    Hello Jane D i was wondering if you can tell me please if UK guests can buy magic bands outside of the parks before we embark on our holidays and link them to the my Disney experience page of the holiday booking. 😁

    Hello Karen,  

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney to ask me a question Karen, it's always such a delight to offer a little pixie-dusted assistance to a fellow British Guest!

    What a super smart idea it is to purchase MagicBands prior to embarking on your holiday adventures at Walt Disney World Resort!  I have some zip-a-dee-doo-dah news to share with you in that yes, Guests absolutely can purchase MagicBands outside of the Disney Theme Parks! 

    MagicBands can be purchased at - 

     - Select merchandise stores at Disney Springs such as the World of Disney
     - Most merchandise locations at Disney Resorts Collection hotels
     - And at Disney Store locations at Orlando International Airport 

    After purchasing a MagicBand you'll find it's fairly straightforward to link it to your My Disney Experience account by - 
     - Signing into your My Disney Experience Mobile App
     - From the home screen, in the bottom right, click the 3 horizontal lines
     - Scroll & select Link to Account
     - Scroll & select Link MagicBand or Card
     - Follow the onscreen prompts to link via the MagicBands ID Code

    And with just a little faith, trust, and pixie dust you should with a bibbidi bobbidi boo be able to link any purchased MagicBands to your My Disney Experience account.  If you should encounter any technical difficulties, Cast Members are always more than happy to offer assistance where necessary.

    It may be useful to know that guests with eligible iPhones, Apple Watches, or Google Pay enabled Android phones can make use of Disney MagicMobile Service as an alternative, or in addition to MagicBands.  Disney MagicMobile Service allows Guests to create a digital pass to enable them to link and then access holiday entitlements, such as Ultimate Tickets.  It really does work just like magic!

    Karen, I really hope that I've been able to offer a little insight for you today!  If you should have any further enquiries about planning towards your holiday to the most magical place on earth, then please do pop back to planDisney to ask me another question.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
