    Hi, I’ve ordered magic bands which are being sent to our hotel to collect, as we are from the UK. However, we’re staying offsite for the first part of our trip. Will we be able to collect our bands if we visit the hotel reception before our stay? Thanks

    Hi Lindsay, a warm welcome from us all here at planDisney. Disney bands (known as MagicBand or MagicBand+ in the United States) provide access to Disney Resort hotel rooms, theme park tickets, and more. It's worth remembering that a Disney Band is not required to enter the Parks, so please don't worry if you can't pick them up before your first day. 

    That said, I love the ease of Disney bands, so here's my recommendation. As you have already decided to pick up your Disney band from your Disney Resort hotel, I would contact them directly and let them know that you would like to collect them a few days before your check-in date, which is when they would typically become available for Guests. By giving them a call and some notice, they may be able to have all your Disney bands ready and waiting for you. 

    Lindsay, I'm so excited for you to experience all the latest thrills at Walt Disney World. Don't forget to nab a virtual queue for TRON Lightcycle / Run at 7 a.m. sharp on your Magic Kingdom Park day - it's particularly spectacular at night! If thrills are your thing, you might like to watch planDisney panelists Samantha, Raquel, and Matt speak with Amiyrah about the latest and greatest thrills at Walt Disney World - it's a fun watch to get excited about your adventure.

    I hope this information helps, Lindsay, and please know we're always happy to help with any questions here at planDisney! 

    Have a magical day!
