    Thank you in advance. Would some info on these armbands. Do they come in the mail before you arrive or do you get them when you check in and if you want them in advance are they still customizable?

    Welcome back Kim!

    I am so glad to see you are coming back to Walt Disney World!

    You are going to love the new Magic Bands. They serve as your Disney's Magical Express 'ticket' and room key, hold your theme parks tickets and FastPass+ ticket and can be tapped at dining and merchandise location throughout the resorts and theme parks to charge items to your room.

    When staying at a Walt Disney World resort, you can customize your Magic Bands using your My Disney Experience account. This customization must be done at least 31 days in advance of your trip.  You must have your resort reservation linked to your account to get the option to customize. You will receive your Magic Bands in the mail 5-15 days prior to your vacation.

    I hope this helps with your planning. If you have any more questions about your Magic Bands or any other aspect of your Walt Disney World vacation please come back and see me.

    Wishing you a *MAGICAL* vacation and a pixie-dusted day!
