    I wish to purchase magicbands before we vacation ---unable to do so on my disney experience

    Hello Patricia, 

    As the current UK Panelist here at planDisney, I'd like to wish you a very warm welcome!  It's always a happy day when I have the pixie-dusted opportunity of being able to offer some assistance to a fellow British Guest who like me, spends their jolly holidays at Walt Disney World Resort!

    Oh, I do love my ever-expanding collection of MagicBands.  I think MagicBands make for wonderful Disney souvenirs and I've a whole long, linked chain of them hanging up in my kitchen to remind me of my own happy family holidays.

    Although at present it isn't possible to purchase MagicBands via My Disney Experience from the UK, do I have some great news for you, Patricia.  As soon as you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort this coming August you'll be able to choose and purchase MagicBands from a wide and varied selection of designs to suit the Disney style of every member of your whole family. 

    MagicBands are also available to purchase from a plethora of shops on Disney property, including within merchandise shops conveniently located in most every Disney Resorts Collection hotel.  And, if you so wished it's also possible to purchase MagicBands in the Magic of Disney shop located in the main terminal at Orlando International Airport (MCO). 

    Patricia, it may be useful for you to know that it's also possible to reuse any still functioning MagicBands from previous trips.  I some favorite MagicBands from past holidays that I've successfully reused a couple of times now.

    One of the newest gizmos that many Guests are currently enjoying at Walt Disney World Resort is the Disney MagicMobile Service which works with the My Disney Experience Mobile App on compatible iPhones, Apple Watches or Google Pay enabled Android phones. 

    With a bibbidi bobbidi boo!  The Disney MagicMobile Service works just like magic when Guests create a digital pass to link and access their Disney entitlements.  This fantastic new service works similarly to MagicBands in that Guests can hold their smart device near to an access point and "ta-ting" Mickey magically does the rest!

    And lastly, these My Disney Experience - Frequently Asked Questions might provide a useful additional planning resource for your August summer holibobs to Walt Disney World Resort

    If you should have any further questions about visiting Walt Disney World Resort, then please do pop back to planDisney to ask me another question.  I'm always happy to help wherever I can.

    Have a great Disney day ~ Jane
