    Hi Moms (Marcy) another ?. as here in the Uk we don't receive magic bands in the post, we get them at check in. Is there a way we can choose colours at all, it looks such fun, and id love to have them in our fav character colours so we can decorate. xxxx

    Amanda! Welcome back! I am so happy to see your name pop back up with another question! Are you just bursting at the seams with all the details of your surprise surf and turf Disney trip yet? I can only imagine!

    I'm so glad that my answers have been helpful so far. Isn't planning for a Disney vacation fun?

    I checked with my friends from the UK and Canada who are on the Disney Parks Moms Panel with me to confirm their experiences with the new Magic Bands. The good news is that yes, you can choose colors ahead of time and the bands will be waiting at check in! When you log into My Disney Experience, drop down to Magic Bands and Cards and select that. When it's time you'll be able to select your resort reservations there and choose your Magic Band colors and names. I have to tell you that I have a surprise trip coming up for my kids too, and I've logged onto My Disney Experience so many times now, switching the colors back and forth. I just can't decide! Luckily, there is a clear date listed there showing me when the bands must be customized. So, I know I can continue to change my mind over and over until then! Have fun as you choose the perfect colors for your family. Your bands will then be sent to your resort for you to receive upon check in. You might also like to know that the gift shops at Walt Disney World sell some really cute Magic Bandits, which are little Disney-themed accessories that you can use to decorate your Magic Bands. I saw them there last month and can't wait to head back in a couple months on our surprise trip so my kids can pick out their favorite characters to decorate their Magic Bands. Just another way to personalize the trip!

    Have fun as you continue planning, Amanda! If you have any other questions, please stop back! I'm happy to help!
