    Cos we are from UK, we cannot pre-purchase Magic Bands; We prefer this method to enter the parks. Can we obtain them from the desk upon check-in or do we have to buy from a shop and then get them activated. If none of these, what would be the procedure Tks

    Hello again, James David, and welcome back to planDisney.

    I don't mind admitting that I have rather a large collection of MagicBands from my own previous holidays to the enchantment of Walt Disney World Resort.  James David, I can totally agree that MagicBands really do make a visit to the most magical place on earth a lot more accessible for Guests, plus they are nice take-home or even highly collectible souvenirs too!

    I have some zip-a-dee-doo-dah news to share with you!  Upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort, you'll be more than welcome to stop by almost any merchandise location on Disney property to purchase MagicBands, or indeed the all-new MagicBand+.   

    Once purchased, Cast Members will always be happy to provide any guidance needed to link MagicBands, or MagicBand+ purchases to your My Disney Experience account.

    Plus, it might be handy to know that Guests arriving at Orlando International Airport may also pop into the Walt Disney World Store where Cast Members will be pleased to help with the purchase of MagicBands and MagicBand+, plus any associated linking to your My Disney Experience account.

    And lastly, it's always worth remembering that if you have any still active MagicBands from your previous holibobs to Walt Disney World Resort, they may indeed be reused during your upcoming Autumnal visit.

    James David, I hope I've been able to provide a little pixie-dusted guidance and insight for you today.  Please feel free to drop back to me here at planDisney if you should think of any further questions concerning your upcoming October holiday at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
