    Originally we planned to stay at a Disney World resort and ordered magic bands. Well budget got the best of us and we had to go to a good neighbor hotel. We are staying at the Fairfield inn west entrance. What happens to my magic bands that i ordered?

    Hey, Danielle, and welcome to planDisney. There are a lot of ways to "do Disney" and we do not always stay on property. Our budget does not allow for every trip to be a Disney's Grand Floridian & Spa Resort level experience because we want to spend our money on other experiences instead of hotels.

    When you order MagicBands or MagicBand+ and pay for them you will still receive them even if you cancel your Disney Resorts Collection hotel. Since you are coming from Canada the MagicBands will not be shipped to you directly. You should have chosen a shipping location when you ordered. In general, they would be shipped to the original hotel, or anywhere in the US that you wanted them shipped. That is a choice when making the MagicBand purchase. So if you chose a Disney Resort hotel you will need to travel to that Resort hotel to get your MagicBands. According to the Cast Member I spoke with to verify this information, the address may not be changed but it never hurts to try by calling another Cast Member.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Your MagicBand purchase should automatically be linked to your My Disney Experience account. If not, that is the first thing to do once you get it. I also like creating a Disney MagicMobile pass. It is fun to use my phone to tap into attractions and theme parks.

    Danielle, please let me know directly if you have any follow-up questions. I am here to help.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
