    I'm a Florida resident and just purchased the weekday annual pass for my family. Should we expect to receive the Magic Bands or are they a separate purchase?

    Hi Donna,

    Welcome to the Florida Resident Annual Passholder family! It's a great place to be. As part of every annual pass, including the Weekday Select Pass, you are entitled to a complimentary MagicBand. I don't remember exactly how long it took to receive my new MagicBand after my most recent pass renewal, but I would expect it to be within the first month or so.

    If you go have linked your annual pass to your My Disney Experience account, you should see your passholder MagicBand ready for customization in the MagicBands and Cards section soon. You'll be able to choose your color and the name for the inside.

    Since you are a new passholder, make sure you check out the passholder benefits and discounts. The 20 percent merchandise discount being offered as part of the Walt Disney World 45th anniversary celebration is awesome, along with the dining discounts and other special offers for resorts and events.

    Thanks, Donna, for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. Come back any time if you need help making the most out of your annual pass and your year of Disney fun. Enjoy!
