    when will I receive my magic bands.. We go on July 10, 2019

    Hi, Jessica!  Thanks for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    What did we ever do without MagicBands?  Wearing your MagicBand allows you to unlock your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, enter the theme parks (with valid admission), use your FastPass+ selections, and connect your Disney PhotoPass pictures to your My Disney Experience account.  During your resort hotel stay, you can even use your MagicBand to charge purchases to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room.  I love that you can do all of this without ever having to fumble through your bag or wallet.  It's all right there on your wrist!

    If you haven't done so already, log in to your My Disney Experience account and click on "My MagicBands and Cards" to personalize your MagicBands.  This can be done up to 11 days before your expected arrival date.  If you have a United States mailing address, your MagicBands will be shipped to your home, as long as you make your selections at least 11 days in advance.  Guests living outside of the United States, or guests who do not make their selections far enough in advance, will receive their MagicBands at their Walt Disney World Resort Hotel.  In my personal experience, if you personalize your MagicBands well in advance of that 11-day cut-off date, they will arrive at your home approximately three weeks prior to your trip.

    See ya real soon!
