    Hi Panel! We leave for WDW on 12/31, and ordered our Magic Bands on 11/29. When will we receive them? Also, will there be info in our check in folder on the latest Magic Bands & Fast Pass + rules? Things seem to change every few days! Thanks much!

    Hi there Kristy,

    Wow!  I can't think of a better way to ring in the New Year than with a vacation at the Most Magical Place on Earth.  Your trip is literally right around the corner, so I'll bet saying you're excited is an understatement!

    Typically, Magic Bands are shipped to guests about 2 weeks prior to arrival, so you should be receiving them sometime in the next few weeks.  When you check in at your resort, you'll receive a small folder containing information in the resort itself as well as activities and special events that may be offered during your stay.

    At this time, The My Disney Experience App is a great way to stay up to date on any pertinent changes that may occur within the FastPass+ system.  Have you downloaded it on your smartphone yet!?  If not, you should check it out!  It's a great tool to have.  Otherwise, if any major changes take place, you will receive a notice upon check-in.

    That's all for now, but please don't hesitate to follow up with me if I can be of further assistance as your trip approaches!

    Happy Holidays and Best Wishes, 

    Amanda F.
