    Hi Joanne, just starting to plan on next WDW trip. With respect to the MagicBands, is it possible to receive them before we leave (as we are in Canada) or do we need to wait until we get to our resort. Really hoping we can customize them! Thank you.

    Hi Lynn! How exciting that you're busy planning your next Disney vacation!  If this is your first vacation using the Magic Bands, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! I have to say I loved everything about them! It was so convenient to go out in the mornings and not have to bring a room key and money for breakfast! And now we never lose our room keys, which is a huge plus.

    Unfortunately, we Canadians still have to pick up our bands when we check in to our resort. Don't despair though Lynn, because you can still pick out colours for each member of your party ahead of time on My Disney Experience, and your family's box with everyone's Magic Bands will be waiting for your arrival.

    I do recommend checking back here at the Moms Panel website and the Disney Parks Blog for the latest news, as they continue to make changes to the system, and you never know, some pixie dust might fly up to Canada!

    Write back with any other questions Lynn! Wishing you the most magical vacation!
