    We are visiting wdw in feb and our Magic bands will arrive sometime in jan from what I have read but is there any way to request them to come earlier? I would love to give them to my kids for Christmas, have you ever heard of disney mailing them early?

    Hi Tara!

    I'm so jealous!  I want a Walt Disney World vacation for Christmas.  Your family is going to have such a great time making memories together in February.   What a great surprise.

    Tara, I have not heard of Disney mailing MagicBands early.   They usually ship about 3 weeks before your trip begins.   If you really want to surprise your children, you can now purchase MagicBands online at the Disney Store.  You could purchase them a different color than the ones you have customized online, and they can interchange  the MagicBands how they see fit throughout your trip.   My kids each have four colors and love to pick which MagicBand to wear each day of our vacations.  

    I hope you have a blessed holiday season and please visit us again with any further questions you may have about your upcoming Walt Disney World adventure.

    Have a Magical Day,
