    I am travelling to Disney for 3weeks (not staying in resort) from Scotland. I have the 21day ultimate pass. Some of our party would like to buy the magic band instead of using the card. Can I purchase before or if it's at Disney where can I do this.

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Susan!

    Wow, three weeks at Walt Disney World Resort sounds like a dream come true. Your family is really going to get the chance to see and do so many magical things! Since you're traveling with so many people, I think it's a great idea to link your theme park admission to MagicBands to make it quick and easy to enter the parks and also use your FastPass+ selections. That way, you don't have to pull out your admission card every time you want to do any of these things, and best of all, you don't have to remember where you put it when you go looking for it later!

    Since MagicBands do not ship internationally, the best way to get some would be to pick them up when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort. You will see MagicBands at most merchandise locations, but there are a few places that you can get them before you even get into the theme parks! I love to start my vacation with some time at Disney Springs to enjoy the dining, shopping, and entertainment, so if you're like me and you usually find yourself there on your first day, check out World of Disney for a great selection of MagicBands. You can also find them at some of the shops that are right outside of the theme parks, like The Outpost Shop which is just in front of the main entrance to Disney's Animal Kingdom, or Mickey's Gift Station at the Transportation and Ticket Center, which is where you catch the monorail or ferry boat to come into Magic Kingdom Park for the day.

    I hope this answers your question, Susan, and please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help you plan your magical vacation.
