MagicBands are no longer accessible for Passholders or Disney Resort hotel guests, but discounted options are available for purchase. However, these discounts are only accessible to American travelers. International guests cannot purchase discounted MagicBands as they won’t ship to them. They can buy them upon arrival, but without the discount.
