    We will be traveling to Walt Disney World, staying at a DVC resort as being Disney Vacation Club members. We are not American Citizens and will fly in from Europe. How can we purchase Magic Band+ before arrival?

    Hiya Stephan!

    Welcome Home and welcome to planDisney!  Oh boy! How exciting you will be visiting Walt Disney World and staying in a Disney Vacation Club Resort.  Stephan, our family just loves having the home away from home benefits in a DVC Villa or Deluxe Studio while being immersed in unique thematic Resorts and the magic of Disney. It sure adds so much extra pixie dust to our vacations!

    Stephan, unfortunately, Disney bands cannot be shipped internationally.  For our international Guests, you can purchase one at one of the Merchandise locations - either at your Disney Vacation Club Resort or in the parks - when you arrive. As soon as you do, you can visit the Front Desk of your DVC Resort and have them connect your Disney band to your room account so it has charging privileges and you can add it as well to your My Disney Experience account. 

    To do that, you would simply follow these steps:
    1.  Visit your My Disney Experience app on your smart phone.
    2. Scroll under the tiles to "Link to Account."
    3. Either tap the front of your Disney band (following the instructions) or visit "Type ID" where you can enter the unique number on the underside of your band. 
    And with a Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo, your Disney band will be added for you!

    If you want to access your room before you purchase your Disney Band, your My Disney Experience app will allow you to open your door through the Disney Magic Mobile, once your room is ready.   While it is certainly convenient to receive the Disney bands in advance. However, when you purchase one on property, you have a much greater selection of the latest and greatest styles so you can really show off your Disney side!

    If you have any further questions, Stephan, stop back and see us!

    See ya real soon!
