    Analia from Buenos Aires Asked

    Hi all! I am from Argentina, going to Disney in November. I have a relative who is currently there and i was wondering if he could buy the Magic Bands for my trip and bring them for me. If so, can they be activated with such anticipation? Thanks!

    Hello Analia!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! It is a pleasure to answer your question, thank you so much for visiting us once again.

    MagicBands are amazing! They really make our visits to the Walt Disney World more convenient. You will be able to link theme park tickets, your Memory Maker entitlement, FastPass+ selections, and even dining reservations to your MagicBands. Guests of Disney Resort hotels also use them as their room key, and may also use them to pay for food and merchandise throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Your relative can most definitely purchase MagicBands for you. After receiving them, link each MagicBand to each person in your group and then link theme park tickets. Don't forget to make FastPass+ selections 30 days before your visit or 60 days in advance if you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel. Your MagicBands will be ready to go for your upcoming November visit. If you have any issues when you arrive, just talk to any Cast Member and they will be happy to assist you. 

    Analia, did you know that the Disney Parks Moms Panel is available in Spanish? Stop by next time so that our amazing Spanish specialists may continue to help you plan magical memories in your own language.

    I hope this helps you while planning and that your vacation is unforgettable!

    Best magical wishes,
