    I have an upcoming WDW resort stay booked but can’t pre order magic bands for delivery to resort as I’m in the UK. How do I go about utilising the discount for magic bands for resort guests?

    Hello there Emma, and welcome to planDisney!

    As one of our International specialists here at planDisney who hears from guests around the world, rest assured that you're not alone among the many folks and families from outside of the United States who are no longer eligible for this pre-arrival perk. Did you also know that officially, these are called Disney Bands everywhere else internationally - though you'll find that you'll find Cast Members commonly referring to them as MagicBands when you arrive in Florida to all guests.

    I recently asked a Guest Relations Cast Member here at Walt Disney World Resort about this and sadly, they let me know that as Disney Bands can neither be shipped internationally nor pre-ordered by international guests at the current time, they are unfortunately not eligible for the discounted pricing. They also informed me that guests who inquire with the front desk Cast Members of their Disney Resort Hotel are directed to nearby merchandise locations where they can purchase these on their own.

    It would be fantastic if one day some of these perks might return for everyone else across the globe making the voyage to stay at a Disney Resort Hotel (and policies are always subject to change without prior notice such as this one), but at the current time you'll just have to wait until you get here to snag a new one. On the bright side, you might see this as an opportunity to have the experience of picking out a fresh, shiny new one to wear as new designs get released every so often throughout the year!

    Here's hoping you're able to seek out the bands you're looking for on your upcoming Disney adventures this summer!
