    I have my room reservation, tickets and park reservations all set to go in April 2021. It is still giving me the option of complimentary magicbands right now. If I order them now will they still be mailed just before our trip or would they be mailed now?

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Ashley! I'm so glad to be able to answer your questions about MagicBands in advance of your trip to Walt Disney World Resort next spring. Your MagicBand opens up a world of convenience for you and you'll be able to use it to unlock your Resort Hotel room, access your Theme Park admission, and even collect Disney PhotoPass pictures so let's chat about how to order one and when you can expect it to be delivered.

    In the recent past, MagicBands have been delivered at different times depending on when you ordered them. If you chose complimentary solid-colored MagicBands for your family, then that choice would remain on file in your My Disney Experience account and your order would be delivered to you a few weeks before your vacation. If you chose to upgrade your MagicBand, then you would pay for it immediately and it would be shipped at the time of purchase. We don't quite know exactly how MagicBands will be shipped now that we're in the phased re-opening process of the Theme Parks and Resort Hotels, but I would proceed with your order with the information we know now. If you choose to go with the complimentary MagicBands, then you will likely receive them much closer to your trip than you would if you ordered them from shopDisney.com or went with the upgraded option. 

    I hope this answers your question, Ashley, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation!
