    I am an annual pass holder and am going to buy a WDW 3 day Fl resident pass for my nephew. I would like to buy a customized wristband for him when I am at the park. Will the 3 day pass be able to be loaded onto the band? we are not staying in a hotel.

    Hi Susan!

    It's so wonderful to hear from a fellow Floridian! A few weeks ago I was in the same situation. I am an Annual Passholder and my nephew needed a 4 day pass. He also wanted a character MagicBand. When we bought the MagicBand, the Cast Member who rung up our purchased asked if I wanted to activate the MagicBand. Using the ticket card we got at the entrance, he was able to activate my nephew's MagicBand.

    Quick Tip: When you purchase the pass for your nephew, ask the Cast Member to link the pass to the My Disney Experience Account which manages your nephew's profile. That way you can make FastPass+ selections at one of the FastPass+ kiosks located throughout the parks or on the My Disney Experience App. Also, once you purchase and activate his MagicBand, his FastPass+ selections will be linked to the new MagicBand.

    It has been a real pleasure assisting you Susan! If there are any other questions you may have please feel free to send them my way!

    Happy Planning!
