    I ordered new magic bands when I made my reservation today. We are due to arrive on January 15. Will the bands be mailed to us or will they be at the resort at checkin?

    Hiya, Cathy! Welcome to planDisney!

    MagicBands are a great way to add a touch of magic to your vacation, and I love that they are an all-in-one device that connects you to all the plans you've made. Since I have older kids, I also appreciate the autonomy it gives them; they enjoy being able to grab a snack in the Parks, even if I've already headed back to the room. 

    Typically, MagicBand fulfillment and shipping takes about 11 days, so you're outside of that window by now. My son realized just a couple of days before our trip that he had lost his, so I ordered him one through My Disney Experience, and I was given instructions to pick it up at our Walt Disney World Resort hotel. I'm sure yours will be ready for you at the front desk as well! 

    Shipping to the resort hotels can even take a couple of days, and in my case, the MagicBand wasn't there until the second day of our trip. Luckily, my son was able to use Disney MagicMobile service on his phone for that first day. MagicMobile is an easy, more contactless way to access MagicBand features, like theme park entry, and you can download it through the My Disney Experience app

    You might want to use those spiffy new MagicBands, Cathy, to purchase some fun treats while in the Parks! Check out the 50th Anniversary Celebration Sips and Bites Guide for some EARidescent ideas. I hope you have a magical time!
