    How far in advance do you have to order a pre arrival magic band when staying at the Disney Resort?

    Welcome to planDisney, Susan! I'm happy to answer your question about MagicBand and MagicBand+ today. Having this wearable tech at Walt Disney World Resort makes my vacation run so smoothly, so let's chat about the timeframe for ordering them if you want to take advantage of the discount and have them sent directly to your home or your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel.

    MagicBand and MagicBand+ purchases made 11 or more days before your reservation will be shipped to your home, and MagicBand and MagicBand+ purchases made 6-10 days before your reservation will be shipped to your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel for pick-up. Since you're fewer than 6 days out from your check-in date you won't be able to order a MagicBand+ to pick up at your Resort Hotel, but you can still purchase one once you've arrived! Your Resort Hotel will have a selection in their merchandise location, and you'll also find a good variety in large shops like the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park or Creations Shop at EPCOT. If you want to choose a MagicBand+ before you enter the Theme Parks for the first time, check out World of Disney at Disney Springs because they always have a bunch of different designs to choose from!

    I hope this answers your question, Susan, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
