    My trip is for sept 5 and I customized my magic bands almost 3 months ago. My understanding is they would be mail to my home . Would I have had to purchase all theme park tickets before they are shipped? So far I have only purchased 1 wdw park hopper tic

    Hi Geraldine! Congratulations on your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World Resort. I'm so delighted to hear you've already customized your MagicBands you're definitely on top of things. We love selecting fun wacky names and switching up the colors.

    MagicBands are usually mailed out about a month before your arrival hang in there it's almost time. Be on the lookout for the "Incredibles" box I still get tickled every time our new MagicBands arrive because it always means exciting times are not far off!

    You're going to love your MagicBands! These high tech colorful accessories serve as your key to the world during your Walt Disney World vacation - taking care of everything from your room key, theme park ticket, access to FastPass+ selections, PhotoPass card and optional payment account all in one. It is wonderful being able to park my purse and travel light - just tap and go!

    And NO, don't worry you do not have to purchase your theme park tickets for your MagicBands to be shipped, though having your park tickets in advance will allow you to select your FastPass+ experiences up to 60 days before your arrival date. Taking advantage of the new FastPass+ service is definitely worthwhile, it makes experiencing some of your favorite attractions a breeze.

    Wishing you a magical and memorable Disney vacation!
