    Hi! How can I get a Magic Band if I'm only staying onsite one day and not checking in until midday? I know you don't ship here but is there any other way to get one ahead of time so we don't waste time buying and programming them day of?

    Hiya, Valerie!

    Thanks for stopping by with your question about Disney bands. You're as welcome as can be here at planDisney! It sounds like you're planning to visit the Walt Disney World Resort soon. Oh boy! Valerie, I'm happy to walk you through your options for obtaining Disney bands ahead of your vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth.

    I can completely understand wanting to maximize the magic during your quick visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Valerie, you're correct that Disney bands cannot be shipped to international addresses. If you'd still like to take advantage of the pre-order discount currently available to Disney Resort hotel Guests, you're welcome to have your Disney bands shipped directly to your Disney Resort hotel's Front Desk. However, if you'd like to purchase Disney bands ahead of time, I recommend purchasing them on shopDisney and having them shipped directly to your home. That way, you can link your bands to your Disney account using the My Disney Experience mobile app, complete any software updates, pair them with your mobile devices, and fully charge your bands before their first use. This way, when you arrive onsite at The Most Magical Place on Earth, you won't waste a second on programming your Disney bands and can head directly to the theme parks!

    Valerie, did you know that your mobile phone can also be used similarly to a Disney band? Guests can use the My Disney Experience mobile app to unlock the door to their Disney Resort hotel room! Also available in the mobile app, Guests can utilize Disney MagicMobile service to add Disney MagicMobile passes to their digital wallets. These can be used for theme park entry, charging to a Disney Resort hotel folio, linking Disney PhotoPass images, and more!

    I hope you find this information useful as you continue to plan your memorable Walt Disney World Resort vacation, Valerie! I'm wishing you an unforgettable time at The Most Magical Place on Earth. If you have any additional planning questions, please stop back by planDisney again anytime - we're all ears!

    See ya real soon,
