    Hi there! We have a Walt Disney Resort reservation and would like to purchase discounted Magicbands, we are having difficulties finding the discount. Is this because we live in Canada?

    Hi Karl!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    I am happy to help you with this question, as there have been some changes in the way we can purchase our MagicBands as an International guest.

    Unfortunately, International guests visiting Walt Disney World cannot pre-order MagicBands via the My Disney Experience app. This offer only applies to guests from the USA. I fully understand that you want to have your MagicBands organised before the start of your vacation, or at least when you check in to your Disney Resort Hotel, so here are some options.

    I often purchase my MagicBands from to have them delivered to my Disney Resort Hotel before my arrival.   They usually have a good selection, and they update their stock often.  If you place an order, ensure you enter the delivery address as "Your Name" + "GUEST arriving" - insert your arrival date - then add the name and address of your Disney hotel, (which can be found on the Overview page of your hotel on the website).  On arrival, advise the Front Desk that you have a package waiting for you, and they will link your MagicBands to your account.  I like to place my order around 10 days before I arrive to ensure the package is delivered in 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 prefer to make your purchase on the day you arrive, all the gift shops at Disney hotels usually hold a limited amount of stock of MagicBands.  Have a look around the shop when you arrive, and if you find designs you like, the Front Desk will set them up for you.

    However, for an even larger selection, several places around the Resort sell MagicBands - at Disney Springs, D-Tech on Demand, and World of Disney, and in the theme parks the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park or Creations Shop at EPCOT are worth a visit. 

    Before you make your purchase you can request Key to the World admission cards from the front desk - free of charge - which you can use to access your hotel room, make charges to your room, and use for park admission. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical vacation, and keep your eye on the Disney Parks Blog for all the latest official news about events that may be happening during your stay.
