    I recently ordered complimentary Magic Bands from Disney, and the confirmation email they sent said the bands would be shipped ten days before our check-in date. Is there any way to have Disney ship them earlier than that?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Donna!

    When ordering MagicBands for your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel stay, the order confirmation email does state that you should expect your bands to arrive 10 business days prior to your vacation.  In my experience, I usually receive my MagicBand order about 3 weeks ahead of time.  When ordering the complimentary MagicBands, there is not a way to expedite the order.

    If you would like to have your MagicBands sooner, one thing you could try is upgrading at least one band to one of the patterned styles.  The fulfillment process works a little differently when an order includes an upgraded MagicBand, and as soon as the order is finalized and paid for, it will be prepared to ship, even if your vacation is months away.

    An order that includes only complimentary solid-colored bands may be updated or changed until it ships, so you should still have time to edit your order.  An order that contains at least one MagicBand upgrade, even if the remaining bands are the complimentary solid-colored MagicBands, is final once you checkout and no further edits or changes can be made.

    If it is important to you to have MagicBands ahead of time, say perhaps for a gift-giving occasion, you can also place an order through shopDisney.  Any and all MagicBands assigned to a Guest's profile may be used interchangeably, and are reusable for any future Walt Disney World Resort vacations, provided they are still in good working order.

    Donna, please come back to the Moms Panel again if you have any additional questions.  We are always happy to help.  Enjoy your stay!
