Can you request magic bands early?

Hi,
I have a split stay…arriving for 12/26….then going on a cruise on 12/30.

I am going back to WDW 1/4. I requested my magic bands but for my 1/4 trip it says I can customize till 12/24.

If they ship them then I will be gone already

Has anyone requested them to mail the bands earlier?
Thanks
Kerri

Don't worry if you miss your second set of bands though. You will be able to use your first set for both parts of your trip. Each band has a chip that reads your MDEx profile in Disney's database. Nothing is actually stored on them.

If you really want both sets for your trip you could try calling Disney to see if they could be shipped to your resort instead of your home.

Hang onto your bands when you get home. You will be able to bring them back and use them on future trips.

Oh thats good to know…..I'm surprised they will mail a second set then….seems like a waste of money.
Thanks

split stays are actually rare, so 99% of guests don't have bands yet. I suspect as time goes on there will be a question "do you need bands?" when you make a reservation.

I don't believe they will ship your bands that close to your trip. That is the final day to customize the bands and not get the gray ones at check-in. If you have your bands customized by 30 days from your check-in date they will ship them, but if you wait until later or by 12/24 then the bands will be waiting for you at check-in.

Lol. I have four separate consecutive reservations in January. We are getting sets for each part of our trip.

That's a fluke date for customization. Makes no sense. I would probably customize early (with all our sets we are making up silly or short inspirational words to out in the bands and I'm getting different colors. Accessories, you know. ) then I would check back to see if that error is fixed later.

Rare….always knew I was special I love split stays…this one is a three way with the cruise:good vibes…in the future that makes sense

Yea I picked different colors as well for easy spotting.
