    I am in Canada do I have to wait to purchase wrist bands at Disney we are not staying at a resort we have a 4 day pass there is 11 of us. do you have a check list for things to take on our trip thanks Barb

    Hi Barbara, 

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, my fellow Canadian, and thank you for asking us a question!

    Because MagicBands unfortunately can’t be shipped to international addresses, you’re right that you’ll need to wait until your arrival at Walt Disney World Resort in order to purchase some for your party. Once you do, however, the Cast Member will be able to assist you with linking them to each Guest’s My Disney Experience account, so that you can use them throughout your stay. 

    Here’s an important tip for you: don’t forget to take advantage of the Special Offer for Canadian on the advance purchase of 4-Day or longer Theme Park Tickets, before February 10, 2018! Don't forget to make your FastPass+ selections as of 30 days prior to your arrival, too!

    As for packing tips, the list is as long as you want it to be! My family and I usually only take carry-on luggage with us during our trips, so we stock up on essentials like sunscreen once we’re in Florida as prices are sometimes cheaper than they are in Canada. Some things that I’ve found useful during our trips are, in no particular order: a small backpack or messenger bag for carrying around essentials during the day, a hat with a wide brim, comfortable walking shoes, a refillable water bottle, baby wipes (for all kinds of spills), hand sanitizer, lip balm and some bandaids in case anyone gets blisters from all of the walking that you’ll be doing. 

    I hope my answer helps you plan your upcoming vacation! Please don’t hesitate to come back and see us if you have any other questions.

    Have a Magical Day,
