    We ordered our Magic Bands about 4 to 5 weeks ago. When can we expect to receive them in the mail?

    Hello, David, and welcome to planDisney. Thanks for stopping by to talk about MagicBands for your upcoming visit. I see that you are visiting Walt Disney World in December, it's my favorite time of year to be there. The parks are dressed up for the holidays and it just makes everything so festive and special. I think you are going to have a great time. 

    Guests, like yourself, have up until about 30 days prior to their vacation to customize their MagicBand orders. After that deadline, the processing of your order begins. Fulfillment and shipping of MagicBands typically take about 11 days give or take. I've received my MagicBand order a little sooner than that and then also a few days past due to inclement weather or holiday weekends where the mail might not run so I always just keep an eye out around that time. When this process starts, you should receive a notification via your MyDisneyExperience account letting you know so you can keep an eye out for them too.

    During your upcoming vacation, if you are looking for a little extra holiday magic, maybe consider the all-new Disney Very Merriest After-Hours party that is taking place select nights later this year. The 4-hour event is at Magic Kingdom Park and Guests will experience a wonderful Christmastime parade, a special fireworks show and even a dance party! Included with the after-hours ticket is popcorn, soda and all the ice cream treats you can eat. Plus, most attractions will remain open to enjoy with shorter wait times than you'll experience during the day. The party looks like it is going to be a lot of fun and I can't wait to check it out when I am there in December as well!  

    If for some reason, it's gotten to be 6 days prior to your vacation and you still haven't received your MagicBands, David, then you'll need to call the MyDisneyExperience and MagicBand helpline at (407) 939-4357. They'll be able to troubleshoot the issue and make sure your MagicBands are waiting at the Disney Resorts Collect Hotel that you will be staying at. 

    I hope this helps! If you have any other questions before your vacation in a few months, please feel free to reach back out and ask me. I'm here to help! Have a great day!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
