    Hi. We are staying at AKL in September. I understand that resort guests no longer receive a free magic band, but can order magic bands for collection on arrival at a discounted cost. Please can you tell me how I do this?

    Hi Gez, Welcome to planDisney! Your trip to Walt Disney World Resort will  be here before you know it! MagicBands are one of my favorite accessories while at Disney as it offers such a convenience! They can be used to open your resort room door, PhotoPass and most importantly, enter the parks!

    Gez, unfortunately, MagicBands orders cannot be shipped internationally but I'm thrilled to let you know that you can absolutely order your MagicBand on ShopDisney.com prior to your arrival and have it shipped to Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you place an order, please ensure you enter the delivery address as Your Name and GUEST arriving - insert your arrival date - then add Animal Kingdom Lodge and the address. On arrival, let the Cast Member at the front desk know that you should have a package waiting for you. I would suggest placing your order around 10 days prior to arrival to ensure the package is delivered on time. It should be noted that you will be charged a Resort fee of around $6.00 (subject to change) for any package received for you by the Front Desk.

    If you would rather take your time and browse in person once you arrive, MagicBands can be purchased at many merchandise locations within all four theme parks, at Disney Resort hotel merchandise shops, and in many locations in Disney Springs, especially my favorite World of Disney! The bands can be easily linked to your itinerary through your My Disney Experience account after purchase. Once the bands are linked they are ready for immediate use.  

    I want you to know that you have several options to access the magic on your upcoming visit! I highly recommend downloading the My Disney Experience mobile app ahead of your vacation and setting up Disney MagicMobile Service. This service functions also allows Guests to enter the theme parks (with valid theme park admission and reservations), link Disney PhotoPass images to their Disney accounts, and charge purchases to their Disney Resort hotel. If you'd prefer to have a physical card linked to your account for use during your visit, simply visit a Guest Relations location for assistance.

    I hope this information helps you prepare for an exciting visit to Walt Disney World Resort, Gez! Thank you again for visiting planDisney. We'll see ya real soon!
