    Hi! We are Disney Park First Timers travelling to Disney World in July and wondering how we get our Magic Bands if we are from Canada?

    Hi Wendy, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian! I’m absolutely thrilled to hear that you’re planning your first visit to Walt Disney World Resort; how exciting!

    It’s kind of a bummer that MagicBands can’t be shipped to international addresses, including Canadian ones. That being said, you’ll absolutely be able to get and use MagicBands during your upcoming Disney parks vacation. If you’re staying in a Disney Resort Hotel, your MagicBands will be waiting for you at the hotel’s front desk when you check in. Once you pick them up, you’ll be able to use them to unlock all of your Disney fun, including the door to your hotel room! 

    If you’re staying elsewhere, you’ll be able to purchase MagicBands at several merchandise locations throughout the Resort. If you don’t want to purchase a MagicBand, don’t worry! You’ll receive a card that you can use the same way as a MagicBand to enter Theme Parks and even use your FastPass+ selections.

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions, especially about Disney dining reservations and making your FastPass+ selections. You’ll probably have a lot of questions while planning your first visit, but we’re always available to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
