    when do magic bands arrive

    Hi John,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question. I love getting Pixie Dust in my mailbox as a Disney Vacation approaches. As a guest with a reservation at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will receive complimentary MagicBands that you can personalize with your names on them. You can even customize your MagicBands by choosing one of eight solid colors. Your family can get matching MagicBands or showcase their individuality by selecting a color that suits them.

    I usually submit my MagicBand order no less than 30 days before my check-in date. I receive them about 2 - 3 weeks before my check-in date. You can place your order as late as 11 days before you arrive and your bands will ship the next day. If you place your order within 6 - 10 days before your arrival, your MagicBands will be waiting for you when you check-in to your Resort Hotel. Remember, if you are using Disney’s Magical Express you will want to make sure that you pack your MagicBands in your carry on luggage. You will need them to check-in with the Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express Welcome Center and unlock the door to your Resort Hotel room. If you need any more help before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
