    Is it possible to get the magic band sent to us earlier? We are coming to Orlando about a week before our resort reservations and I am worried that they won't arrive before we leave.

    Hi Agness,

    Thank you for visiting us today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Is your vacation coming up soon? I hope so, but even if it is next year, there's no better time than now to start planning.

    MagicBands are awesome. They carry your Theme Park Tickets, your FastPass+ selections and even your pictures and videos captured by the Disney PhotPass Service photographers. Even better! If you are staying at a Disney Resort Hotel, they will be the keys to your room, and you can even use them to charge purchases throughout the Resort to your room account.

    The deadline to customize your MagicBands so they can be shipped to your house ahead of time is at least 11 days before your Check-In. It can then take about a week to get to your house, so do this as soon as possible. For example, for my latest trip, the MagicBand arrived home about three and a half weeks in advance.

    One last tip: you can do Online Check-In up to 60 days in advance. And if you add a credit card on file, you may be able to skip the Front Desk and head straight to your room. Happy planning!
