    I just purchased an annual pass. Do I get magic bands for free? Or do I have to purchase them?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sheila!

    Thank you for sending us your great question. Congratulations on your Walt Disney World Resort annual pass purchase. You have unlocked "a World” of benefits, discounts and endless magic by becoming a Walt Disney World Resort annual passholder!

    When I first became a passholder, one of the first things I wanted to do was order my complimentary MagicBand! In fact, what first brought me to the Disney Parks Moms Panel before I became a Panelist was this very same question. You have just made me reminisce — in the most magical way possible. I thank you for that!

    Yes, as an annual passholder you are eligible to receive a complimentary MagicBand. In order to customize and receive your MagicBand in the mail, you must first activate your annual pass at any Walt Disney World Resort theme park ticket window, Guest Relations location or Disney Springs Guest Relations location. Once you have activated your annual pass, please return to the “MagicBands and Admission Cards” section of your My Disney Experience account and you will see the option to customize your MagicBand has become available.

    Did you know? If you decide to stay at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, you will be eligible for an additional complimentary MagicBand. All Disney Resort hotel Guests receive complimentary MagicBands in advance of their vacations or at the time of checking-in to their Disney Resort hotels.

    Sheila, I hope I have thoroughly answered your question. If you need any additional help, please visit the Disney Parks Moms Panel again!

    Wishing you an Unforgettable Year,
