    If I purchase annual passes online from my phone tonight, for our visit tomorrow, how do we get our magic bands and go about our visit?

    Hi there, Heather! Welcome to the wonderful world of the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Thank you for reaching out and allowing us to help you plan your upcoming Walt Disney World Resort vacation! 

    First of all, let me wish you a warm welcome to the Walt Disney World Annual Passholder family! In my experience, becoming an Annual Passholder is truly like joining a second family full of other Guests that love Disney just as much as I do! 

    In addition to the new family members, you’re also going to be receiving some awesome perks! Some of these include special discounts on Disney Resort hotels, discounts on select tours and special events, early registration for runDisney events, discounts on merchandise and select dining options, and so much more! Over the next few weeks, you will also be able to stop by Epcot’s International Flower and Garden Festival in order to receive a complimentary Pluto Passholder magnet

    In order to activate your Annual Pass, you will need to stop by any Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window or Guest Relations at Disney Springs with your purchase voucher and a valid photo ID. If you would like to receive a complimentary MagicBand as an Annual Passholder, you can do so by logging into your My Disney Experience Account and having your customized MagicBand mailed to your home. If you’d like to enjoy the parks prior to receiving your MagicBand, you can always utilize your physical Annual Pass as an admission card as well!

    I hope your upcoming year as an Annual Passholder is filled with as much magic as possible!
