    Hi! We (2 people) are going for 4 nights, and have 2 friends joining us for the 2 middle nights. Do they get free Magic Bands? Would they get them at check in or can they get them before hand? We want to make sure we have the same FastPass Reservations

    Hello Max, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with an important planning question.

    I am so excited to hear that you will be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort this month! You are going to have a magical time with friends joining you too. I am happy to tell you, as long as your friends are listed on your reservation, they will receive complimentary MagicBands. If you want them customized, it is recommended that you complete your MagicBand order at least 30 days before your check-in date. One thing to note is that MagicBands can only be shipped to one address. Your friends will be able to receive MagicBands when they arrive if they were unable to customize them in advance.

    You can make FastPass+ selections for you and your friends as long as everyone has valid theme park admission tickets linked to their My Disney Experience accounts. If your friends have their own accounts, now is the time to send an invitation to connect with them in your My Family and Friends List. Once everyone is connected, you can make FastPass+ selections 60 days prior to your arrival date and for the entire length of your stay for everyone. Good luck with your planning.

    See ya real soon,
