    Since my time at Disney will be limited,. I wanted to use a magic pass to get through the entrance quicker but it doesn’t ship to Canada. Are there any other options to get through the entrance quicker? I already know about the fast pass.

    Hi Terrie!

    We always try to pack as many pixie-dusted experiences into our Walt Disney World Resort vacations as possible, so I completely understand why you want to maximize your time in the parks!  

    Although you may not be able to order your MagicBand in advance, if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you will be able to pick it up at the Front Desk when you check in!  You can also purchase one at many locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort, including Disney Springs!  Once you have your MagicBand, you will be able to use it to enter the parks (with valid theme park admission), check in for your FastPass+ selections, and so much more!  That being said, you will still have to wait in the same entrance line as Guests without MagicBands, so it wouldn't help you get through the entrance quicker.  

    One amazing option to make sure you are one of the first Guests to enter the park is to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel so that you can take advantage of Extra Magic Hours!  Extra Magic Hours are available at a different theme park each day and will allow you to enter the park earlier (or leave later) than other Guests.  If you are unable to take advantage of Extra Magic Hours during your trip, I highly recommend arriving at least 30 minutes before the park opens so that you will be one of the first Guests to be able to enter the park after "rope drop" when the park officially opens!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
