    When will my magic bands be mailed? Our trip starts September 9th.

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Thomas!

    I have to confess, I have a pretty big collection of MagicBands. I have the solid-colored ones in a bunch of different colors, a few celebrating my favorite characters, one with Cinderella Castle on it, and now that guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels can choose to upgrade, at a discounted price, their complimentary MagicBands to ones with designs featuring Disney Characters and theme park motifs, I definitely have my eye on a few more. Getting your MagicBands in the mail is one of the final things to tick off of your list that let you know that your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is really coming soon!

    I'd keep your eye on your mailbox, Thomas, because your MagicBands should be arriving any day now. I usually receive that pixie-dusted box anywhere from a week to a month before my vacation, so they should probably arrive in the next week or two. You'll receive an email with a tracking number as soon as your MagicBands ship, so you can follow them along on their magical journey to your door. Make sure to pack them in your carry-on luggage or wear them on your way down because you'll need them to check-in for Disney's Magical Express or to park your car at your Resort Hotel. From there on out, it will be your ticket to the theme parks, the key to your room, the way you access your FastPass+ selections and more, so it's a really good idea to keep it on your wrist all the time while you're on vacation.

    Have a magical day, Thomas!
