    I see we can no longer pre-order magic bands from then UK. Are we able to get them on arrival day? My children do not have mobile phones, I would like them to be able to access the room/park etc independently

    Oo-de-lally Sarah and welcome to planDisney!

    Every town has its ups and downs and it appears that while you can ship MagicBands and MagicBand+ all over the U.S., you cannot in Nottingham. But don't let that put a damper on your vacation. While you can use Disney MagicMobile Service for your family, I know of an even better way to get them in on the magic from the moment you step on the Walt Disney World Resort property.

    Even though you can't get them shipped, you can purchase MagicBands and MagicBand+ for your babies from the gift shops of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel or at select merchandise locations at Disney Springs before you ever have to enter a theme park. They'll be able to see the options up close and choose the one that best fits their brand of pixie dust. You'll then be able to link them in your My Disney Experience app by tapping the three-lined icon in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen. Then choose MagicBand and More. You can then touch the MagicBand or MagicBand+ to your mobile phone to link it to the account. My goddaughter loved being able to choose her MagicBand+ on her actual birthday to use for the rest of our trip. It really got her into the Disney spirit. 

    Pro-tip: If MagicBand+ is the option you choose to go with, be sure to let it charge up fully before the first use. You'll want them with all of the battery life possible to enjoy their interactive features with Harmonious, Disney Enchantment, and the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues

    Sarah, I'm wishing you the most wonderful trip you could ever have. If you have any more questions before you go, feel free to come back for another chat!

    Happy planning!
