    Please confirm that since I'm travelling from Australia I DON'T have the option of pre purchasing Magic Bands. I can only purchase them once I arrive at my resort.

    Hi there, Emmanuel. Welcome to planDisney. Thanks for stopping by to chit-chat about your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. 

    Emmanuel, are you getting so excited about your vacation to the most magical place on earth? I can't think of a better way to kick off a new year. That is going to be so much fun. 

    You are correct, Emmanuel. At this time, Guests from Australia are not able to pre-purchase MagicBands for their vacation. However, once you get here you are going to have so many options available to you. MagicBands are available for purchase at almost every merchandise location throughout the Walt Disney World Resort. You'll see them at your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel gift shop, at kiosks around the parks, inside stores and all over at Disney Springs. There are so many colors, patterns and characters to choose from. It will be fun picking out your perfect MagicBand for your trip. 

    If you'd like to shop around for your new MagicBand a bit, I suggest asking for a complimentary key to the world card. This looks like a standard hotel key card that the Cast Member checking you in at the front desk can give you. The designs are really cute, it's Mickey and all of his friends. These cards can take the place of a MagicBand while you shop for one. The card can open your room door, store your ticket for access to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks, collect your PhotoPass pictures and more. 

    I hope this helps. If you have other questions, please feel free to stop back by and ask me

    Happy holidays!

Meet the Panelist: Jackie, North Carolina

I love all things Walt Disney World.  In fact, since becoming Annual Passholders, my family of 3 is always hopping in the car for a quick trip to visit with Mickey Mouse!  I've been known to make the 8 hour each way drive to Walt Disney World (in one day!) to indulge in a Mickey Waffle or enjoy a sunny day at Disney's Typhoon Lagoon Water Park.  I may have a small family, but we are always up for some BIG fun at the Walt Disney World Resort.   Learn More About Jackie
