    I'm arriving April 17th. I believe I've set up my Magic Bands. When should I expect them?

    Hi Gene, and thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with such an important question. One of the most magical days at my house is going to the mailbox and finding your MagicBands have arrived!

    You have approximately 30 days before your arrival to customize your MagicBands. Once you have placed your order online, you will receive a notification when your complimentary bands have shipped. I have usually received my MagicBands in the mail about two weeks before my check-in date.

    Remember, if you are traveling by plane and planning to use Disney’s Magical Express®, be sure to pack your MagicBands in a carry-on bag. You will need them to check in with a Cast Member at Magical Express and to unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room. I love how MagicBands can make a vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort so fun and carefree. You can use your MagicBands to access your admission tickets when you enter theme parks, charge dining and merchandise purchases back to your room and redeem your FastPass+ selections. My favorite feature is adding photos to a Memory Maker account taken by PhotoPass photographers. They are also a pretty cool fashion accessory too. Keep an eye out for that magical parcel that will be on its way to you very soon.

    See ya real soon,
