    We are staying off site at a partner hotel. We live in Canada and cannot order magic bands ahead of time. Where is the best place to get magic bands when we arrive? Are they still useful even though we're not in a Disney resort?

    How ya doin' Jessica and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm so glad to know you'll be trading in the frozen north for some spirited sunshine this December. There's no magic like Disney magic and when it intertwines with the Christmas spirit, you surely can't go wrong. Be sure to keep an eye on Disney Parks Blog to see what the Walt Disney World Resort will be cooking up in addition to the gingerbread this season. But for now, let's get you accessorized with fresh MagicBands so you can show your Disney style! 

    Upon your arrival, drop your luggage off at your hotel and head to Disney Springs. You will find that MagicBands are sold in merchandise locations around this shopping and dining paradise. But if you want to get the new MagicBand+ option, you'll need to stop by Disney's Pin Traders in the Marketplace section. My goddaughter was actually able to choose her MagicBand+ birthday gift at this store. She then spent the rest of our vacation waving frantically at the Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues around the theme parks and enjoying the interactive components of the nighttime spectaculars like Harmonious. I think they were a wonderful addition to our vacation and I hope they will be to yours too.

    Jessica, I hope I've been able to help you today. If you have any other questions, please feel free to come back for another chat! 

    Happy planning!
