    We are coming from Australia and staying at a Disneyworld resort in January but going on a Disney cruise first. Is there any way to pick up our discounted magic band from the cruise instead of from the hotel? I’ve heard we could use it on the Disney Wish?

    G’day, Kelly! Thank you for returning to planDisney with your vacation questions. 

    What a lovely holiday you have planned! A Land and Sea vacation is the best of both worlds – high-seas fun mixed with theme park thrills. I’m happy to help you navigate the first part of your trip. 

    Disney Cruise Line’s newest technology DisneyBand+ is a waterproof wristband designed to add more magic to your cruise. You can use the band to board the ship, access your stateroom, and pay for onboard items. Plus, there are a few extra surprises built in. Unfortunately, the pre-arrival online offer is only available to US residents with a valid US address. I know this isn’t the news you were hoping for, but you can still purchase DisneyBand+ on board from select merchandise locations. Plus, your DisneyBand+ will work at Walt Disney World Resort! I hope you have fun selecting the perfect band to fit your personality. 

    Since you probably are not arriving to the United States by Magic Carpet, I recommend leaving the transportation to Captain Mickey. Convenient transfers can be arranged from the airport to Port Canaveral and Walt Disney World Resort. Call your trusted travel provider and have them add ground transportation to your reservation. 

    Kelly, before you set off for adventure, you may enjoy listening to episodes of the planDisney podcast. There’s a treasure trove of information about Disney Cruise Line and Walt Disney World Resort. I hope you find this a helpful resource and that it builds anticipation for your enchanting holiday. 

    SEAS the adventure!

Ahoy! Just like Moana, I feel the irresistible call of the sea. I think the best vacation is aboard a Disney Cruise Line ship – thankfully, my family agrees. Whether savoring gelato in Italy, snorkeling in Mexico, or basking in the sea breeze on deck, each destination fills us with memories to last a lifetime. I look forward to helping your family plan a Disney Cruise Line adventure brimming with cherished moments!
