    I am trying to figure out a way to get magic bands for my family as a surprise gift for Christmas. We live in Canada (Nova Scotia). Can't order them online from Disney. Have searched all local friends/family for someone going before Xmas. Help?

    Hi, Roberta! 

    Thank you for letting us help you with your Christmas surprise! Let's brainstorm so that we can find the best idea for you.  

    When I lived in Brazil and needed to buy something from a company that didn't offer international shipping, I used a packaging forwarding service. These companies can receive your packages and ship them as mail packages, so maybe that's a good option to get your Christmas surprise home! 

    The last time I used this service, they even offered an express shipping option. That may be faster than Santa's sleigh! 

    If you're not able to get the MagicBands home in time, you can gift your family a photo album so that you can talk about all the memories you'll create during your upcoming trip. That's what I did when I first booked my parents' trip to the Walt Disney World Resort. I only included one photo: a printed image of Disney's Polynesian Village Resort, our destination for that trip! They loved it!

    I hope that you can make this an unforgettable Christmas, Roberta! I know you're already giving your family the best surprise ever. Time together is the most magical of gifts, as it is also the scarcest and most precious present of all!  

    If you have more questions before your trip, please, let us know. We love to help! 

    May the magic be with you,
