    We have fast pass+ and magic bands for our November trip. We want to upgrade to annual passes at the beginning of our trip and would like to know if we would lose our fast pass + reservations and have to use cards instead of the magic bands. Thanks!

    Hi there Frank.

    Thanks for visiting the Moms Panel with your question.

    You shouldn't encounter any issue with your FastPass+ reservations when you process your upgrade.
    Visit a Guest Relations desk at one of the parks to process your upgrade. Your Annual Passes should be able to be accessed right on your band (although you still receive card copies to keep with you as back-up and since you'll need them for identification purposes for such things as merchandise discounts in Walt Disney World retail shops etc) and the Cast Member assisting you will be able to link everything together for you.

    I have a Premium Annual Pass myself and was able to access it directly through my band, along with my FastPass+ options, during my recent visit just a few weeks ago. I did make sure to keep my physical copy of the pass with me at all times however.

    When processing your upgrade, let the Cast Member know that you already have selected FastPass+ options for the duration of your visit. He or she will be able to look them up and then re-confirm that all is well after the change over of your tickets to passes is completed.  

    I hope this information based on my own experience helps you out Frank!
    If you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to write back.

    Wishing you a simply Magical time at Walt Disney World!
