    How far in advance of your Disney World vacation do your receive your magicbands? We are going January 23rd, but giving the trip to our kids for Christmas. It would be great if we had the bands for Christmas morning!

    Hi Kristy,

    What a great Christmas morning surprise for your family! Generally, MagicBands arrive at your house three to four weeks before your check-in date, so you might have them in time to tuck under the tree. I'm not sure whether the holidays will impact the delivery schedule.

    For my most recent trip, my MagicBands arrived 23 days in advance of my visit. 

    If you want something small to wrap to announce your Walt Disney World vacation in lieu of the MagicBands, I suggest autograph books, pins or other unique items that can be of use during your vacation. There are many great choices on the Shop Disney Parks app. Or you can wrap a gift card for each child that can be used for souvenirs during your trip.

    Thanks for checking in with the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kristy. Please let us know if you have any other questions as your visit nears. Happy holidays, and enjoy!
