    Hi, we will be travelling to Disney World from Canada in a few weeks. This is our first trip. Being from Canada, I believe our magic bands will not arrive in the mail, we will have to pick them up. How will we access the magical express without them?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Amanda!

    It is always a pleasure to answer a question from a fellow international visitor, especially when they are planning their first visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    It makes me very happy to hear that you will be staying at a Disney Resort hotel. You will have access to great benefits, including complimentary motorcoach transportation to and from Orlando International Airport with Disney’s Magical Express, and the good news is that you do not need your MagicBands to enjoy this service. You will need to present Cast Members your Disney Resort hotel confirmation number at Disney’s Magical Express, located in the Ground Transportation Area in Terminal B, Level 1. I usually show the confirmation number on the My Disney Experience mobile app and sometimes I even bring a printed copy of the reservation. I recommend making reservations prior to your arrival by calling (407) 939-1936 or contacting your travel agent in Canada.

    Your MagicBands will be waiting at your Disney Resort hotel Front Desk. Did you know that you are welcome to customize them? Log in to your Disney account and select “My MagicBands and Cards”. You will be able to view your MagicBand order and choose a complimentary one or purchase a special pre-order premium MagicBand.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Amanda! Please stop by real soon if you have more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
