    We are planning on staying on property. We are coming from Daytona on 12/31 & are trying to figure out how to get our armbands to enjoy the park before we are able check in to the hotel. Do we have to buy them or will the resort send them to us?

    Hi Jaclyn,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBands are one of my favorite benefits of staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel because it is so wonderful to have access to your hotel room key, theme park tickets, FastPass+ reservations and room charging all with the touch of your wrist! All Guests who are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel will receive complimentary MagicBands for their trip, which you can customize for each member of your group by picking a solid color and adding his or her name to the inside of the MagicBand. Your MagicBands can be customized from the MagicBands & Cards page of your My Disney Experience account. During the customization process, you also have the option to add a shipping address for your MagicBands so they can be shipped to your home prior to your trip. Keep in mind that your MagicBands are customized about a month in advance, to allow plenty of shipping time. So I recommend that you customize them as soon as possible so you don't miss the deadline. The MagicBands & Cards page will give the exact number of days you have remaining to complete your customization. Once you have your MagicBands, you can head directly to the theme parks if you would like, so you can make the most of every magical minute of your vacation!

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
