    Hi! Partner and I are coming from Aus and can't pre-order MagicBands due to not being in US. Would we be able to order them between the 6-10 day window and have them waiting at our resort for when we check in? Or just purchase when we arrive?

    Hi Carmelo!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It is always a pleasure to answer questions from a fellow International guest, and I am happy to help you with this as there have been some changes to how we can purchase our Disney Bands.

    Unfortunately, International guests cannot pre-order Disney Bands via the My Disney Experience app. This offer only applies to guests from the USA. I fully understand that you want to have your Disney Bands organised before the start of your holiday, or at least when you check in to your Disney Resort Hotel, so let's talk through some options.

    To make your selection on the day you check-in, all the gift shops at Disney hotels usually hold a limited amount of stock of Disney Bands.  Have a look around the shop when you arrive, and if you find designs you like, the Front Desk will set them up for you straight away. 

    If you decide to wait until you can choose from an even larger selection, several places sell Disney Bands - Disney Springs (D-Tech on Demand, and World of Disney), and in the theme parks - the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park or Creations Shop at EPCOT both have a good selection. 

    Before you make your purchase (and it can take a while to decide which designs you want - there are many!!) you can request Key to the World admission cards from the front desk - free of charge - which you can use to access your hotel room, make charges to your room and use for park admission. 

    I usually purchase my Disney Bands from Disneystore.com, to have them delivered to my Disney Resort Hotel before my arrival.   They have a good selection, and they update their stock often.  If you place an order, ensure you enter the delivery address as "Your Name" + "GUEST arriving - insert your arrival date" - then add the name and address of your Disney hotel.  On arrival, advise the Front Desk that you have a package waiting for you, and they will link your Disney Bands to your account.  I like to place my order around 10 days before I arrive to ensure the package is waiting for me.  It should be noted that you will be charged a Resort fee of around US$6.00 (subject to change) for every package received for you by the Front Desk.  

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
