    My husband and I are visiting WDW Christmas week, staying at Port Orleans Riverside! This is our first WDW trip as a married couple, and my husbands first time ever! We arrive on 12/22, when should we expect our magic bands to come in the mail?

    Hi Hanna!

    Oh my goodness! You are visiting Walt Disney World Resort at one of my very favorite times of the year and staying at one of my very favorite Resort hotels! I'm so excited for you!!!

    It's always such a fun day when I receive my MagicBand package in the mail!! Based on your check-in date and my personal experience, if you have already made your MagicBand selections, they should arrive approximately 11-30 days before your vacation check-in date.

    In the past, I have always received an email to let me know they have shipped. My most recent email's subject line was, "Great News: Your MagicBand package has shipped!" The email included tracking information. I, of course, tracked it all the way from Florida to Texas!

    Your vacation sounds practically perfect in every way! I know your husband will enjoy his first vacation to Walt Disney World Resort and I'm so excited it's your first trip to Walt Disney World Resort as a married couple! To me, Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is such a romantic hotel. You have chosen well. Plus - I know it's going to be beautifully decorated for the holidays!

    Enjoy every moment of your magical vacation!!
