    Hi, We are coming to Orlando in December for our daughters 21st. It's a surprise, so I was hoping to give her a magicband when we tell her where we are going!! How do I buy magic bands in the UK? We aren't staying in a Disney hotel. Many thanks

    Hey Howdy Hey Alyse, welcome back to planDisney! Thank you for stopping by with your excellent question. I'm thrilled to assist you! How exciting that your trip to Walt Disney World Resort is right around the corner!

    How exciting that you'll be celebrating your daughters 21st birthday at the Most Magical Place on Earth! Unfortunately, at this time, guests visiting from the UK are not able to order MagicBands for pre-arrival through the Walt Disney World Resort website. You will have the option to purchase MagicBands once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort. They're available for purchase at most retail locations within the theme parks, at the Disney Resort hotels, and at Disney Springs

    Once you receive your MagicBand, be sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account. To link a MagicBand, scroll to "My MagicBands and Cards" and scroll down to "Link a MagicBand," then select "Link." Next, follow the prompts to link your MagicBand and assign it to your Disney account.

    Alyse, I want you to know that you have several options to access the magic on your upcoming visit! I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app once you get stateside and setting up Disney MagicMobile service. This service functions allows Guests to enter the theme parks (with valid theme park admission and reservations), link Disney PhotoPass images to their Disney accounts, and charge purchases to their Disney Resort hotel. If you'd prefer to have a physical card linked to your account for use during your visit, simply visit a Guest Relations location for assistance.

    I hope you find this information helpful. Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
