    Hello. We are from the UK and staying at Animal Kingdom Lodge in October with a few nights beforehand off-site. Is it possible to pick up our Magic Bands from AKL the night before we check in so we can go straight to the park in the morning?

    Hello Paul,
    As the current British Mum here on the Disney Parks Moms Panel may I thank you for asking us such an important question.
    October and indeed the whole of Autumn at Walt Disney World Resort is such a wonderful time of the yEar for a jolly Florida holiday and by opting to stay for at least part of your trip within the beautiful African theming of Disney's Animal Kingdom Lodge - is practically perfect in every way!
    I'm pleased to share that although MagicBands are not currently shipped to international Guests like you and I, we do have the useful option of being able to arrange for MagicBands to be shipped to a non-Disney Resort hotel (with a valid US postal address) prior to our check-in date.
    Plus it may be useful to know that all Guests can perform an Online Check-in prior to arrival at Walt Disney World Resort which means on arrival day at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park you can simply head straight to the Online Check-in Desk located near the Lobby Concierge where your MagicBands and welcome folder will be awaiting collection after which you'll be able to discover the Power of Magic within the Disney Theme Parks at Walt Disney World Resort.
    Have a great Disney day.
    ~ Jane
