    Hello, We are from South Australia and have a Disney Cruise booked around Western Europe departing Barcelona on 22nd July 2018. We also have a trip to Orlando in April 2019 and was wondering if you knew if we could purchase MagicBands on the cruise ship?

    Hi Keith!

    Ahoy and welcome!  I am so excited for you and your upcoming European Disney Cruise Line vacation!  It will be here so soon; I know you must be eagerly preparing for the adventure that awaits you!  My family recently sailed on an itinerary that visited Lisbon and I highly recommend making a stop at the Pasteis de Belem bakery while there for the most delicious egg custard tarts!  Eat one there and bring some back with you because you will definitely regret not doing so (as I did!!); I still dream about the next time I will get there for those delicious treats!

    Onboard the Disney Magic you will not need MagicBands; instead, you will use a Key to the World card that will act as your key to your stateroom, be used for onboard purchases and will also be required when you get off and on the ship at port!  Since you will use them so frequently, I recommend bringing a lanyard with you to keep it easily accessible!  If you do not have one to bring with you, you can purchase them onboard in Mickey’s Mainsail and will serve as a fun souvenir to take home with you!

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel for your vacation in Orlando, you will receive complimentary solid colored MagicBands when you arrive!  You can reserve dining and FastPass+ selections ahead of your vacation online through the My Disney Experience and you'll be ready to go when you arrive in Orlando.  MagicBands are also available for purchase online, but currently international shipping is not available or can be purchased at a variety of shops in the theme parks.

    I am so excited for your upcoming MAGICal adventures!  Be sure to come back with any additional planning questions you have!

    Happy Traveling!
