I have rented points, and I if understand correctly, I get free Magic Bands. But I think they are not shipped until 30 days from when we are going. I would like to get them now so we can decorate them. Is there a way to get them now? I could purchase magic bands, but would prefer to get the free ones.
You will receive your “free” magic bands 3-4 weeks before your trip even when renting points. If you log into your Disney Experience account, you can select your color, add your name, etc. It will also show you a date by which you have to have them finalized by so they can ship.
I don’t know of a way to get them earlier and, personally, I wouldn’t pay all the money to get other bands just so I had more time to decorate them.
