    Hi! Can we get cards for Disneyworld instead of using our phone or Magic bands? If my daughter wants a Magic band, can she use that while we use cards? If we order her a Magic band, will they deliver to our resort.. we are from Canada. Arrive in 4 weeks.

    Hey there Tracy and welcome back to planDisney!

    I'm always happy to help fellow Canadians on their way over to Disney Destinations around the world; it looks like it's been a few years since your last question to us here at planDisney and there's definitely been quite a few new pieces of technology that changed the way that different folks and families can access the Theme Parks since then. 

    You'll be happy to hear that it's definitely possible to acquire a physical card that will act as your tangible ticket if you choose not to use a phone or device with Disney MagicMobile service through your My Disney Experience App. Just this year my husband and I were able to snag a few different cards for our families, which may be found over at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs and at the Guest Relations windows just outside of each Theme Park. Just be aware that the Cast Members we spoke with required us to show a combination of the following when we wanted to pick these up: a valid order confirmation email, the credit card that we used to make the purchase and government-issued photo identification.

    Did you know that MagicBands are known internationally as Disney Bands?  In fact, when our Canadian friends and family came for their Walt Disney World Resort visit this year they were able to order them ahead of their Resort Hotel stay and picked them up at the Front Desk upon their arrival. If your daughter wants to use one instead she absolutely can, I highly recommend just making sure you confirm with the Cast Members that it is activated with her ticket linked and ready to use before you head out to the Theme Parks to avoid any surprises at the turnstiles.

    I hope you have a fantastic stay down here next month, there's just so much happening with the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party in full swing! You're always welcome to come back again to planDisney for any more answers ahead of your next Disney adventure!

    Here's to having the key to unlocking the magic, however you want to use it!
