    I just got my new magic bands for the annual passholder and it came with a magic slider. Do the magic sliders do anything?

    Hi, Theresa!  From one Walt Disney World Annual Passholder to another, welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I am so excited to hEAR that you recently became a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder!  You are going to love all of the benefits that come along with your yEAR of magic.  Be sure to check out all of the discounts and Passholder Extras that you will be able to take advantage of.  Also, when you're visiting the theme parks, don't forget to have the Disney PhotoPass Service photographers take lots of pictures of you and your travel companions.  Unlimited downloads of those photos are included with the purchase of your Annual Pass.

    Annual Passholders will receive a MagicBand with an Annual Passholder slider.  You can wear the slider on your MagicBand as an accessory.  While the slider doesn't really do anything other than look cute, your MagicBand itself has lots of useful functions.  

    Wearing your MagicBand allows you to unlock your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room, enter the theme parks (with valid admission), use your FastPass+ selections, and connect your Disney PhotoPass pictures to your My Disney Experience account.  During your resort hotel stay, you can even use your MagicBand to charge purchases to your Walt Disney World Resort Hotel room.  I love that you can do all of this without ever having to fumble through your bag or wallet.  It's all right there on your wrist!

    Theresa, I hope that your yEAR as a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder is practically perfect in every way!  If we can answer any other questions for you, please don't hesitate to ask.  See ya real soon!
