    Hello! I am from Germany and booked the UK-package for the Coronado-Springs-Hotel and including a 14 days-ticket for April. How can I purchase a magic band and have it delivered to my hotel in advance? I already tried to find it in the MDE-app.

    Hallo, Martina!

    Welcome to planDisney. Thank you for taking the time to share your very first question with us. You have come to the right place for tips and advice as you plan your upcoming Disney adventure!

    Unfortunately, most international Guests are currently unable to order MagicBands pre-arrival. The good news is that you can purchase them in person when you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. Depending on what time your flight arrives from Germany, you can stop by the Magic of Disney stores located at Orlando International Airport and secure a MagicBand shortly after landing. MagicBands are also available at several merchandise locations at all four theme parks and Disney Springs, including the shop located at your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. My favorite place to shop for MagicBands is World of Disney store at Disney Springs, but I also love stopping by the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park and Creations Shop at EPCOT.

    Once you have purchased your MagicBand, link it to My Disney Experience to enjoy its functionalities. You can easily do so via the My Disney Experience app. Open the app on your mobile device, tap the three horizontal lines at the bottom of the screen, and select My Profile. Next, tap MagicBands and Cards and select Link a MagicBand or Card to enter the ID code. Your MagicBand can be used to enter the theme parks with valid admission linked to your Disney account, redeem Disney Genie+ experiences, charge food and merchandise purchases to your room account during your stay, and even open the door of your Guest room.

    If you decide not to use a MagicBand, you can use the My Disney Experience app to create a Disney MagicMobile pass. The pass can be linked to your digital wallet and used with your mobile devices instead of a MagicBand to enter the theme parks and water parks and link Disney PhotoPass content to your Disney account. You can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to unlock the door of your Guest room. You are also welcome to stop by Front Desk at your resort hotel and request a Key to the World card.

    I hope this information is helpful, Martina. Come back to visit us if you have additional questions, and have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Best Disney wishes,
