    We're staying off site and are planning on buying Magic Bands. We're Canadian so I know they won't ship to us. Can I link the bands before I pick them up at guest relations? Or do I have to wait until I physically have them?

    Hi Sarah, 

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

    It’s unfortunately true that, as Canadians, we can’t have MagicBands shipped to us. In order to link them to your My Disney Experience account, you’ll need the number on the back of the MagicBand in order to do so, which means you’ll need to pick them up first. 

    If you plan to purchase MagicBands when you arrive in Walt Disney World Resort, your best bet for making sure that everything is properly linked to your My Disney Experience account would be to purchase them at Guest Relations or any ticket window and then have the Cast Member “automagically” link them to your account. It doesn’t take more than a few minutes and then, you’ll be on your way.

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

    Have a Magical Day,
