    I just purchased an annual pass and have a confirmation number. It is linked in My Disney Experience. Is there any way to get MagicBands before I activate my pass in October? I will not be able to activate in person before this first trip.

    Hi, Amanda!
    Thanks for reaching out to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I purchased my first Annual Pass to Walt Disney World Resort this year. There's something extra exciting when you know you can visit the parks any time of the year. Unfortunately, the only way to receive the complimentary MagicBand that comes  with your pass is to activate it first. You can purchase a band before your visit to the parks through the Disney Store website, the Shop Disney Parks app or you can purchase one once you get to the Disney property. (There's also a Disney Store in the Orlando airport.) 

    I hope that helps you plan our your first visit with your Annual Pass! Let me know if I can help answer any additional questions. I'm happy to help!
