    I would like to buy an annual pass and magic bands as well since we don’t have any. Can I do all of that online ? Or can I get in the park without purchasing a magic band.

    Hey howdy hey, Janette!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks a bunch for stopping by with your Walt Disney World Resort planning question. Yee-haw - I'm so excited that you're considering becoming an Annual Passholder and purchasing MagicBands! A Walt Disney World Resort Annual Pass will allow you to visit The Most Magical Place on Earth more frequently and provide you with exclusive benefits and discounts, while a MagicBand+ will enable you to unlock the magic during your visits. I'm happy to help you out with both of these purchases, Janette!

    Guests may purchase Annual Passes on the Walt Disney World Resort website by navigating to the Parks & Tickets tab and selecting "Annual Passes." It looks like you're a Florida Resident, so be sure to log into your Disney account to view any pass types available to Florida Residents! I'm happy to inform you that Florida Residents may purchase their passes and perform digital residency verification completely online. Then, once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort, you'll be able to quickly pick up your physical Annual Passholder card from any ticket window or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs and head straight to the theme parks!

    Speaking of galloping over to the theme parks, MagicBand+ will make park entry a breeze! Once both your MagicBand+ and Annual Pass are linked to your Disney account, you'll be able to easily enter the parks with the tap of a wrist. You and your cowpokes will be amazed by the fun interactions your bands will have in the theme parks! Janette, you can find MagicBands pretty much anywhere - from shopDisney to most shops on Walt Disney World Resort property. Also, new and renewing Annual Passholders are offered the opportunity to purchase MagicBands at special pre-arrival prices on the Walt Disney World Resort website. Once you've completed your Annual Pass purchase, just navigate to the My Disney Experience tab and select "My MagicBands & Cards" to view available options and place your pre-arrival order! Keep in mind that, while various versions of MagicBand allow Guests to enter the theme parks and unlock Disney Resort hotel room doors, only MagicBand+ offers exciting theme park interactions.

    While MagicBands offer Guests the ultimate in convenience, they're not critical for theme park entry. Guests may use physical cards (provided at the ticket booths) or Disney MagicMobile service (available through the My Disney Experience mobile app) to tap in at the turnstiles as well!

    Janette, I hope you've found this information helpful. I'm wishing you the rootin'est tootin'est time in the parks as an Annual Passholder! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to mosey back on by planDisney again anytime. We're here to help with any questions you may have - to infinity and beyond!

    So long partner,
