    How do I use my annual pass for the first time if I don't have a magic band?

    Heigh-Ho Kevin,

    Congratulations on becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder, I too will be joining this prestigious crew in a couple of months and am ready to start enjoying more visits and all the perks that come along with it.  

    Brand new Walt Disney World Annual Passholders will need to visit a Guest Relations/Ticket counter to redeem their email/voucher, prior to entering the Walt Disney World Theme Park. Bring along a Photo ID for verification. At this time a Cast Member will assign you a hardcopy Annual Pass card which is used the same way as a Disney MagicBand. Another option is utilizing the Disney MagicMobile service in your My Disney Experience mobile app. Here Guests, with eligible iPhones, Apple Watch or Google Pay enabled Android phones, can create digital passes for their Walt Disney World tickets and Annual Passes.  Guests’ devices will be scanned near access points to gain entrance into the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. The Disney MagicMobile service, also, allows Guests to capture Disney PhotoPass moments, gain entrance into virtual queues such as Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance and if you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort allow for charging privileges. 

    I hope this helps and hope you are excited because Walt Disney World is about to turn 50!!! And as we celebrate this momentous time, Guests will create some very magical and memorable moments to last a lifetime. 

    Have a Practically Perfect Day,

    Amy M.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
