    HI everyone, my family and I are annual pass holders in the UK and DVC members. We are visiting WDW from11th Oct but not staying on WDW property this time. There is conflicting info about the magic bands, will we get these pre-our arrival? Thanks!

    Hi Ian! Thanks for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I'm so sorry for the confusion. I hope I can help clarify things for you.

    As an Annual Pass holder you'll receive a MagicBand with a special slider that shows Annual Pass. If you're coming from the UK you can pick up your Annual Pass MagicBands at Guest Relations.

    Once you have your Annual Pass, simply add the ID number in your My Disney Experience account.  You'll be able to use your Annual Pass MagicBands for your FastPass+ selections that you'll be able to make 30 days before your arrival date when you purchase theme park tickets if you are not staying on property at Walt Disney World Resort for your upcoming trip.

    I hope that helps answer your question as you plan your next magical trip to Walt Disney World Resort.
