    We just bought annual passes, which we will activate upon our first visit to a park, as I understand it. Can we get our complimentary magic bands before we get to Orlando, i.e., before we activate the passes?

    Hi Tara and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I also need to welcome you to the Passholder family! I've been an Annual Passholder for several years and I love the convenience of knowing my park entry is taken care of. I have also loved the special offers and discounts available through the Passholder Program. It's so tempting to schedule last minute trips when you combine a special offer plus a having park entry covered by your Annual Pass. 

    One of the benefits of being an Annual Passholder is receiving a MagicBand. I know it sounds a bit quirky, but you do have to activate your Annual Pass before you can customize your MagicBand and have it shipped. After you activate your Annual Pass, you will be able to customize your MagicBand and use it for the whole year.  

    Tara, thank you for visiting us with your question. Please let us know if you have any other questions about Annual Passes! 
    Wishing you many magical vacations,
    Amy H.
