    We have reservations at a Walt Disney World Resort. Will our Magic Bands be sent in the mail to us or, will we receive them at our resort when we check in?

    Hi, Pamela!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thanks for reaching out to us to help you plan your big vacation in June!

    If you have a My Disney Experience Account, you can connect your resort reservation into your itinerary. Once that's in the system, you have 30 days before your visit to Walt Disney World Resort to customize your MagicBands. Disney Parks will send you the MagicBands in the mail, and you'll have them in time for your arrival in Orlando. If you forget and customize your bands nine to six days before your arrival, your custom bands will be waiting for you at the resort. If you completely forget, your travel party will get non-customized bands (the gray version) when you arrive.

    If do you customize your MagicBands before you arrive and you are flying into the Orlando International Airport, be sure to sign up for Disney's Magical Express. With the help of your MagicBand, you can check in for the bus and head to your resort right after you arrive. A Disney Cast Member will snag your luggage and deliver it to your room without you lifting a finger! (If you don't have your MagicBand, don't worry, just have an ID and your reservation number with you.)

    Let me know if I can help you with any additional questions that pop up before your arrival!

I’m a mom, wife and goldendoodle dog owner who is not afraid to ride a fast roller coaster again and again. I love to travel - which is good since I telework with a job in Washington, DC. I’ve visited Disneyland and Walt Disney World multiple times and it’s fed into my belief that you’re never too old to have fun. I run when I can and recently earned my runDisney Coast to Coast medal! I also love photography and founded an online special needs community. Learn More About Jen
