Answered Question - Disney Parks Moms Panel
- After booking a pkg trip, when do you receive your magic bands? Do they come in the mail, already linked to your tickets, rooms,etc? Or do I order the bands seperately? The bands are totally new to our family and we are not quite sure of the process.

- Hi, Jennifer!
Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your excellent question about the new MagicBands! Like your family, many guests will be trying out MagicBands for the first time and have questions about this new technology, so you've come to the right place -- we here at the Moms Panel are happy to help!
I think your family will really enjoy the convenience of wearing MagicBands and not having to dig around in your pockets or bags for your park tickets, credit card or resort hotel room key. It is also very easy to use your MagicBands to access your pre-selected FastPass+ attractions. Everything you need for your vacation is literally right there on your wrist! MagicBands are waterproof so they can be worn while swimming in your Disney Resort hotel pool and at the two Disney World Water Parks.
After you have made a Disney Resort room-only or vacation package reservation, you'll want to set up your My Disney Experience account on the website. My Disney Experience offers a host of online and mobile tools which will help you plan and manage all your vacation details. You can connect everyone in your travel group, link your tickets and reservations, and make FastPass+ selections.
Once you've created your My Disney Experience account and linked your Disney Resort hotel reservations, you'll be able to customize and order your MagicBands. They will be shipped directly to your home (US addresses only) and typically take about 10 days to reach you once you've placed your order. You have until 10 days before your arrival to customize your MagicBands with your preferred name (up to 9 characters) and favorite color.
I hope this information is helpful to you in planning your trip. Please let us know if we can assist you further!
Wishing you a magical vacation!
