    We going for our magical holiday in November and I would like to asked can we preorder magic band plus to be able pick up on arrival in Disney hotel? If yes how we will be able to order them

    Hiya Stefan! Thanks for stopping by planDisney!

    Congratulations on booking your magical holiday this upcoming November. And better yet, just in time for the unofficial start to the holiday season for the Walt Disney World Resort. Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is returning after a two-year hiatus and I cannot be more excited for its return. It should be just underway when you are set to arrive. This is considered a special event, so you'll need to purchase them separately from your regular park tickets.

    Unfortunately, I do not come bearing the news you were hoping to hear, Stefan. Guests visiting from the United Kingdom are not able to preorder MagicBands or the newly debuted MagicBand+ at this time. If you have a MagicBand from a previous trip, check your My Disney Experience account to make sure they are still active.

    Although having them waiting for you at your resort is not an option, you will still have plenty of locations to pick up a new MagicBand from right at the beginning of your stay. When you arrive at the Orlando International Airport, there are many shops inside of the terminals that sell a variety of different MagicBands and MagicBand+. You can potentially have one on your wrist as you arrive at your Disney Resorts Hotel.

    Once you arrive onsite, before heading to check in, stop by the gift shop at the resort to see the assortment of MagicBands they have for sale. Each gift shop will have different options available for purchase. There are also plenty of merchandise locations all over the parks and resorts that will have the new MagicBand+ for sale!

    Once you make any purchases, you'll need to link your bands to your My Disney Experience account. Make sure you have the My Disney Experience App downloaded to your mobile device and log on to your account. Tap on the three horizontal bars on the bottom right of your screen and then select "Your MagicBands and More". Scroll down to "Link Your MagicBand or Card" and enter the ID Number located on the back of the band. Make sure to select the correct Guest to link each specific band to. 

    Stefan, I hope this information helps you during your upcoming visit. Stop back again to see me at planDisney!

    See ya real soon!
