    How do I load my annual pass to my magic band?

    Hi Donna,

    Welcome to the Annual Passholder family! While you're not only going to love being able to visit the most magical place on earth whenever you'd like, I'm happy to let you know that you'll also be eligible for lots of great discounts and perks! Hooray!

    When you purchase your Annual Pass directly through Disney, it should automagically link to your My Disney Experience account for you. If for some reason it doesn't, Hakuna Matata - no worries! You'll be able to link it yourself by entering the 12-digit ID Number associated with your Annual Pass. Since no data is actually stored on your MagicBand and your MagicBand simply accesses the data that is held in your My Disney Experience account, once your Annual Pass has been linked to your My Disney Experience account, it will automagically also connect to your MagicBand. I would encourage you to still bring your Annual Passholder card with you into the theme parks, though, because you'll need it as well as a valid photo ID to take advantage of any discounts.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Donna, and please let us know if we can help with anything else! I hope that you have a truly magical year celebrating traditions and creating new memories with your Annual Pass!
