    I ordered my magic bands today and am worried they will not arrive in time. What happens if I don't receive before going to the airport?

    Hi Nick,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question!

    Since you’re just a few days out from your vacation (YAY!), you’ll want to go ahead and order the MagicBands. If you ordered them already, hopefully, they’ll make it before you leave for the Walt Disney World Resort. Disney suggests purchasing at least 11 days before your vacation if you want them sent to your home. If you still need to purchase them, it would be better if they are shipped to your Disney Resorts Collection hotel since it’ll be closer to the six day window Disney suggests.

    If timing is still a concern, Hakuna Matata, I suggest reaching out to the My Disney Experience and MagicBands help desk to see if they could potentially give you a status update on your MagicBands. If they don’t come in the next few days (if you already purchased), then you’ll want to check with the front desk when you arrive to the Resort next week.

    Remember that you can always access your room with your digital key in the My Disney Experience mobile app as a second option! From the home screen, select the three horizontal lines in the right corner, then choose “Resort Hotel”. Once you have your room number, just scroll down to “Unlock Door” and hold the Mickey head on your screen to the one on the door. You’ll hear a click and you’ll be all set to enter!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you prepare for your vacation next week! If you have any other last minute planning or vacation questions in the meantime, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
