    How long will it take to get my Magicband+ delivered if you purchased them through your vacation package? I'm hoping to get them before Christmas but our trip isn't until 7/23. Previously they were delivered a month before your reservation.

    Hiya Daniel - welcome back to planDisney!

    It's great to see you here with another question for our team of panelists ... it's been a while!

    Daniel, you were spot on to ask a question and not assume that things work the same as they always have. There have been a lot of amazing changes at Walt Disney World Resort, including the recent launch of MagicBand+.

    I wish I could provide you with a specific answer, but with the continued popularity of MagicBand+ combined with some industry-wide supply chain issues, it doesn't seem like there is a "normal" these days. For my recent vacation, I received our MagicBand+ pre-arrival order four days before our trip. I have friends who didn't receive them before their trip at all (but were taken care of by Fairy Godparent Cast Members at their Resort, of course), and others who received their pre-arrival order well in advance.

    So, long story short, it's always possible that you could receive them prior to Christmas, but I wouldn't bet money on it. If you'd hoped to use them as a way to surprise someone with a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, I would come up with a backup plan now. If you want to stick with MagicBand+ you could order some on shopDisney where shipping should easily get them to you in time. Instead, you might consider picking up some great shirts or other clothing - those you're surprising will be focused on the vacation, so in most cases, anything Disney will do!

    I know this isn't the answer you were hoping for, but my hope is that this info was still helpful. Daniel, be sure to stop by any time you have more questions!
