    We are arriving Sept 26 to Disney World. Do you we are magic bands in advance to do the on line check in? We are from Canada so we wont receive them until we arrive.

    Hi Anna,

    Your upcoming trip to Walt Disney World is literally just around the corning...you must be bursting with excitement! As a fellow Canadian, I would be so pleased to help you out with your question.

    While currently MagicBands do not ship to Canada (or anywhere outside the United States), MagicBands for each guest in your travel party will be waiting for you at the Front Desk of your Resort hotel and can be picked up at check in. Please don't let that prevent you from completing Disney Resort Online Check-In, as that will still expedite your check-in process once you arrive at the Resort.

    If you happen to have a MagicBand from a previous trip within the last two yEARs, you can certainly bring those MagicBands along as a backup until you receive your new ones. The RFID technology in the MagicBands generally have a lifespan of about two years, and each MagicBand linked to your account can be used interchangeably as long as they continue to be active.

    Typically I always bring an old MagicBand along each time I travel to Walt Disney World, which I use to check in with Disney's Magical Express until I receive my new MagicBand at my Resort hotel.

    I hope this information is helpful for you, Anna. Wishing you a MAGICAL upcoming Disney vacation!
