    I have booked a weekend getaway for my daughter and I. I would like to give her the MagicBands for Christmas. Our trip is in January. Can I get the MagicBands shipped early?

    Hi Michele!

    What a wonderful gift for your daughter this Christmas! I know she will be beyond excited and thrilled to have a mother and daughter get away to Walt Disney World. January is generally a fairly quiet time for a visit as well so the crowds are down with the exception of Martin Luther Kings weekend. Even during that time it is not bad.

    Magic Bands are given to each resort guest complimentary and can be personalized ahead of time with the choice of color and name on the back. However, knowing exactly when they will be shipped to you is not simple. It could be at least two weeks ahead of your visit or just a week. My son got his over two weeks ahead for this recent vacation while my daughter did not get hers until about 6 days ahead of departure. Unfortunately, we can’t predict or request shipping. Just make sure shipping addresses are correct on your profile.

    My suggestion is to consider ordering a special Magic Band through the Disney Store and wrap that up for her for Christmas. This will guarantee that you will have a surprise and she will also enjoy having a very special one for her visit versus the plain colored ones that are complimentary. The bands that you purchase just need to be linked to each guest and they will work as the colored ones work for you.

    Make sure you video this great surprise and let us know if you have any planning questions for the January trip!
