    Hi! How do I get my family’s magic bands before arriving at Disney, we are coming from Georgia and I really wanted to surprise them.

    Hi Bethsaida,

    Surprising loved ones with happy Disney news is always lots of fun! Whether your family already knows they're going to the Walt Disney World Resort or not, being surprised with MagicBands will surely bring squeals of joy!

    If you'll be staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you'll first want to customize your complimentary MagicBands, and then you can expect them to arrive at your home a few weeks before your visit. The box will not be clearly marked that it's from Disney, so no worries if someone else finds it first. If you'll be staying somewhere else, you may certainly go ahead and purchase MagicBands online before you arrive. After you've surprised your Mouseketeers with them, you'll want to go ahead and link them to your My Disney Experience account so that they will be able to access your theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections. You may also use MagicBands to link any PhotoPass photos you have taken back to your account, and if you've purchased Memory Maker, it makes viewing, downloading, and sharing all those photos super simple. Isn't it great that these cute little bands can do so much?!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Bethsaida, and please let us know if you have any other questions as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation and make lots of wonderful memories to last a lifetime!
