    My family and I just decided to go to Disney on Monday August 11th, we purchased the annual passes. Will I be able to pick up my Magic Bands when I get to the parks and will I have to pay for them or do they come with the annual pass?

    Hi Natasha,

    How exciting, your vacation is tomorrow!

    I also recently became a Passholder and can share with you my experience.  First, if you have already purchased your Annual Pass vouchers, bring them and your I.D. to Guest Relations at any of the theme parks in order to exchange them for the actual Annual Pass RF-enabled cards.  You will receive an Annual Pass RF-enabled card at Guest Relations at the time of activation/purchase of your Annual Pass.  If you already have a MagicBand, you may bring it with you and link your Annual Pass to your existing MagicBand at that time.  You will also receive another MagicBand if you wish, but it will be mailed to you at a later date.  In order to receive your complimentary Annual Pass MagicBand you will need to first log in to your My Disney Experience account.  Through My Disney Experience you will be able to select the option "My MagicBands and Cards" and confirm the order for your new MagicBands.  All of this information will be explained to you at Guest Relations when you purchase or activate your Annual Pass.

    Since I already had a MagicBand with me when I purchased my Annual Pass, Guest Relations was able to associate my existing MagicBand to it.  However if you do not, you can use your Annual Pass RF-enabled card until you confirm your order for your new MagicBand.

    Have a wonderful trip Natasha, and I hope you make many more this year!
