    how soon before our scheduled trip will we receive our magic bands and do we have to link the magic bands if they are being sent to us? This is our second trip since they have started the magic bands and wonder how we find out what our pin number was?

    Hey Beth-

    I am so excited for your return to Walt Disney World Resort. I have a trip planned for the beginning of February and have received my MagicBands. They were delivered 17 days before my trip. This is by no means a hard date as some MagicBands may come sooner. On the My Disney Experience website you have the ability to customize the MagicBand color and personalize it with a name. A countdown will display the deadline to finish customizing. You have 10 days before your Disney resort arrival to customize. When that countdown expires it should take about 10 days for the MagicBand to be fabricated and delivered to your shipping destination.

    Since they are being shipped to you, all your information with the exception of your resort key will be matched to your MagicBand. No personal information is ever stored on a MagicBand and a random code securely links to an encrypted database storing your information. Since no personal information is stored you will be asked to encode a new PIN when you check in to your Walt Disney World Resort. Your resort key will then be added to the encrypted database.

    If you purchased your MagicBand through then you will need to link it to your My Disney Experience account.

    I know you are excited for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories!
