    I customized our Magicbands. Will these be sent to me? Im 46 days out from our arrival date.

    Dear Issaku,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! MagicBands are such a wonderful addition to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. It sounds from your question that you were able to log on to My Disney Experience and customize your MagicBands for your family. This is always such an exciting time for my family when we take the time to choose the colors that we each want, and to type our names in! It really makes the upcoming trip feel real. 

    Typically, you have until about 30 days before your hotel reservation to finish customization of your MagicBands (there is a countdown on the site so that you don't miss the window), and then (if you are in the US, which it looks like you are) they will be shipped to your provided address. For our international visitors, the MagicBands will be waiting for your at your resort at check-in. After that period of customization is complete, you should receive an alert that your MagicBands are shipping out to you, and a tracking number so that you can plan ahead for when they will arrive. They typically arrive 2-3 weeks before your reservation date, but that may vary based on your location and the shipping speed.

    Don't forget that you can also use My Disney Experience ahead of time to make your FastPass+ reservations for attractions. You don't have to wait for the MagicBands to arrive to do this. 

    Have a magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    -Jan K.
