    As a new passholder who will be activating our passes the same day as we check in, will we get magic bands with our room booking so that we can link to our Annual passes to them since the AP band gets mailed now? Thanks!

    Dear Paula,

    Thank you so much for stopping by to visit us again here at the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your great question about your brand new Walt Disney World Resort Annual Passes!

    I had a very similar situation as you do, in that I made a Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation and purchased an Annual Pass, but then I did not plan to activate it until the first day that I arrived. I was able to order my customized MagicBands ahead of my Walt Disney World Resort hotel, and those were connected to my Walt Disney World Resort hotel reservation. Then, after my trip, my customized MagicBands that were for my Annual Pass were delivered so that I could use them the next time that I visited!

    Hope that helps to clarify! Have a wondEARful vacation!
