    I'm a new passholder and not going to be at Disney until Dec. 2, 2017. I was wondering how to go about getting my magic band or do I have to buy my own. Thanks for your help!

    Hello Janice! Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    Congratulations on becoming a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder. I took the plunge this past year and have taken advantage of enough of the benefits granted to Disney Annual Passholders to justify the price without even considering access to the Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks.

    When you purchase your Disney Annual Pass, it will be linked to you under your My Disney Experience Account under MagicBands and Cards. From here, you can "Get Started" on customizing and arranging your Annual Passholder MagicBand and have it shipped to you.  Sadly, I cannot have mine shipped to me in Canada, but Walt Disney World Resort will ship to any address within the United States.

    You can also plan to have it shipped to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel when you visit for a vacation, by customizing as above and then selecting to "Ship Now" to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel about 10 days before your scheduled visit.

    One of the perks that I have taken advantage of as a part of the Walt Disney World Passholder Program are discounts to various Events and Tours, such as the Disney's Keys to the Kingdom Tour at Magic Kingdom or the new Caring For Giants at Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park.

    Enjoy your Pass!
