    where can I purchase magic bands

    Hi Brooklin, 

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for asking us a question, my fellow Canadian!

    Disney Bands (or MagicBands) are really a great way to access the Magic during a visit to Walt Disney World Resort. I’ve accumulated quite the collection from my trips over the past few years! I love the different colours, characters and designs that are available now. The possibilities truly are endless when it comes to finding the perfect one for any visit. 

    Although shopDisney does have some for sale, Disney Bands unfortunately can’t be shipped to addresses outside of the United States. That doesn’t mean, however, that you’re out of luck as a visitor from Canada! The easiest way to get one for your upcoming visit, Disney Resorts Collection hotel (that is, “on property”), is to have them shipped directly to your Resort. You can make your selection by logging in to your My Disney Experience account and then customizing your bands by clicking on the link. If you’re having trouble finding it, you should see it beside the Online Check-In option, right under the “Your upcoming reservation” section near the top half of the page. In my experience, shopDisney preselects the Resort Delivery option for all international Guests, so the experience should be relatively straightforward for you. Then, all you’ll need to do is stop at your Resort’s Lobby Concierge to pick up your Disney Bands and then head off to your first Theme Park and your day of Disney fun.

    If you’re staying “off property”, I’d recommend that you contact your hotel or accommodation host to see whether it would be possible for you to ship your order to your hotel for them to hold until your arrival. If neither of those options work for you, and you don’t have friends or other people in the United States to whom you can ship your purchase, then you’ll have to wait until you visit Walt Disney World Resort in order to purchase Disney Bands directly from a Merchandise Location either in a Theme Park or at Disney Springs. 

    I hope my answer helps you choose the perfect Disney Bands for your trip. Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. We’re always happy to help!

    Have a Magical Day,
