    Hi Alison!

    Welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by with your question!

    At this time, Guests residing in the UK are unable to purchase Disney bands before arriving onsite at Walt Disney World. Additionally, Guests cannot preorder them for pickup at their Disney Resorts Hotel. However, you can purchase Disney bands once you arrive at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort & Spa at any of the merchandise locations that are currently selling them. I would start in the gift shop of the resort to check out the collection they are offering there.

    In addition to your resort, you'll also find Disney bands being sold at various locations all around Walt Disney World. Many merchandise locations at each of the parks will have a variety of choices. World of Disney, located at Disney Springs, will have one of the largest selections around. If you're looking for a unique design, this will be the best place to check.

    Once you have purchased your bands, you'll need to link them to your My Disney Experience account in order to use them. The easiest way to do this is by downloading the My Disney Experience App to your mobile device. Once logged in, tap on the three horizontal bars located in the bottom right corner of the screen. Scroll down to "Disney bands and More" and tap on "Link Your Disney band or Card." You can scan the front of your band or enter the ID Number located on the back of the band to link. Once linked, you'll be able to use your band for numerous functions during your trip, including for park entry and unlocking your Disney Resorts room door.

    Alison, I hope you have a magical Walt Disney World holiday! Let the countdown begin!

    See ya real soon!
