    How can we preorder Magicbands for delivery to hotel? We are from UK and understand we can't have them shipped - but we've been told we can preorder them and pick them up at check in. However when I go on mydisneyexperience it says I can't.

    Welcome to planDisney, Steven!

    MagicBand+ adds that extra sprinkle of magic to your Disney holiday. These handy-dandy devices allow you to unlock your Disney Resort hotel room door, enter both theme and water Parks (with valid admission, of course), connect any Disney PhotoPass images to your account, and charge delicious food and special souvenir purchases to your Disney Resort hotel room. MagicBand+ can also unlock special interactions within the Disney parks. For example, you can use your MagicBand+ to seek virtual bounties throughout Black Spire Outpost by playing Star Wars: Batuu Bounty Hunters! You can also experience haptic vibrations and colorful lights during nighttime spectaculars. What's not to love?

    Now, unfortunately, Steven, Guests traveling from the UK cannot currently order MagicBands pre-arrival. However, once you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort, you'll be able to purchase your MagicBands from a variety of places, including your Disney Resort, any of the theme parks, or Disney Springs. Here are some suggested locations to try out:

    Magic Kingdom Park: Emporium  
    EPCOT: Pin Traders – Camera Center
    Disney’s Hollywood Studios: Celebrity 5 & 10 and Tatooine Traders 
    Disney’s Animal Kingdom Theme Park: Discovery Trading Company  
    Disney Springs: Disney’s Pin Traders

    If you don't see one that you like, you can always ask a Cast Member to direct you to another store that sells them.

    Once you purchase your Magicband+, you'll have to link it to your account. To do that, once you've purchased your MagicBand+, open your My Disney Experience Mobile App, click on "MagicBands and More," choose the person you want to link the MagicBand+ to and you'll be given instructions on how to link your device.

    I hope that's helpful, Steven! Thanks for stopping by planDisney.
