    We have a trip planned for February 2017. We wanted to surprise our kids at Christmas with the news. Is there any way to receive the magic bands sooner?

    Hi, Valerie!
    Thanks so much for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I know there isn't a way to put a rush order on those MagicBands, but there may be a solution. This is one I recommended for a friend of mine and it was a hit with her family. If you try using the Shop Disney Parks app, you can peek into some of the accessories for MagicBands. I encouraged my friend to look at the MagicSlider options. Each person in her family was given the gift of a decoration for the MagicBands that arrive closer to the big vacation.

    I have other friends who used the app to find different park clothing or even ornaments as Christmas gifts. There are a lot of cool items that can bring shock and awe to the big Walt Disney World Resort gift reveal!

    I hope that helps! Let me know if you need any additional ideas or planning tips before the start of your big vacation. Have fun setting up your surprise!
