    Hi We are arriving from the UK. Can you please tell me how we can pre order magic bands. We can’t order through My Disney experience as we are not in USA and we tried to order them through the Shop Disney website but they are not available. Thanks Julian

    Julie, it's my absolute pleasure to welcome you to planDisney. You're nearly at that one-month countdown to your trip! Oh, how I wish I was too! 

    Disney bands (known as a MagicBand or MagicBand+ in the United States) are colourful wristbands that can provide access to Disney Resort hotel rooms, theme park tickets, and more. Please know a Disney band is not required to enter the Parks. Most features offered can be accessed through the My Disney Experience App. That said, we always have great fun choosing from the abundance of options. 

    I like to see before I buy, so selecting a band, widely available across various retail locations throughout Walt Disney World, is my preferred way to purchase. There is something for everyone, from a Star Wars aficionado to Disney Princesses. Once purchased, it takes just a moment to link it with the My Disney Experience App, and Cast Members can always help if needed. 

    As a fellow U.K. resident, I, too, found it trickier to purchase beforehand, hence why we always buy at Walt Disney World, but it is possible. If you add your Disney Resort hotel as the shipping address and Guest details, you should be able to pick up your Disney Band from the front desk. There is likely to be a fee for this delivery - another reason to purchase on arrival. 

    I hope this information helps, Julie!

    Before you head off on your adventure, I feel I must share just how fantastic Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind is. Try to nab a virtual queue for this truly mind-blowing experience - I made a new core memory on that first ride!  

    Have a magical time! Louise
