    We have a accom/dining/tickets package booked."My Disney Experience" makes it look like I should be able to order MagicBands to collect at checkin but every time I try, the website won't let me. Do I need to order them beforehand?Thanks

    Hi Gemma!
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Thank you for asking such a good question - I am sure many Guests may have had the same concern as you.  For International Guests, MagicBands will only be available to collect at check-in at your Disney Resort hotel, so this is what you need to do:   Sign in to your My Disney Experience account, ensuring that your reservation is linked to your account.  You can then either click on 'My Plans', then 'Choose Your MagicBands', or click on 'My MagicBands and Cards'. You will then be directed to enter the address that you would like your MagicBands to be shipped to. At this stage, enter your name and home address, and press 'Done'. Your MagicBands will not be shipped to the United Kingdom, but you still need to enter your address. The final screen will take you to your MagicBand Order where you can customise the colour and name, for everyone in your party. Your MagicBands will be waiting for you when you check-in at your Walt Disney World Resort hotel, and if you decide to use online check-in you will still be required to go to the Front Desk to collect them.

    MagicBands are so useful!  They will hold all your details about park tickets, FastPass+ selections, store your PhotoPass photographs taken around the parks and on the attractions, and they can unlock the door of your hotel room. They are invaluable if you visit the waterparks because not only are they completely waterproof, but you can also use them for charging purchases to your room so you do not need to carry any cash with you.

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions. We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday to Walt Disney World.
