    I ordered magic bands for our group. How long before the date all the magic starts will they be shipped?

    Hello, Wally!

    I’m thrilled to hEAR about your upcoming visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Have you started a countdown yet? My kids enjoy the whiteboard countdown we hang in the hallway anytime we have an upcoming trip. 

    If you are a Disney Resort Hotel Guest, make sure to link your existing reservation to your My Disney Experience account. This will allow you to begin customizing your vacation with Dining Reservations 180 days prior to your arrival, and FastPass+ reservations 60 days prior to your arrival.

    I love receiving as I call it, magical mail! Typically, your magical mail is set to be mailed to you approximately two weeks before your arrival. You will get an email, sent to the email you provided when making a reservation, as soon as your MagicBands are shipped! (Tip: Make sure to have your MagicBands selected at least 11 days prior to your arrival so that they are shipped to your home). You will also receive mail from Disney’s Magical Express around the same time if you are flying to Orlando International Airport!

    There will be so much to plan for before you arrive, that it all will only add to the anticipation excitement! If you have more questions as you continue to plan for your trip, make sure to visit us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel! We love to hEAR and help you plan for your magical visit!

    See ya real soon!
