    Hi I am not staying in a disney hotel and live in the United Kingdom. I would like to purchase 2 magic bands before my arrival but the USA store will not allow me to. How can i over come this? Thank you

    It's great to see you here today at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Liam!

    What did we even do in a time before MagicBands? I love how easy and convenient it is to have access to my theme park tickets and FastPass+ selections, and if you're staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can use it to charge your purchases to your room account as well!

    Even if you're staying off-site, it's still a great idea to treat yourself to a MagicBand to help you save a little time and streamline your experience. At the moment, MagicBands cannot be shipped to the UK, but you'll have a few opportunities to pick one up on your trip before you get into the theme parks. There are MagicBands available to be purchased at World of Disney at Disney Springs, and also at some of the merchandise locations that are found right outside of the gates at certain theme parks, like The Outpost Shop at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Once you've purchased a MagicBand in your favorite color or featuring your favorite Disney Character, you can link it to your theme park tickets immediately using the My Disney Experience app and be on your way!

    I hope this answers your questions, Liam, and let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
