    Hello - We have booked a trip to Disney and are staying off site. We are interested in purchasing Magic Bands for our party - how do we order these, where can we collect them, if they can not be sent to us in the UK? Thank you for your help!

    Welcome to planDisney Natalie. Thanks so much for bringing your question here today!

    Disney Bands (known as a MagicBand or MagicBand+ in the United States) are colourful and collectible wristbands that provide electronic access to select Disney Resort hotel rooms, virtual theme park tickets, and more. If you have purchased the Magic Ticket available to U.K. residents, you can access your Memory Maker using the band. The MagicBand+ goes one step further and lets you engage with Disney moments like never before with lighting effects and gesture recognition. 

    Please know a Disney Band is not required to enter the Parks. Most features offered can be accessed through the My Disney Experience App. That said, we have always had great fun choosing from the abundance of options. There is something for everyone, from a Star Wars aficionado to Disney Princesses. Disney Bands have, in my experience, been readily available in various retail locations throughout Walt Disney World. Once purchased, it took just a moment to link it with our My Disney Experience App, and Cast Members are always help to help if needed. 

    Top tip - The My Disney Experience App is a great help during your entire Walt Disney World adventure. It provides up-to-date ride wait times, Mobile Food and Beverage orders, and more. Virtual queues are accessed through the app, usually for the most popular, newer rides. Right now, that includes Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which is not to be missed! 

    Natalie, I wish you the best time on your Walt Disney World adventure, and please pop back if you need anything else. Have a magical day! Louise
