    We are traveling to DW the first week of April. We are staying at Pop and getting conflicting info on magicbands - are they still shipped to your home or do you pick them up at check-in? Thanks so much!

    Hello Allison,
    Thanks for submitting your question to us here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel!  No need to panic about those MagicBands!  Here's what you need to know: to customize your MagicBands, you will need to link your resort hotel reservation to your My Disney Experience account.  Once you have your reservation linked, you may customize your MagicBands at any time, choosing any one of the eight fun colors and customizing the back with up to nine characters of text to identify your bands for each member of your party. 

    My Disney Experience usually gives you a date by which you need to have your MagicBands customized for shipping to your home address (US addresses only).  Should you miss that deadline, you often can still customize your bands, but they will meet you at the Check In desk of your Walt Disney World Resort upon arrival.  Reservations linked to guests that live outside of the US will be available at Check In and not in advance.

    And since you're staying at Disney's Pop Century Resort (one of my new favorites), you should know that they recently renovated all of the rooms at this resort and they are amazing!  And if you've never tried it, give the Tie Dye Cheesecake a whirl at Everything Pop Shopping and Dining. 

    Allison, I hope your upcoming trip brings you lots of wonderful memories!

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
