    Hi I am planning a youth church group to Disney World next year and I was wondering if it would be possible to get magic bands for some of the group? I have a few people interested in using them.

    Hello, there Kishana!

    Welcome to planDisney! What a blessing you are for helping to bring your youth church group to Walt Disney World! I hope someone buys you a DOLE whip float for all your efforts.

    At this time, the only way our friends in the United Kingdom can purchase Disneybands (also known as MagicBands to us in the States) is to wait till you arrive and purchase them here at Walt Disney World Resort. For some reason, there is no way for Disneybands to be shipped from the Disney company to your home. Trust me when I say I was madly hunting through shopDisney for a solution too! I'm sorry that I don't have a better answer but I think once you see the great selection you find in your Disney Resort Hotel, Parks merchandise locations, or Disney Springs, you may struggle to purchase just one. My kids found great Disneybands in Disney Springs at Disney's Pin Traders on our last trip. They had an unexpectedly great selection!

    As soon as the kids find their perfect Disneyband make sure to charge it fully and then link it to their My Disney Experience account. If they are over the age of 13 they can make their account. If not they will have to be a guest under the account of the adult who is responsible for them. 

    I don't know if you knew this but during the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival and EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival, there are included concerts with some amazing musicians. Many times I have found some great Christian artists such as Casting Crowns, For King + Country, and TobyMac. I'm hoping to catch MercyMe this year and to ensure I get great seats I will be booking an Eat to the Beat Dining Package. If you time your trip right you may just catch someone your entire group will enjoy!

    I hope this helps and if you have any more questions please feel free to reach out!

    Happy Planning!
