    We are staying off site during our Disney trip in November. Tickets have been ordered, but haven't purchased Magic Bands yet....how soon do we need to order MagicBands?

    Hey, Amy!

    Your trip is just around the corner! I know you've started your countdown!

    I would go ahead and order MagicBands from the Disney Store online or from the Shop Disney Parks mobile app. It doesn't take very long to receive your "magic mail," 5-7 business days for standard shipping plus a couple more days for personalized items, but in case there are any mishaps or delays you will have plenty of time to get everything in order before your November Disney vacation! 

    I would suggest ordering your MagicBands no later than mid to late September. This gives you two months to receive the bands, link them to your My Disney Experience account, and display them on your dining room table as your reminder that your trip is just around the corner! Well, that's what we do, anyway!  I love to peek at our MagicBands on the table! They make me happy! I have to remind myself about a week before the trip to put them in our luggage! 

    Happy planning, Amy! If you have more questions, visit with us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!
