    Purchased trip with Costco for April. Costco advised that I purchase the wrist bands from Disney. I am not able to find how to do this on my account. Please advise how I can buy add ons for my trip?

    Michaela, your trip to the Most Magical Place on Earth is just around the river bend! Thanks for coming to us at planDisney with your question as you finalize your plans for your upcoming vacation! I'm more than excited to chat with you about the most magical accessory - the Disney Band (also called the MagicBand or MagicBand+)!

    Unfortunately, Disney Bands are not able to be shipped internationally, so guests visiting from outside of the United States are not eligible to purchase their bands ahead of their visit at this time. The good news is that once you arrive to the Walt Disney World Resort, you'll have the opportunity to purchase your band at a variety of retail stores throughout the resorts, theme parks, or Disney Springs area! And to be honest, the selection of bands on Disney property is usually far superior to the selection available for preorder, giving you a better chance of finding the perfect Disney Band to match your favorite character, attraction, color, or theme park!

    Michaela, I've become such a fan of using these bands when we visit the parks; in addition to easily tapping into the parks and unlocking our Disney Resort hotel room door, these bands connect you to the magic by lighting up and vibrating during nighttime shows and offering you opportunities for being a successful bounty hunter in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge in Disney's Hollywood Studios! We love the feeling of those vibrations to remind us of the magic that is all around us in the parks!

    Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel may also use their band to charge purchases back to their resort room, which makes shopping and dining even more simplified! And if you opt to purchase Disney Genie+ Service, purchase Individual Lightning Lane entries, or join a Virtual Queue for select attractions, your band will also be your touchpoint for entering these attractions! 

    I hope this helps you on your quest to find the perfect band once you arrive for your vacation; if you have any other questions as you count down the days until your arrival, feel free to come back to planDisney and ask us again! We're always happy to help you connect to the magic!

    See you real soon,
