    I just became a pass holder on January 6, 2018. When we picked up our cards and got them activated, they said at the gate we would receive magic bands in the mail. How long does this take? Were going back in a few weeks. Would be nice to have them by then.

    Hey Cherie!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Thank you for sending us your fantastic question about MagicBands for Walt Disney World Resort annual passes.

    Congratulations on recently becoming a Walt Disney World Resort annual passholder! As an annual passholder myself, I can assure you that you will greatly enjoy the magical benefits of being an annual passholder.

    The Cast Member you spoke to is correct, you will receive the MagicBand associated to your Walt Disney World Resort annual pass in the mail. However, you must first customize your MagicBand.

    If you have not yet done so, please click here in order to customize your MagicBand.

    Once you have customized and finalized your MagicBand order, you should receive your MagicBand in approximately 11 business days.

    If it is within 11 days of your next Walt Disney World Resort theme park visit, or your MagicBand did not arrive as scheduled, you can still enjoy the Walt Disney World Resort theme parks. The Walt Disney World Resort Passholder card you received during your recent visit—along with your photo ID—remains valid for theme park entry. It can also be used for FastPass+ service!

    Cherie, if you have any additional questions, please visit the Moms Panel again. We are all EARS!

    Wishing you a Magical Year,
