    When are magic bands mailed from the hotels? If I want them mailed instead of picking them up at the hotel how do I indicate this?

    Hi Rebecca!

    Thanks for your question. It is a great one! First of all, make sure you have created a My Disney Experience account. Once you have done this, link your Disney Resort Hotel Reservation to your account. You will then see the option under MagicBands and Cards to customize your MagicBand order. If you customize your MagicBands 11 or more days before you arrive, they will automatically be shipped to your home address. If you customize them 10 or less days before, they will be waiting for you at the front desk of your hotel when you check-in. I always like to have them sent to me ahead of time so I can have them ready to use when my family and I board Disney's Magical Express when we arrive at the airport. If possible, I would highly recommend customizing them far enough ahead that you have them in hand when you arrive.

    Also...did you know you can link every single part of your Disney vacation together in My Disney Experience? Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ choices and so much more. You will love it!

    I'm so happy you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel and hope you will come back if we can do anything to help with your planning.

    Have a magical day!
