    I have a trip planned in August to WDW and I'm coming from the UK. I'm looking at ordering magic bands which I know can be sent to my hotel but I'd like to order them now. Is that possible or do I have to wait until nearer to the time?

    Hi Catherine!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It is always a pleasure to answer questions from a fellow UK guest, and I am happy to help you with this as there have been some changes to how we can purchase our Disney Bands as an International guest.

    I am assuming you are referring to pre-ordering your Disney Bands via the My Disney Experience app?  Unfortunately, International guests cannot take advantage of this offer, which now only applies to guests from the USA.

    Or maybe you were talking about purchasing Disney Bands from, to have them delivered to your Disney Resort Hotel before your arrival?  This is what I do! They usually have a good selection, and they update their stock often.  If you place an order, ensure you enter the delivery address as "Your Name + GUEST arriving" - insert your arrival date - then add the name and address of your Disney hotel, (which can be found on the Overview page of your hotel on the website).  On arrival, advise the Front Desk that you have a package waiting for you, and they will link your Disney Bands to your account.  I like to place my order around 10 days before I arrive to ensure the package is waiting for me. I wouldn't order them much earlier than that to save the Front Desk having to store lots of packages for several weeks before guests arrive.  It should be noted that you will be charged a Resort fee of around $6.00 (subject to change) for any package received for you by the Front Desk.

    If you want to make your selection in person on the day you arrive, all the gift shops at Disney hotels usually hold a limited amount of stock of Disney Bands.  Have a look around the shop when you arrive, and if you find designs you like, the Front Desk will set them up for you straight away. 

    If you decide to wait until you can choose from an even larger selection, several places around the Resort will sell Disney Bands - at Disney Springs (D-Tech on Demand, and World of Disney), and in the theme parks - the Emporium at Magic Kingdom Park or Creations Shop at EPCOT both have a good selection, for example. 

    Before you make your purchase you can request Key to the World admission cards from the front desk - free of charge - which you can use to access your hotel room, make charges to your room and use for park admission. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday!
