Virtual private network. simplification of one aspect of what it does : It makes it look as if you are using the internet in a different country when you are not. For instance, if I use a VPN and ask it to make it look as if Iím in the USA, itíll do so, like the person who bought the magic band mentioned earlier in the thread

this is the method I use:

1) get a VPN - I use PrivateInternetAccess (I used a quidco signup to get it for "free" effectively). There are many free ones out there, many paid ones. When you switch on the VPN you normally choose which country you wish to use as your endpoint.
2) open chrome, then open "new incognito window", this ensures that your regular cookies wont interfere
3) go log onto MDE
4) shop

When you are done, disconnect the VPN. Note! Not all VPNs will work, some are actively blocked by companies (netflix and disney+ sometimes block my PIA but there are lots of endpoints to choose from so I can usually use Netflix and Disney+ pretending to be in another country)

Dm'd disney customer relations on twitter, they said they are unaware of the block. Emailed them, awaiting a response. I basically said of anyone who has a holiday in the UK booked with you can't order magicbands then there is a block.

Thatís interesting. I didnít realise you could still purchase at a discount. With none of us able to go and UK guests unable to buy I had kind of forgot about it but Iíd like to pre-pay for one of the discounted ones. Might have a look at this later.

I used an app called Ultimate VPN which was recommended to me. It's easy to use and I had no trouble ordering the Magic Band once I'd connected to USA through it. The one I'm getting is lovely, has a picture of the castle on it. These are pics of it.
