    My vacation is a little over two weeks with WDW at the end. The website is vague on when I will receive my magic bands. Am I safe to put my home address or should I use an address for a place on my vacation that I am staying at for a week?

    Hi Scott,
    Your receipt of your Magic Bands depends on many factors, including the speed of the good old United States Postal Service. It is difficult to determine when they will be personalized and shipped. I would personalize your bands as early as possible and confirm your shipping address; if you choose to have them delivered to your pre-Disney vacation address, consider whether or not they would hold the box for you if it arrived before you did.

    Sorry to be so vague in this response, but the honest answer is that the delivery time can vary based on how many guests are staying in Walt Disney World Resorts at the same time as you are (meaning they could be making LOTS of personalized Magic Bands) and your local postal service delivery schedule. A third option would be to have your package delivered to a family member or neighbor and having them forward it to you if you have already departed for your vacation.

    If you opt to not personalize bands, some non-personalized gray bands will be waiting for you and your party when you check in to your resort.

    I hope this advice is helpful! Please come back and see us if you have any additional questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy B.
