    We are DVC members planning a group vacation for late Nov. 2016. Would you recommend using "my Disney experience" to allow the group to organize their group activities? Will Disney send wrist bands to International guests? Thanks!

    Hi Mike!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Our Disney Vacation Club vacations often involve traveling with extended family and friends, and we have had as many as 21 in our group. I do recommend some good pre-planning and organization to make a trip successful for a large party. My Disney Experience should be a part of this organization, and I highly recommend you do use it for your trip. Be sure to download the App to use when you are in the parks. I recommend each adult have their own account, as I have found it easier to make FastPass+ selections this way. Once everyone has created their account it should be easy to connect as friends and family!

    For large groups, I recommend planning one meal together each day. Then plan at least some of your FastPass+ selections together. Depending on the ages and interests of your group, you can always separate the daredevils from those that prefer calmer attractions. It is all easy to do with My Disney Experience! Traveling through the theme parks with a large group can be difficult. Don’t be afraid to split up sometimes. If you have a meal and FastPass+ attractions planned together, splitting up allows you to each cover more of the park, while still spending some time together as a group.

    Currently Magic Bands are not shipped outside the United States. There are a few options for International Guests. First, they could have their Magic Bands shipped to you, and you could forward them, or bring them with you to Walt Disney World. Alternately, their Magic Bands will be waiting for them when they arrive at their Walt Disney World Resort hotel.

    It sounds like you have quite the trip to look forward to, Mike. I hope you’ll come back if you have any other questions as plan your unforgettable Disney vacation.

    Wishing you Membership Magic!
