    Thomas from Cheshire Asked Please note that experiences, policies, pricing and other offerings are subject to change and may have changed since the date of this answer.

    At present there is a $10 pre-arrival discount on magicband plus. As we are coming from the UK I can't pre order the magicbands. Is there a way i can get this offer when we arrive or can I use a VPN to order to the hotel.

    Hello Thomas, and welcome back to planDisney!

    I thought it might be useful to begin by explaining that at present, I'm delighted to be planDisney's very own UK-based Panelist!   Therefore, I can of course fully appreciate our shared British point of view when making plans to holiday in Orlando within the magic of Walt Disney World Resort.

    Thomas, I'm able to share that for the moment, Guests who have access to the UK-based Walt Disney Travel Company website are not currently offered the option to order pre-arrival MagicBands. 

    However, I'm more than pleased to tell you that upon arrival at Walt Disney World Resort, all Guests are welcome to choose to purchase MagicBands, or indeed the all-new MagicBand+ from almost any merchandise location found on Disney property. 

    I must say I always look forward to discovering a pixie-dusted plethora of MagicBands and MagicBand+ designs to choose from upon my own arrival at Walt Disney World Resort!  It's actually super fun to decide which MagicBand, or MagicBand+ suits your particular style, mood, or even occasion when you arrive in the Sunshine State of Florida.

    When thinking about the use of a Virtual Private Network (VPN); whilst I don't have any personal experiences to share, what I can say is that upon arrival within the United States of America, Guests are more than welcome to gain access to the US-based website.

    I know this isn't quite the news you were wishing to hear Thomas.  However, as I note you're in the midst of planning ahead for your jolly Disney holiday in May 2023, I thought you might like to take a peek at these FREE Holiday Planning Tools from the Walt Disney Travel Company.

    If you should have any follow-up questions at all, then please do drop back to me here at planDisney where I'll always be happy to help to the very best of my capabilities!

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
