    My Disney passes are up for renewal. Instead of getting the standard magic bands, can I upgrade these (either before ordering or at the park) to the character ones?

    Hi Jessie!

    I'm so happy to hear that you are planning on renewing your Annual Pass to Walt Disney World Resort! I love being an Annual Passholder because it unlocks a full year of magic. Hopefully you are already taking advantage of all of the benefits of being a Passholder, including dining and merchandise discounts. Don't forget to pick up your Passholder magnet featuring Figment to celebrate the Epcot International Festival of the Arts, if you haven't already gotten it!

    MagicBands add so much convenience to a visit to Walt Disney World Resort. I love being able to access to all of my entitlements with just the touch of my MagicBand. Annual Passholders receive a complimentary MagicBand with their Annual Pass. Solid color MagicBands are included with your Annual Pass, which you can customize through My Disney Experience. While there is no way to upgrade your solid color MagicBand, you can always purchase graphic MagicBands online or at many of the merchandize locations at Walt Disney World Resort. You can also make a customized MagicBand when you visit MagicBand on Demand at the Tomorrowland Light & Power Co. in Magic Kingdom.

    I like to have a wide variety of MagicBands to choose from so my MagicBand can match the theme park we will be attending, my favorite Character or even my Disney outfit of the day! T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
