    I’m arriving for an 8 night visit from Canada in a few weeks. We weren’t able to pre order MagicBands because of new rules in place for International guests.Is there anyway to get a discount on the bands when we arrive similar to what it is if you preorder

    Hello there Marnie, and welcome back to planDisney!

    It's so great to see you back here again planning another Walt Disney World Resort vacation to make your escape from the wintery weather up north! A lot has definitely changed since the first time that you came to planDisney with a question for our team, and we're happy to help navigate the nuances of the recent changes over the past few years for Canadian guests - especially now that we have so many more fellow Disney experts here from Ontario like Candace and Nilson

    I know so many fellow Canucks miss receiving magical Disney mail, and you may be among the many that are still getting used to the fact that for Canadians and everyone else internationally, those wearable bits of Disney technology on your wrist are officially known as Disney Bands outside of the United States as of last year! As you mentioned, this also coincided with these no longer being able to be ordered and shipped to international addresses with that handy discount nor the personalization options of the past. I asked the Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Cast Members about whether there have been any methods where Canadians or any other international guests have been able to benefit from that pre-order pricing, but they informed me that this isn't possible at the current time.

    However I recommend looking into what's available on, as not only are there often certain band designs that end up on sale at lower prices, but I've been successfully able to have my online purchases shipped to the Disney Resort Hotel that we were staying at! I also hope that you've been able to take advantage of the special Canadian Resident offers currently available, and we look forward to seeing you back again for any other tips or advice ahead of your warm weather getaway!

    Here's to kicking off 2024 with a trip to the sunny skies above the Most Magical Place on Earth!
