    Hi. We are going to Walt Disney world in August this year and I wanted to order magic bands to our resort hotel (beach club resort) I thought I could do this through the Disney store but the option to buy magic bands has gone. Can I order them in advance?

    Hi Abi!
    Welcome to planDisney.

    It is always a pleasure to answer questions from a fellow UK guest, and I am happy to help you with this as there have been some changes to how we can purchase our Disney Bands as an International guest.

    We used to be able to pre-order our Disney Bands via our MyDisney account on the My Disney Experience mobile app. Unfortunately, International guests cannot take advantage of this offer, which now only applies to guests from the USA.

    I usually purchase my Disney Bands from in advance of my trip, to have them delivered to my Disney Resort Hotel before I arrive, and you are very welcome to do this too. They usually have a good selection, and they update their stock often.  If you place an order, ensure you enter the delivery address as "Your Name + GUEST arriving...." - insert your arrival date - then add the name and address of your Disney hotel, (which is Disney's Beach Club Resort, 1800 Epcot Resorts Boulevard, Lake Buena Vista, Florida 32830 ).  On arrival, advise the Front Desk that you have a package waiting for you, and they will link your Disney Bands to your account.  I like to place my order around 10 days before I arrive to ensure the package is waiting for me. It should be noted that you will be charged a Resort fee of around $6.00 (subject to change) for any package received for you by the Front Desk.

    If you want to make your selection on the day you arrive, all the gift shops at Disney hotels usually hold a limited amount of stock of Disney Bands.  Have a look around the shop when you arrive, and if you find designs you like, the Front Desk will set them up for you straight away. 

    If you decide to wait until you can choose from an even larger selection, several places around the Resort will sell Disney Bands, and before you make your purchase you can request Key to the World admission cards from the front desk - free of charge - which you can use to access your hotel room, make charges to your room and use for park admission. 

    Please come back and visit us if you have any further questions - you can also send me a direct question if you wish.  We will be happy to help you plan your magical holiday!  I have also attached a new video to this answer - a brand new Resort Guide for Disney's Beach Club Resort - hosted by two of my friends at planDisney - Matt & Amy.  I hope you enjoy it!
