    Hi There! Is it possible to have Magic Bands sent earlier than 3-4 weeks prior to check in?

    Hello Natalie and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    We are so glad that you brought your question to us. There is nothing quite like getting that magic package containing MagicBands!  It is always a cause for celebration at our house.  

    After some exhaustive research, I have discovered that MagicBands are actually mined by the Seven Dwarfs! Now that Snow White is living her happily ever after, Doc, Grumpy, Bashful, Sleepy, Happy, Dopey, and  Sneezy spend their days creating these miracles of magical technology. As you can imagine, they are on a very tight schedule. So, unfortunately, we must wait patiently for them to arrive a few weeks before check-in.

    Your other option would be to order specialized MagicBands from Shop Disney. There is a cost, but there is a fantastic array of choices to match up to the personalities of your traveling companions.  You could then receive your MagicBands well ahead of your trip.

    I hope this helps with your planning. Hi Ho, Hi Ho, its off to answer questions I go!

    See ya real soon,
