    We are from Canada, and will be doing Disney pre & post Disney cruise (offsite stay pre-cruise, AKL post-cruise). Could we get our magic bands early so that we can hit the parks pre-cruise? if so, how early could MB be sent to our offsite hotel?

    Hi, Lisa! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I’m not sure I completely understand what you’re asking, but as a fellow Canadian, I will try my best to answer! At this time, international Guests (including us), will have their MagicBands waiting for them upon check-in at their Disney Resort hotels. In your case, your MagicBand will be waiting for you after your Disney Cruise Line adventure at Disney’s Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you have MagicBands from a previous vacation that were taken within the last 2 years (due to battery life), you may be able to use these throughout the Disney Theme Parks. Unless you happen to be lucky enough to be an Annual Passholder, keep in mind that you will be requiring Disney Theme Park tickets in order to gain admittance to all of the fun and attractions! Your MagicBand will serve as your room key and you will be able to make charges to your room if you leave a valid credit card on file. If you do not have a MagicBand but have Disney Theme Park tickets, you can visit the ticket booth at the entrance of any Disney Theme Park to receive a card ticket to use for entry and to redeem any FastPass+ reservations you have made. Alternatively, you can purchase a MagicBand upon your arrival (there happen to be small merchandise locations outside of each Disney Theme Park), or you can order one online and have it shipped to your home. If you do purchase one ahead of time, make sure to link it to your My Disney Experience account and that it is listed as “active”.

    Did you know that there is currently a great offer for Canadian residents? I certainly plan on taking advantage of this 20% off tickets of 4 or more days!

    Bon voyage,
