    We are going to Disney World in Early November and I was wondering when will they send out my information packet and magic bands?

    Hello Marianne, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I am so thrilled that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort soon. Now that you are putting the finishing touches on what will be a fantastic vacation, you can expect to receive some Pixie Dust in your mailbox very soon.

    Your MagicBands will ship once your order has been finalized. The last day to change your order is usually 30 days prior to your check-in date. If you sign in to your My Disney Experience account and click on the MagicBands and Cards tab, you will see how many days are left to change or modify your MagicBand order. You will receive a notification in My Disney Experience telling you when your MagicBands have shipped, along with a USPS tracking number. Your MagicBands typically arrive 3 weeks prior to your check-in date.

    If you have made a reservation to use Disney’s Magical Express, you will receive your travel information and magical yellow luggage tags about 3-4 weeks prior to your arrival date. With all the excitement of your upcoming trip, it is important to remember to pack your MagicBands in a carry on bag. You will need them to check in with a Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center and unlock the door to your hotel room when you arrive at your resort. You are going to have a great time. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
