    Hi there, We’re due to travel to WDW in mid November from the UK. We’re staying on Disney property. I’ve attempted to add pre departure magic band+ to my account but it says they’re not available due to my region. Will these be available to UK guests?

    Hiya Jason! Greeting from this side of the Atlantic! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question!

    I'm so excited you have decided to stay at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel during your visit this November! There is nothing better than arriving onsite under the Disney archways and not having to leave until your departure day. There is something special about being a part of the magic for your entire visit!

    With Walt Disney World introducing MagicBand+ recently, many Guests are excited to use them for their next visit. These new bands allow you to have a more interactive experience while touring around the parks. Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge has many touch points where your band will light up and vibrate when activated. You can also go on a scavenger hunt looking for the golden statues for the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection around the parks that help commemorate the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Make sure to tap your band at each for a welcoming surprise.

    At this time, Guests visiting from Great Britain are not able to preorder any type of MagicBands prior to your arrival. Unfortunately, this is one feature that has not returned since the reopening of the parks. You do still have plenty of options upon arrival to secure your MagicBand+ in time for the start of your trip. When you arrive at the Orlando International Airport, there are a few shops in the airport that sell items from the parks. You can potentially purchase them here and link them to your My Disney Experience account before even arriving at your resort. 

    If you don't find anything there, once you get to your resort, you can stop at the gift shop to check on their selection. They should have a better variety than what you might have found at the airport. If you are still not finding the perfect designs, I would take a quick trip over to World of Disney at Disney Springs. You'll find just about every type of MagicBand+ option here. 

    Jason, I hope this information helps you plan for your upcoming holiday! Have a magical time!

    See ya real soon!
