    We have our vacation booked for June 2018 my question is does our MagicBands get shipped to our house or do we pick them up when we arrive? The reason i ask is because we have planned to visit a park our first day there put parks open before check in

    Hi Mitchell,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am happy to help you with your question about MagicBands!

    Your MagicBands should be shipped to your mailing address before your Walt Disney World vacation. Be sure that your mailing address is up to date in your My Disney Experience account. Also keep an eye out because before they are shipped, you will be given the option to customize your MagicBands with a color and name using your My Disney Experience account. Your My Disney Experience account should also let you know when these have shipped.

    My family always leaves the house with our MagicBands in our backpacks, and by the time our plane lands in Orlando, they are on and we are ready to hit the theme parks! So yes, you should have your MagicBands before you leave home and should also be able to use them to get into a theme park before you head to your resort. Do be sure that you have theme park tickets linked in your My Disney Experience account so that they are also linked to your MagicBands.

    I hope that this information is helpful for you, Mitchell! Please do let us know if you have any further questions.
