    how far in advance are the magic bands mailed out prior to check in date

    Hi Michelle,

    Thanks for visiting Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    I hope you're getting excited for your Walt Disney World vacation!

    You likely already know that you'll receive a MagicBand automatically if you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel. If you personalize the MagicBand at least 11 days before your arrival at your Walt Disney World Resort, it will be shipped to you.

    The timing of the MagicBand shipment  — how far in advance you'll receive it — depends on when you place your order for the customized MagicBands. In my experience, I have typically received my personalized MagicBands with my selected colors and names within a week of when I submit the order. After you submit your order for your customized MagicBands, watch your email for an update with a subject like "Great News: Your MagicBand package has shipped!" You can also watch your My Disney Experience account for notifications on the status of your MagicBand shipment.

    Michelle, please do let us know here at Disney Parks Moms Panel if you have any questions as you plan your vacation. We're here for you and happy to help you plan your most magical stay.

    Enjoy your Disney!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
