    We are planning our trip for September. Is it possible to have the magic bands arrive earlier than they normally do? I’ve heard they arrive a few weeks before the vacation but we want them sooner to show the kids. Tia!

    Hi Morgan!

    Are you and your family getting so excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation? You'll be visiting at a wonderful time of year as Epcot's International Food & Wine Festival will be in full swing, and so will Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party!

    I absolutely love the convenience behind MagicBands. Your tickets, FastPass+ reservations, Photo Pass, Dining Plan Entitlements, even a credit card can all be linked to these wonderful little beauties. And don't worry about anyone doing losing their bands; I took my own family two weeks ago where my husband lost his MagicBand TWICE and each time it was a simple 5 minute stop at Guest Services to pick up a new one. His old bands were deactivated and we were back to having fun in no time!

    MagicBands that are included in your Walt Disney World Resort guest room do ship 30 days before the start of your vacation. Unfortunately there is not a way to get those bands any faster, however you are more than welcome to purchase a MagicBand from ShopDisney.com that is themed to your favorite Disney Character, Star Wars hero, and even the social media famous Purple Wall. These can be linked to your My Disney Experience Account as soon as you get them or a Cast Member would love to help when checking-in to your Resort Hotel.

    I hope your children are so excited to meet Mickey and his pals, and We'll See You Real Soon, Morgan!
