    I ordered magic bands because it said they would be shipped if not ordered within a certain amount iunt of time, to the hotel we're staying at but they were shipped to my address and will not arrive in time. what do I do?

    Hi there, Megan!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for stopping by with an excellent Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question. Oh boy! Your stay-cation at The Most Magical Place on Earth begins tomorrow... I bet you can hardly wait! There's nothing quite like checking into a cozy Disney Resort hotel. No matter how many Walt Disney World Resort trips my family enjoys, the grand "Welcome Home" to our Resort hotel never gets old!

    Megan, I'm so sorry to hear that your MagicBand order may not arrive before you depart for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. I can understand your disappointment, but I don't want you to worry - you'll still be able to access the magic during your special springtime stay-cation! First, I encourage you to stop by the Front Desk once you arrive at your Disney Resort hotel. They may be able to provide an update on your MagicBand order status and the best path forward. Alternatively, the friendly Cast Members at your Resort hotel can provide you with physical "Key to the World" cards that offer many of the same benefits that MagicBands would: unlocking the door to your room, allowing you to enter the theme parks, etc.

    Another option would be to utilize Disney MagicMobile service during your stay, Megan. This complimentary service allows Guests to use their mobile device to tap in at the theme park turnstiles, redeem Lightning Lane entry selections, link Disney PhotoPass media, and more! Did you know you can also use the My Disney Experience mobile app to unlock the door to your Resort hotel room? I recommend ensuring you have the most up-to-date version of the mobile app downloaded before accessing this feature for the best experience.

    I know these solutions don't offer you quite the same experience as a MagicBand+ would, but I do hope you find them helpful, Megan. I'm wishing you and your travel party an unforgettable Walt Disney World Resort vacation filled with magical memories! If you have any additional questions throughout your stay, you can always revisit us here at planDisney. We're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
