    Good afternoon, We will be visiting in June but not staying on the site. I was wondering if we buy tickets on-line will the Magic Bands work? I was planning on buying passes and Magic Band on-line and deliver to our house before going. Thank you :)

    Bonjour Natacha,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for your question! 

    I’ll give you the good news first: You don’t need to be staying in a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel in order to purchase a MagicBand and link it to any Theme Park Ticket! Go to “Let’s Link Your Reservations and Purchases” within your My Disney Experience account. This page has several buttons that will allow you to link resort reservations, dining reservations, tickets and MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account.  Click “ticket” to link your Theme Park Tickets to your account and then go through the steps again, this time clicking on “MagicBand” to link your MagicBand to your account.  And, voilà! Your tickets and MagicBands should now be linked to each other.

    The bad news: as a fellow Quebecker, I’m sad to tell you that, while you can purchase your Theme Park Tickets online (and should purchase them before your vacation in order to make your FastPass+ selections before your arrival) MagicBands can’t be shipped internationally. But, don’t despair! You can still purchase a MagicBand and link it to your Theme Park Ticket. If you’re not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can still purchase a MagicBand at any one of the Walt Disney World Theme Parks or at Downtown Disney. You will then be able to link your MagicBand to your park ticket either at the Merchandise Location at which you purchased your MagicBand, or at Guest Relations.

    Please don’t hesitate to come back and visit us if you have any other questions and… bonnes vacances! 

    Have a Magical Day,
