    How long does it take to receive tickets/Magic Bands after purchase? We bought ours on December 11.

    Howdy, Tricia! Magic Bands are one of my favorite parts of a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, and I know you’re excited about yours! Here is some more information about receiving your bands.

    When you log onto My Disney Experience, you’ll find you can personalize your Magic Bands with names and color choices up to 11 days before your reservation. After that, your MagicBands are complete and shipping begins. You also have the option to receive your bands upon check-in at your resort desk, but I love to get my little box in the mail; it means my vacation is closer! Depending on where you live, it can take 1-2 weeks for your Magic Bands to arrive. If you are ordering through the Shop Disney Parks app then shipping could take 5-9 business days. Express shipping is available at additional expense if speed is vital.

    I have collected a few MagicBands over my past vacations, including limited edition bands and interactive designs purchased from Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. as well as the included bands for resort guests.

    Don’t forget that Disney’s Magic Bands give you the convenience of Park tickets and FastPass+ reservations right on your wrist! If your family is staying on-property, you can even use the MagicBand to make Disney purchases and open your hotel room. Be sure to wear your Magic Bands during travel (don’t pack them!) so you can easily board Disney’s Magical Express once you arrive at Orlando MCO airport.

    Have a magical vacation! ~Lindsey
