    Can you get a Magic Band from the cashier or on site when you purchase an annual pass from the ticket counter?

    Hi Monica!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! How exciting that you are about to become a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder. Get ready for a year of magic and thrills, discounts, PhotoPass Photos, exclusive merchandise, and special events! There is so much to experience at the Walt Disney World Resort with your Annual Pass.

    While you will be able to customize a complimentary MagicBand that is included with your Annual Pass, you won’t be able to receive it on the day you purchase your pass. You will be given an Annual Passholder Card that you will use to access the theme park that day. Once you have used the Annual Pass on the first day, you can go online to customize your MagicBand. It will then be mailed to your home address.

    If you have an older MagicBand at home that is associated to you, as long as it still has an active battery, it should work for you that day. Also, you could purchase a MagicBand inside the theme parks, or from Shop Disney in advance, then associate that band with your account on the My Disney Experience Mobile App. You can even custom design your own band at several locations with Retail MagicBand on Demand.

    I hope this helps to answer your question, Monica, and welcome to an exciting year of being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder!
