    Hi. We are from Canada and meeting my cousin and her family from the UK at port orleans Disney. We have our magic bands, but I thought I would be nice to purchase magic bands for them , so it would a nice surprise upon their check in. Is this possible?

    Hi Jillian. Welcome to planDisney!

    The recently retired nighttime spectacular, Enchantment, had a great theme song called "You Are the Magic." And what I love about your question is that it embodies that phrase. Of course, the Walt Disney World Resort has plenty of magic, but the real magic is made by Cast Members who work there and the Guests that visit. What a wonderful gesture! Your cousin and family are in for such a great surprise!

    At this time, MagicBands and MagicBand+ cannot be ordered ahead of time for international Guests through their My Disney Experience account. However, you are still able to purchase them from shopDisney and have them mailed to their resort. Just make sure to check the shipping timelines so that it arrives a little before their stay (preferably no more than a week before they arrive). Of course, you can always have them shipped to you and then send the package yourself. Please check out the Mail Services page for guidelines on how to mail the items and any charges that may apply to receiving packages. I've also found calling the resort to let them know it's coming is a good idea. Another idea is sending them a Disney Gift Card for them to pick out their own bands when they arrive at their resort. There are many merchandise locations that sell them, probably even right at their Disney Resorts Collection Hotel.

    Jillian, your trip is already off to a magical start and you haven't even arrived yet! And don't forget to check out the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, which starts on July 27, 2023, and goes until November 18, 2023. I know many of those Global Marketplaces are calling my name and I'm sure at least a few are calling yours!

    If you have any other questions, please don't hesitate to reach out!
