    We are still planning on ordering magicbands for our trip. How close to our trip should I complete the order so that they are delivered to our house rather than picking them up at the front desk of our resort?

    Hey there, Ashley. Thanks for stopping by planDisney and allowing us to help in your trip planning!

    MagicBands are more than just cute accessories that allow guests to express some personality, they also serve as useful tools that help guests access vacation choices during their stay. While MagicBands are no longer a complimentary inclusion with Walt Disney World vacation packages or stays, there are still a number of ways to use this convenient tool. Guests who already have MagicBands from a previous visit can link the existing MagicBands to the My Disney Experience account associated with the new trip and get a second life out of them. Alternatively, guests can purchase discounted MagicBands pre-arrival as part of the trip planning process. To do so, simply visit My MagicBands and Cards. It's important to note that the discount applies only pre-arrival and cannot be applied once the traveling party arrives at Walt Disney World. It sounds like you've selected this option and plan to purchase MagicBands for your upcoming trip ahead of time. I'm glad that you've made that decision; my family really enjoys the freedom of using a MagicBand as well as the fun of expressing our Disney style on our wrists. I hope your family agrees! 

    MagicBand fulfillment and shipping takes approximately eleven days. If it were my vacation and receiving the MagicBands prior to our departure was a high priority, I'd definitely allow a little extra time. I'd recommend placing your order two to three weeks in advance just to be sure. 

    I hope that helps, Ashley. Don't hesitate to drop another question if we can be of further assistance.

I'm Darcie, and my friends would be the first to tell you that Disney trip planning (especially dining!) is my love language. Of course, the vacations my family enjoys today look much different than they did when our kids were little, but while some of our favorite activities have evolved, Disney destinations still top our travel wish lists. Let's work together to plan a downright dreamy vacation for your family! Learn More About Darcie
