    I would love to have a MagicBand to enjoy my disney vacation even more, it’s my dream! I have reservations for a Disney hotel and I’m trying to order a personalize one. But unfortunately the purchase is not available in My Disney Experience account.

    Hi Soramy!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    I understand how you feel about Disney Bands!  As a fellow International visitor myself (from the UK) I was a little disappointed that we cannot pre-order our Disney Bands.  However, there are ways to get organised as soon as we check in to our Disney Resort hotel.  

    All the gift shops at Disney hotels usually hold a limited amount of stock of Disney Bands, so you can make your selection there, and have the Front Desk set them up for you on your arrival day.

    If you would prefer to order your Disney Band in advance of your holiday you can purchase Disney Bands from ShopDisney.com, to have them delivered to your Disney Resort Hotel before you arrive.   This is something I often do, as they have a good selection, and I can pick them up when I check-in.  I encourage you to take a look at what they have on offer!  They have so many wonderful designs.  When you place your order, please ensure you enter the delivery address as "Your Name" + "GUEST arriving" - insert your arrival date - then add the name and address of your Disney hotel, which can be found on the Overview page of your hotel's website page.  On arrival, tell the Cast Member at the Front Desk that you should have a parcel waiting for you - then you can have your Disney Band linked to your account straight away.  I like to place my order around 10 days before I arrive to ensure the package is delivered by the time I get there.  It should be noted that you will be charged a Resort fee of around $6.00 (subject to change) for any package received for you by the Front Desk.

    If you decide to wait until you can choose from an even larger selection, several places around Walt Disney World will sell Disney Bands - Disney Springs (D-Tech on Demand, and World of Disney), and in the theme parks - Creations Shop at EPCOT (located right next to the largest indoor Starbucks at Walt Disney World - Connections Cafe - have a coffee while you make your decision on which design you want!) and the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park all have a good selection, for example.  Before you are ready to make your purchase you can request Key to the World admission cards from your front desk - free of charge - which you can use to access your hotel room, make charges to your room and use for park admission.  Alternatively, you can access Disney MagicMobile pass which is available on the My Disney Experience app.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can even send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
