    My family and I have been chosen for Magic Band testing Oct 9-15 POR resort! We are very excited! When will we recieve them? We would like to surprise our daughters with the bands on their birthdays.

    Hi Ashley,

    I'm excited to be testing the MagicBands in October as well. Because the technology is still in testing, we don't know exactly how the process will work for everyone. But I can share how it worked for me.

    In the My Disney Experience app, I was given the option to customize my family's bands. The deadline was a little more than 30 days before our vacation. Our customized MagicBands arrived by mail four days after the deadline had passed, still with almost a month to spare.

    We've been able to link our dining reservations, our passes, our resort reservation and our Epcot Food & Wine Festival special events to the bands. We've also made our FastPass+ choices.

    Now the hard part: Waiting another three weeks until we head for the magic!

    I hope that helps. Please let us know if we can answer any other questions for you as you make your last-minute plans. Enjoy!
