    How do magic bands come in the mail? Are they covered up or will they be clearly marked with Disney? Our trip is a surprise!

    Hi Lauren!

    Surprise trips to Walt Disney World Resort are the best! I have surprised my kids multiple times with visits to Walt Disney World Resort or sailings on Disney Cruise Line and it's always so much fun to see the joy in their eyes when they realize where we are going.

    MagicBands are a great addition to a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because it's so nice to have access to your theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and Memory Maker account with just the touch of your MagicBand. And since it sounds like you will be staying at one of the Disney Resort hotels, you will also be able to make purchases to your room account and open your hotel room door with your MagicBands! If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, then your MagicBands will arrive in a discreet, plain white box. In my experience, the sender on the return address has been the Experience Connection Center. The box is such a great surprise that I've been able to pick up this box from our mailbox with my kids and they had no idea that there was magic inside!

    Once you open the box, your beautiful MagicBands will be visible, so be careful about when and where you choose to open the box. Let us know if we can help you with ideas to surprise your family or if you have additional questions as you continue planning. T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
