    We’re in uk & due to Arrive Port Orleans riverside mid July 2023, can some of our group order magic bands to collect at Hotel on arrival? With out using a VPN ?

    Royal greetings, Gaynor!

    Welcome back to planDisney. We're so glad you've returned with another Walt Disney World Resort vacation planning question! Your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is approaching quickly. Gaynor, I'm happy to help you access the magic during your upcoming holiday!

    Unfortunately, the Walt Disney World Resort website does not allow Guests to pre-order Disney bands ahead of their arrival. Not to worry, though, Gaynor! Your party may be able to order Disney bands through shopDisney for delivery to your home address or Disney Resort hotel. If you choose to have items delivered to Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside ahead of your visit, be sure to request that the word "GUEST," the primary Guest's name, and your arrival date are noted on the shipment. The shipping address for Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside is: 1251 Riverside Drive, Lake Buena Vista, FL, 32830-8514. Please note that a small handling fee may be applied to deliveries made to your Resort hotel's Front Desk.

    You could also wait until you arrive on-site to purchase Disney bands, Gaynor. Disney bands are available for purchase at most shops throughout the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks, Disney Resort hotels, and Disney Springs! Once purchased, be sure to link your party's Disney bands to their profiles using the My Disney Experience mobile app. I also recommend fully charging your bands before using them in the theme parks to access their pixie-dusted potential!

    Gaynor, you'll be staying at my family's favorite Disney Moderate Resort hotel: Disney's Port Orleans Resort - Riverside. During your visit, be sure to enjoy a tranquil stroll around the beautiful, lush grounds of this Resort hotel. Craving a sweet treat? Use the walking path adjacent to the Sassagoula River to access Disney's Port Orleans Resort - French Quarter and pick up some warm, fresh Mickey-shaped beignets from Scat Cat's Club - Café. (Try the Chicory Chocolate Ganache sauce mixed with the strawberry sauce - you'll thank me later!)

    I hope you've found this information helpful, Gaynor. I'm wishing your group a magical and memorable holiday at the Walt Disney World Resort! Please feel free to revisit us here at planDisney anytime with additional questions. We're here to help you enjoy every enchanting moment at The Most Magical Place on Earth!

    Magic awaits,
