    I have a reservation and ordered magic bans how long before I receive them

    Hi Margaret!

    I bet you are getting excited for your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World in February! My kids and I love selecting and receiving our Magic Bands for each trip! During our last vacation, I was thrilled to customize a sparkly pink Magic Band. While Magic Bands typically take 11 business days to arrive, this timing can vary depending upon a variety of factors, such as inclement weather and holidays. A good rule of thumb is to allow a solid two weeks to receive them. 

    If you don't receive your Magic Bands prior to your trip, don't fret! You can inform a Cast Member at the front desk of your resort hotel when you arrive and they will provide Magic Bands for your party. 

    You can also purchase your Magic Band on or in the parks and resorts when you arrive. During our last trip, my son purchased the limited edition SpiderMan Magic Band from Disney's Hollywood Studios and we were able to easily link the band to his My Disney Experience account. 

    Your Magic Band can be used to unlock your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, enter the park, make purchases, and link your photos to PhotoPass. I love that I can scan my Magic Band with the PhotoPass photographer and see my photos in the My Disney Experience mobile app moments later! 

    I hope you have a magical vacation!
