    My husband and I are FL residents. We'll be staying in Wilderness Lodge Dec 2015 and are thinking of getting an annual seasonal pass. Would we make the resort reservation and later purchase the pass online? Does the reservation only come with Magic Bands?

    Hi Lynn!

    Becoming Walt Disney World Passholders is a fabulous idea!  There are so many fantastic perks that come with the pass including dining and shopping discounts.  Hooray!  

    You can purchase the Seasonal Pass at any time, but if you are booking a room only reservation using the Passholder discount, you will need to purchase the pass prior to check-in.  You will also need to check out the block out dates that apply to a Seasonal Pass since you will be coming during the holiday season.  The block out dates for December 2015 have not been released yet, but they could be part of your 2015 vacation.  The current block out dates for 2014 start on December 18th.

    All guest staying at a Walt Disney World Resort will receive complimentary MagicBands.  After you make your reservation, you can customize your MagicBands.  They typically ship about a month prior to your vacation and you can track the status in your My Disney Experience account.

    Have a magical day!
