    How can a Canadian get a Magic band before Disney Trip? I had my bands picked out in my cart but could not get them shipped to Canada. Now, when I search for the bands I wanted they are sold out? What’s going on with magic bands? Lisa

    Hi Lisa, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you so much for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian! 

    I’m afraid I’m going to have to be the bearer of bad news. Although Canadians used to be able to pre-order their Disney Bands (also known as MagicBands) and have them shipped to their Disney Resorts Collection hotel prior to their stay (because they couldn’t be shipped internationally), that service was unfortunately discontinued recently. This means that you’ll have to buy your family’s new Disney Bands during your stay at Walt Disney World Resort and you can’t pre-purchase them. 

    That said, I’ve had a chance to poke around in the various Merchandise Locations that sell Disney Bands recently and I was blown away by the different choices that are now available! There are far more options in the stores than what we used to see for online pre-orders, so you’ll definitely be able to find one with colours and a design that will delight every member of your party. If you did have your heart set on a specific band, I recommend finding a picture of it online and then asking a Cast Member at a merchandise location that specializes in Disney Bands (one of my favourites is Curtain Call Collectibles at Magic Kingdom Park) to see whether they have it in stock or whether it’s available at another location. 

    Once again, I’m sorry that I wasn’t able to give you the answer that you hoped for. But please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re happy to help when we can!

    Have a Magical Day,
