    Just purchased annual passes on line. Can i purchase bands now, link my digital annual passes to them, before I actually pick up my paper form passes at guest relations?

    Hi Jodi,

    Congratulations on joining the Annual Passholder family! You’re going to LOVE visiting “The Most Magical Place on Earth” whenever you’d like, plus you’ll be able to take advantage of some wonderful perks and discounts.

    Yes, you may absolutely go ahead and purchase MagicBands and link them to your My Disney Experience account. Since no data is actually stored on the MagicBands, they simply link back to whatever is already in your My Disney Experience account, including your newly purchased annual passes. Those should have automagically linked to your account, but if they didn’t, Hakuna Matata… no worries, you can link them yourself if need be. I did want to let you know, too, that MagicBands are reusable, so if you have any left over from a previous trip within the last year or two, you’ll still be able to use them on your next visit. Also, don’t forget that you’ll be eligible for complimentary MagicBands as an Annual Passholder! You won’t be able to customize them and have them shipped to your home, however, until after you have activated your annual passes by taking your voucher and valid photo IDs to any theme park ticket window or to Guest Relations at Disney Springs. MagicBands are a GREAT way to express your Disney style, so I hope you find the perfect ones for your upcoming visits.

    Thanks so much for bringing your great question to us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jodi, and please let us know if we can help with anything else. I hope that you have a truly magical year celebrating Disney traditions and discovering new favorites with your annual passes!
