    I am traveling from Canada and would like to buy a MagicBand. The online store doesn't ship to Canada, but they say I can just buy it at one of the resorts. Thing is, I'm not staying at a resort. I'm staying off-site. Can I still buy one?

    Well hello there Esme, I'd like to wish you a very warm Canadian welcome to planDisney!

    From one Ontarian to another, there's really nothing like dreaming of the sunny skies down here in Florida while the last few bits of snow linger on the ground. Today it was over 30 degrees and sweltering, and I hope you have nothing but the best weather ahead of your trip next month!

    It looks like you're pretty keen on snagging a MagicBand or MagicBand+ here in the United States (and what some may know internationally as a Disney Band), and may be concerned that the only way to purchase one is by staying at a Walt Disney World Disney Resort Hotel. Never fear, many fellow Canadians venturing south choose to stay at nearby accommodations that aren't on property and have been able to purchase these wearable bits of technology for themselves so they can enjoy the ease of having it handy to scan for Theme Park admission, when taking advantage of Disney PhotoPass service, discovering interactive elements and more!

    You'll be happy to hear that they're actually very ubiquitous and can be found at merchandise locations all over Walt Disney World Resort! If you'd like to make sure that you have one before entering any of the Theme Parks, I recommend heading to Disney Springs on the day that you arrive in Florida; your best bet to find a vast variety is at World of Disney or even Disney's Pin Traders! Be sure to link it using your My Disney Experience mobile app, and don't hesitate to ask a friendly Guest Relations Cast Member for help!

    I hope that this was helpful to you Esme - please come back to planDisney to let me know how it went and to ask me any other questions you may have for your upcoming Disney adventuring!

    Wishing you all the best to have your wrist well-dressed at Walt Disney World Resort!
