    How do I order my magic bands and how long do they take to deliver?

    Hiya Nancy!

    Welcome to planDisney! I love using my MagicBand and MagicBand+ when visiting Walt Disney World Resort! I wish I could just wear it year-round and use it to open my house door! That tan line would be pretty interesting on my wrist...

    The ability to pre-order a band at a discount is one of the privileges for guests staying on-site at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Once you make your Resort Reservation, you will see the option to select a MagicBand in your My Disney Experience Account. The selection of what you can pick from changes all the time so if you see something you love make sure to select it and checkout right away. Your order must be submitted 11 or more days before you arrive so that it has time to ship to your home. Shipping time varies but you will get an email from that says "Your MagicBands are on the way!" with a tracking link. I'm also from New York and I found that it usually took less than 10 days. It's the best day when that box shows up on my doorstep. 

    If you wait to order them 10 to 6 days from your arrival then the MagicBand will ship to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel. Just visit the Front Desk to pick it up. If you wait till 5 days or less before your trip then it's too late to get the discounted price and have it delivered. Don't wait too long and miss out! 

    You are allowed to have more than one MagicBand or MagicBand+ linked to your My Disney Experience Account which makes for more options in the Parks. It has become one of my favorite accessories now and I now change them out daily. From personal experience make sure to charge your MagicBand+ every day if worn or used every day. 

    If you have any more questions please feel free to let me know!

    Happy Planning!
