    Hello! So my mom and I will be taking a mother/daughter trip to Disney World in July and we will be staying at Disney’s All-Star Resort. Are we automatically going to receive our Magic Bands whenever we check in? Or do we need to order them online?

    Hi Mariana,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I can imagine your excitement about this mother-daughter trip! 

    Typically, MagicBands would be mailed to you since you live in the United States. If you have not created a My Disney Experience Account, do so immediately. Once you create that account, link your resort hotel confirmation number to the account. Then, click on the link that says MagicBands and Cards. You should then be able to see the status of your MagicBands. My family has a trip planned for July and I just received notification through My Disney Experience that our MagicBands have shipped!

    If you do not receive your MagicBands in the mail, they will be waiting for you when you check-in to the resort hotel. If you are flying and planning to use Disney's Magical Express® transportation from the airport, it is best to have your MagicBands with you but, if you do not have them, just be sure to have your resort hotel confirmation number!

    Also, once you create a My Disney Experience Account, you can make your Fast Pass+ selections and link advance dining reservations. Fast Pass+ selections are simply a must-do. They shorten your wait time in line for attractions. I also highly recommend making advanced dining reservations. Restaurants can get booked quickly! 

    Mariana, I trust that this will be the most amazing mother-daughter trip. Be sure to see the Happily Ever After fireworks. I like to watch from a spot right in front of Cinderella Castle - get there at least an hour before the show!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
