    Hey! Is it possible to request magic bands early? We’re taking our kids to WDW for Christmas, but on the last week of Jan 2020.. can they come by Christmas Day?

    Hi Chelsey,

    Glad you stopped by today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. January may seem so far far away, but in no time, you will be done packing your bags and it will be time to go!

    So many are the benefits for staying at a Disney Resort Hotel. Extra Magic Hours and Disney's Magical Express are two awesome perks, but every Guest also receives a complimentary MagicBand. These little beauties hold your Theme Park Tickets, FastPass+ selections, Disney PhotoPass Service memories, can be used to purchase food and merchandise, and can even open the door to your Resort Hotel room. You can also select from several fun colors and customize them with your name or a fun phrase. But they will be shipped to your home approximately 30 days before your Check-In, so it is possible they'll arrive right before Christmas.

    One last tip: as a backup, why not have a few Disney Gift Cards ready? You can buy them almost everywhere, including your local Disney Store. And you can then use them pretty much everywhere across the Resort, for food, snacks, souvenirs or even to pay for your Resort vacation package. Happy planning!

    Ricardo.
