    How long before my trip should I expect the magic bands to arrive ? How far in advance do they release the "extra magic hours" schedule?

    Hi Rob!

    Typically, MagicBands can be customized until about 2 weeks before your trip. They are then sent to you. Usually this means they arrive about 10 days before your check-in day.

    Extra Magic Hours are usually released quite far in advance - up to six months. However, as with all park hours, they do occasionally change so it is good to double check them in the months leading up to your vacation AND even after you arrive. Sometimes extra hours are added, so it is good to keep an eye on it!

    Hope you have a wonderful vacation!
