    Hi! We bought annual passes but want to activate them when we arrive in sept. Can I go ahead and use the code on the back of the card to link? It's not working.... Don't all pass holders get magic bands? Or do we have to wait to get them? Thanks!

    Hi there, Dana!

    Congratulations on your purchase of Walt Disney World Annual Passes! There are so many benefits to being a Passholder; especially having an entire year of unlimited magic to look forward to!

    As an Annual Passholder, you will receive a complimentary MagicBand. Once you've activated your Annual Pass at Walt Disney World, you'll see a message in your My Disney Experience account inviting you to customize your MagicBands. You'll be able to go in and make your color selection as well as the name you'd like printed on your MagicBand. The code that's on the back of your card is actually the confirmation of your purchase, but the benefits of being an Annual Passholder don't actually kick in until you've activated it.

    I hope this makes sense, Dana. Please don't hesitate to write back in if we can help with any other questions you have.

    Wishing you a year's worth of Pixie Dusted adventures!
