    We are travelling from Australia to Disneyworld, will our magic bands come to our house or do we pick them up at check in at AOA? Also can we get a car seat delivered to AOA from walmart online purchase?

    Hi Sarah, 

    I am so happy to answer another question from you regarding your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation!

    Sarah, currently MagicBands are only shipped to guests within the United States. Therefore, as you are traveling from Australia, you will be provided your MagicBands upon check in once you arrive at Disney's Art of Animation Resort. This is how my family receives our MagicBands as well since we live in Canada. In some ways I find it easier this way, as it means less to worry about packing into our suitcase before our trip!

    I am also pleased to confirm that you will indeed be able to ship an online car seat purchase from Walmart (or anywhere else) to Disney's Art of Animation Resort. You will want to ensure that your package is addressed to the lead guest on your reservation, and that the word "guest" with your check in date is also specified on the shipping label.

    The mailing address for your Resort is as follows:

    Disney’s Art of Animation Resort
    1850 Animation Way
    Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830-8400

    Please note that currently there is a $5 per package handling fee which may be charged for all packages delivered to your Resort hotel. 

    In the event you are wondering, car seats are not required on any complimentary Walt Disney World Resort transportation, including Disney's Magical Express. Also, if you are renting a car, most car rental companies will have car seats available for rent in case you may wish to avail yourself of that option instead of purchasing a car seat.

    Magically Yours,
