    My Parents are not in my direct party, but they are in our planning party. I was wondering if I could purchase Magic Bands for them and have them shipped to them with their ticket stuff on them. Thanks.

    Hey there, Cody! Welcome to planDisney! I'm so glad that you've stopped by with your vacation planning question.

    I have a serious MagicBand collection. I can't resist purchasing new ones for every Walt Disney World Resort vacation or when I see the practically perfect one (anything involving Mary Poppins) while shopping in the theme parks or Resorts. I love coordinating my MagicBand with my theme park and outfit of the day, and it's just so easy and convenient to tap my MagicBand as my room key, for park admission, Lightning Lane entrances and purchases, even when my hands are full! It is so sweet and thoughtful that you are wanting to purchase these pixie-dusted, functional fashion pieces for your parents, so, let's chat about your options.

    First, log in to your account on the My Disney Experience website and see if your parents are listed as Guests near the "Get Started" button under "My MagicBands and Cards." Unfortunately, if your parents aren't listed under "People I Have Plans With" on My Disney Experience and you don't share a Resort reservation with them, they will not be listed on your MagicBands and Cards page to purchase a MagicBand. But Hakuna Matata! It means "no worries!" You can surprise your parents with their perfect MagicBands by purchasing them on shopDisney and having them shipped to their home. Once they arrive, you or your parents can just follow the simple instructions to link the MagicBands to their Resort reservation and/or tickets. Magic unlocked!

    I hope this was helpful, Cody, and I hope that you can pull off this magical MagicBand surprise! Please stop by any time with any vacation planning questions you may have. You've got a friend in me!

    I hope to see ya real soon,
