    Hi, my family and I are planning our Disney vacation for the end of March 2018. We haven’t completely booked everything yet, but when is the soonest we could get our magic bands? Can they come in the mail before our trip as soon as I book with the resort?

    Hello Rachel, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You must be so excited about your upcoming vacation.

    If you have already booked a reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, your MagicBands will be on their way shortly. When you log on to My Disney Experience, you will see a countdown telling you how many days you have left to customize your MagicBands for you and everyone in your travel party. You will typically receive them in the mail a week or two before your arrival.

    Remember, if you are using Disney’s Magical Express, to pack your MagicBands in your carry on luggage. You will need them to check in at Magical Express and to unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room.

    If you have any other questions before you arrive, please visit us again with your questions.

    See ya real soon,
