    I am from South Africa, planning a trip in Dec. I want to buy park tickets before our trip but shipping to SA is problematic. If I buy etickets, can I link the ID numbers on the etickets to the Experience app & get cards/bands at the 1st park we visit?

    Hi Karen, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thank you for asking us a question!

    I’m from Canada, so shipping Theme Park Tickets and MagicBands here is also problematic due to international shipping regulations. I’m happy to say that you can absolutely purchase your family’s Theme Park Tickets online and link them to your My Disney Experience account. That will allow you to make your party’s initial FastPass+ selections from the comfort of home!

    If you’re staying in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel (which I highly recommend, especially if it’s your first visit!), then everyone in your party will get complimentary MagicBands. Although they won’t get shipped to your home in South Africa, you will be able to pick them up at the front desk when you check in. If you aren’t staying “on property”, then you’ll be able to purchase MagicBands when you pick up your party’s Theme Park Ticket Cards at Will Call or Guest Relations at any Theme Park (or Disney Springs). 

    I hope my answer helps you plan a wonderful vacation! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions. 

    Have a Magical Day,
