    Hello, I just paid off my trip with my friend for the upcoming summer. Does anyone know when to expect the magic bands and information in the mail?

    Hello Jamie,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great planning question.

    Congratulations on choosing to visit the Walt Disney World Resort this summer. Just in time for the opening of Toy Story Land too! MagicBands are my favorite piece of wearable technology when visiting the Walt Disney World Resort. They can unlock the door to my resort hotel room, allow me to enter theme parks, redeem my FastPass+ selections, charge purchases back to my hotel room account and upload photos to my Memory Maker account. It is truly stylish and magical. Before your MagicBands can be shipped, you must place your order in My Disney Experience online or from the app.

    When you are ready to place your order, go to the "MagicBands and Cards" tab in My Disney Experience. You will confirm your shipping address before customizing the color of your MagicBands. You can personalize your band with your name listed on the inside and then confirm your order. You have up to 30 days before your arrival to make changes to your customized MagicBands before they are shipped to you. You should receive your MagicBands approximately three weeks before your check-in date. They will already be linked to your My Disney Experience account. If you plan to use Disney’s Magical Express Transportation and have already confirmed your flight information, you can expect to receive your luggage tags and travel information 2-3 weeks before your arrival.  There is a lot of Pixie Dust heading to your mailbox in June. If you have any more questions before you arrive, please come back and visit us again.

    See ya real soon,
