    Hi There!!! It is possible to have the magic bands and the luggage tags shipped before the customization time is up? It is possible that no one will be home when they arrive and I don't want anyone taking them before I get home.

    Hi Desiree,

    Thank you for bringing your question to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. MagicBand arrival day is always super exciting in my house! It’s such a thrill to open the package and realize your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is right around the corner.

    MagicBands are shipped approximately one month before your arrival date, and there is currently not an option to request early shipment. MagicBand fulfillment typically takes approximately 11 days, so once you receive the email that your package has been shipped, keep an eye on the mail. I used to live on a very busy street where packages would magically disappear (and not the good kind of magic), so I completely understand your concern.

    I’m wishing upon a star that your MagicBand package will make it to you safe and sound. But rest assured that, in the event that it doesn’t, you will be able to pick up replacement MagicBands when you check in to your resort hotel; just be aware that you won’t be able to customize the color or have names printed inside.

    As for Disney’s Magical Express, I just came back from a very last-minute trip and had neither luggage tags nor a MagicBand, but the Transportation Cast Members at the airport looked up my reservation number, connected it to my baggage claim receipt, and I was all set. If you don’t have the Magical Express luggage tags on your bags, check in with the Magical Express Cast Members at the airport and they will be happy to assist you.

    Desiree, I’m keeping my fingers crossed for you for a successful package delivery. Wishing you a magical vacation!
