    Jenni from FL Asked

    We are AP holders, we will be going for the 1st time 9/4. I really want to be able to use our magic bands but from what I've read, I can't get one until after I activate our tickets and it's mailed. Is this accurate? Little disappointed if so.

    Hi Jenni,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I am so excited to answer another one of your great questions! I am happy to learn that you have already purchased your Walt Disney World Resort annual passes and that your first visit is less than a month away. Hip hip hooray!

    Jenni, the information you have read is accurate. Your annual passholder MagicBands will not be available for customization or sent to you until after you have officially activated your Walt Disney World Resort annual passes. However, there are other options for you to be able to use a MagicBand during your upcoming vacation!

    If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you are automatically entitled to receive a complimentary MagicBand. If you are staying off-site and want to use a MagicBand to manage your theme park tickets and FastPass+ entitlements, you can purchase a MagicBand online and have it shipped to you in advance of your vacation. You can also have one shipped from the Shop Disney Parks app or purchase one in person when you arrive at Walt Disney World Resort.

    Once you purchase a MagicBand, it is quite simple to link your MagicBand to your Disney Account. Please visit the “Let’s Link your Reservations and Purchases” page in order to do so. You can also link your MagicBand to your account via the My Disney Experience mobile app.

    Jenni, I hope you will visit the Moms Panel again if you have any other questions.

    Wishing you Endless Magic,
