    What is going on with pre-ordering Magic Bands to be delivered to the resort front desk for Canadian visitors? The option is not available. Part of the perk staying onsite is a discount on preordered Magic Bands, why is this not available to Canadians?

    Hi Susan! Thanks for reaching out again to us here at planDisney.

    I know that it might be disappointing, but at this time, International Guests are unable to pre-order DisneyBands through their My Disney Experience account. This includes Canada. Even though you're not able to pre-order them, there are plenty of merchandise locations around the resort where you can choose from an even greater selection of DisneyBands than you'll usually find online. You can also find a selection at the Disney Stores in each terminal of the Orlando International Airport if that's where you're arriving. This way, you can have them all set up before you reach the resort!

    If you decide to purchase the latest version, the DisneyBand+, it will be able to interact with some of the attractions, shows, and nighttime spectaculars. Plus, you can also wave to the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues across the resort and unlock some extra magic! Of course, it'll continue to do the same things as the previous versions, such as unlocking your Disney Resort Collection Hotel room door and charging items back to your room. Just keep in mind that these versions of the bands need to be charged before you use them and it is recommended that you charge them each night after you're done visiting the theme parks for the day!

    I see that you're visiting the Most Magical Place on Earth during the Most Wonderful Time of Year! Make sure you don't miss the EPCOT International Festival of the Holidays with its spectacular and moving Candlelight Processional. They just announced the narrators for this special event and it's a great lineup! Plus, there's the classic Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party taking place on select nights at Magic Kingdom Park and the brand-new after-hours event Disney Jollywood Nights at Disney's Hollywood Studios. There's certainly no shortage of holiday spirit at the Walt Disney World Resort this year!

    Susan, I hope you have a wonderful visit to the resort. Be sure to reach out again if you have any other questions.

    Make the season bright,
