    We check into the Hilton at Disney Springs (good neighbour) on the 18th August 2019. We check into Boardwalk on the 26th, is it possible to pick our magic bands up early so we can use them from the 18th?

    Hi Jo!

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Your upcoming visit is just around the river bend and I couldn't be more excited for you to visit Walt Disney World Resort!

    A split stay between two different hotels is a great way to plan an extended visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth! You are going to have the ease of access to Disney Springs so you can shop 'til you drop, then experience all the wondEARful benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel during your time at Disney's BoardWalk Inn. If you customize your MagicBands, deliveries happen each day in the wee hours of the morning for Guests that will be checking in that day. This means that unfortunately you are unable to pick them up early as they simply won't be there. Even if you choose not to customize and receive the grey bands that are kept in stock, unfortunately they won't be able to provide them until check in date either.

    The good news is a lot of what can be done with the MagicBand can also be done using your mobile device with the My Disney Experience Mobile App. As everyone always has their phones in their hand, you'll find this is still very convenient for scanning entry into the parks and FastPass+ at each attraction. As you'll be visiting from abroad, I also wanted to let you know that there is complimentary WiFi throughout the entire property so you shouldn't require any additional coverage. 

    I hope this helps in planning your upcoming visit! Please let us know if we can help in any other way.
