    Hi, I have bought tickets from the Disney website. I’d prefer not to waste time queuing in Will Call on our 1st morning. Can I buy magic bands at the airport upon landing and not bother with the physical ticket? Coming from UK and staying offsite. Thanks.

    Greetings Sharon and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I am glad to hEAR you are planning a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    You can purchase MagicBands at Orlando International Airport at two locations: Disney’s Earport at main terminal east hall and Magic of Disney located at main terminal west hall. Once you have your MagicBands, log in to My Disney Experience and link them to each person in your party. Make sure all park admission tickets are correctly assigned. When you arrive at the first theme park you are visiting, go straight to the entrance and use your MagicBands as your tickets. If you have any problems, simply talk to Cast Members and they will gladly assist you. 

    I come from Brazil, so I also suggest that international Guests who need to pick up tickets stop by Guest Relations at Disney Springs before their first park visit. This also gives these Guests the opportunity to stop by World of Disney in case they would like to purchase MagicBands. If you have the time to visit Disney Springs on the day you arrive I highly recommend that you do so and also take the time to enjoy amazing dining and shopping opportunities.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Sharon! Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel, and please come back real soon if you have additional questions.

    Best magical wishes,
