    I am Canadian and want to order magic bands prior to our trip. Can you offer some advice on this. We used to have them sent to the resort but I hear that’s not a thing anymore :(

    Hiya, Julie. Thanks for reaching out to us with your question!

    At this time, our friends from Canada cannot pre-order Disney Bands for a discount through their My Disney Experience account. Instead, you can purchase a new band when you arrive at the resort at one of the many merchandise locations or even purchase them at one of the Disney Stores in the terminals at the Orlando International Airport if that is how you are arriving in Florida.

    While that may not be the news you'd like to hear, there are times when certain designs are discounted when you arrive. Of course, this cannot be guaranteed and varies, but when I was at the resort in early April, items themed to Disney's Wish were discounted...and that included a Disney Band themed to this magical movie! It worked out so perfectly because I had had my eye on this very Disney Band for a while. It was simply meant to be!

    Once you find the Disney Band that speaks to you, just note that if it is the latest, interactive version of the band, for it to interact with the parks and nighttime spectaculars, it must be updated and charged. I always charge mine each night before going into the parks. But just know that as long as it has been connected to your account, it will still perform the functions of a standard Disney Band, even when it's not charged, such as letting you tap into the theme parks, redeem Lightning Lanes that you may have reserved, and unlock the door at your Disney Resorts Collection Hotel. It just won't light up and vibrate when you wave at one of the interactive statues around the resort, for example, unless it has been charged!

    Julie, keep those questions coming. I'm happy to answer them!
