco travel. We are staying at Disney’s All Star Sports resort. Are our magic bands shipped to us before our vacation or do we get them once we arrive? Not sure since we didn’t book directly with Disney.

    Hi Jessica!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I have booked vacations with Costco in the past too and I'm glad to let you know you are still eligible to receive MagicBands, as well as all the other wondEARful benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel!

    When you booked with Costco there should be two confirmation numbers in your email from them, one would be the Costco confirmation number and the other would be your Disney confirmation number. If you don't see it, give Costco Travel a quick ring and ask them to provide it for you. Once you have the Disney confirmation you'll want to set up a My Disney Experience account. This is going to be the best way to access all the planning tools you'll need prior to arrival. Once you are all logged in you'll want to click the My Disney Experience logo in the top right hand corner and click Plan. You'll enter your Disney confirmation number and you'll be ready to go! Here you'll be able to edit your account for your shipping address as well as customize your families MagicBands. Not to mention reserve dining for your stay and book FastPass+.

    If for some reason you are unable to do this prior, you'll receive standard grey MagicBands for your party upon arrival at check in, but personalizing them is so fun so I'd really recommend it! Happy planning and please come back if you have any other questions before your trip!
