    I just purchased Florida resident weekday annual passes and apparently will get magic bands when we activate them in September. I also made reservations at a Disney resort online and they are offering magic bands.does it matter which one I do?

    Hi Dana, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It looks like you are all set for an AMAZING trip in September! Annual Passes and a Disney Hotel reservation are a tough combination to beat, as you will enjoy many benefits for being an Annual Passholder and a Disney Hotel Guest! Make sure to check them out to make the most of this bit of the magic - I promise it will be worth the read!

    You will be awarded MagicBands for both those choices, and it doesn't matter which one you choose to wear as long as they are both active. Both MagicBands will be linked to your My Disney Experience account and to your fingerprints so you can be happily ever after with them.

    If you'd rather own a single one, though, you can choose to decline one of them under the My Disney Experience menu on the Walt Disney World Resort website. You'll only have to select the "My MagicBands and Cards" option and then you will be able to make that choice.

    I like to keep my MagicBands as souvenirs to remember me of my trips to the Walt Disney World Resort, so that might be a good idea for you, too! How does that sound?

    If you ever need further help or advice, please, stop by once again! It is a pleasure to help fellow Disney fans!

    May the magic be with you,
