    Question 1: Magic bands - to confirm I can order these 6-10 days before arrival and they’ll be ready at hotel reception when we arrive?

    Hi Catherine. Thank you so much for reaching out to planDisney. You are asking some really great questions!

    DisneyBands are such a wonderful addition to your Walt Disney World Resort vacation. They come in all sorts of wonderful designs, you can use them to access the parks, and if you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection Hotel, you can use them to open your hotel room door and charge items back to your room. The latest version, DisneyBand+, kicks everything up a notch. These bands will vibrate and change colors with some of the attractions and nighttime spectaculars across the resort. I recently saw Fantasmic! at Disney's Hollywood Studios for the first time and I was so excited to see my DisneyBand+ lighting up along with parts of the show! Just be sure to charge your DisneyBand+ each night to ensure it has the longest battery life each day in the parks!

    At this time, international Guests are unable to order pre-arrival DisneyBands. However, there are plenty of merchandise locations around the resort where you can pick them up, quickly connect them to your account, and you're good to go!

    Catherine, when you arrive for your September trip, the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival will be in full swing. If you love to sample food and drinks from various cuisines, you'll absolutely adore this festival. And don't forget to check out who is performing at the Eat to the Beat Concert Series when you are there. You just never know who might turn up...that is until you've checked the schedule!

    If you have any other questions about your upcoming trip, please reach out again. We are always happy to help in any way that we can!

    Unbelievable sights and indescribable feelings are heading your way,
