    I understand Fort Wilderness guests get complimentary magic bands, but how do we get them? Do they come in the mail before the trip or do we pick them up on arrival? If we want to customize them how does that work? Thanks.

    Hi Shelly!

    As you know, MagicBands are an incredibly convenient way to enjoy your Walt Disney World Resort vacation!  Luckily, all Guests of Walt Disney World Resort Hotels, including The Campsites at Disney's Fort Wilderness Resort, receive complimentary MagicBands!

    You will receive your customized MagicBands in the mail before your trip, as long as you customize them at least 11 days before your arrival.  That being said, I recommend customizing them as soon as possible so that you don't miss that deadline!  If you don't customize them before the deadline, you will still be able to pick up non-customized MagicBands at the Front Desk.

    To customize your MagicBands, you will need to log in to your My Disney Experience account, link your reservation if it has not already been linked, hover over "My Disney Experience" in the top right hand corner of the page, and select "My MagicBands and Cards" from the drop-down menu.  There, you will see the option to customize your MagicBands by choosing from eight different solid colors.  If you are interested in a printed MagicBand, you can purchase one online at ShopDisney.com or at various locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
