    Hi, My family of 9 will be visiting Disney this month and I was wondering how to get our magic bands ahead of time. Thanks.

    Welcome back, Deb!

    Thanks for asking us another question! Guests staying at select Walt Disney World Resort hotels receive complimentary solid color MagicBands with their stay. Usually, they arrive a few weeks before your vacation. If you prefer to purchase theme park exclusive graphic MagicBands, those are available on property or from the Shop Disney Parks mobile app and the online Disney Store. You can have them shipped to your home and in just a few minutes can be linked to your My Disney Experience account and be ready to for your magical vacation. 

    From your last question, it looks like you will be staying at Disney's Port Orleans Resort during your December visit. You should be getting an email soon notifying you that your MagicBands have shipped. If you do not receive your box within six days of your arrival date, be sure to contact MagicBand Specialist who will be able to assist you. 

    I hope this helps, Deb! Please let us know if you have additional questions! 

    Wishing you many magical memories with your family!
