    We are only 8 days away from our trip and tonight purchased our tickets and magic bands. How can we ask to pick up the bands at the hotel?

    Hi William,

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting to be so close to your next Walt Disney World vacation. It’s an exciting time to visit and I highly recommend you check out the 2020 Epcot International Festival of the Arts while you are there. Enjoy the displays of visual arts, performing arts entertainment, and some beautiful and tasty culinary arts found throughout Epcot. 

    You are going to love the ease in which your MagicBand links to your My Disney Experience account, putting your park tickets and FastPass+ selections right there on your wrist. The MagicBand also links your Disney PhotoPass photos and videos to your account. All of this is conducted simply by making contact with your MagicBand to the designated touch points. If you are staying in a Walt Disney World Resort, your MagicBand will also act as a room key providing entry to your resort room and allow you to charge food and merchandise purchases throughout Walt Disney World to your room. 

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you will automatically receive a MagicBand for each guest in your party. If you purchased your MagicBands with a Disney Resort hotel reservation, they will automatically be shipped to your resort since your vacation is about to begin. If you purchased your MagicBands through, you will need to contact Shop Disney and edit your purchase shipping address, changing it to your resort address. This will ensure that your MagicBands are sent to your resort rather than to your home address. 

    I hope that this information helps you to have a wonderful vacation in The Most Magical Place on Earth! Please stop back by if we can help answer any more of your vacation questions.
