    I just purchased two annual passes, don't plan on going until her birthday in July. I want to give her the magic bands as her birthday present. Is there a way to get the Magic bands before we go to the park? If so where, how would I do so. Thank you

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Sasha!

    Let me first say that is the BEST birthday present that anyone should ever receive! I’d be over the moon if I got a Walt Disney World Annual Pass as a birthday gift. She is going to love this magical gift! 

    Sasha, unfortunately, your window to customize and order your Annual Pass MagicBands won’t open until you activate them at the parks. But, here’s an idea! Have you browsed the super cute custom MagicBands online? You could purchase one to have on hand for the birthday reveal and just link it to your My Disney Experience account so it’s ready to use once you activate the Annual Pass. There are so many to choose from! I recently spotted some beautiful Disney’s Beauty and the Beast themed MagicBands, perfect for fans of the film. And with the new MagicBand2, you can customize the removable icon and place it into a MagicKeeper of your choosing. There are many great options to make this birthday surprise extra special! 

    One last tip, be sure to get familiar with all the great perks and benefits of being an Annual Passholder. Currently, you can enjoy 20% off select restaurants and merchandise to commemorate the 45th anniversary of the Walt Disney World Resort.

    I hope this is the most magical birthday yet! Don’t forget to get a complimentary celebration button to alert the cast members of your celebration. You never know what extra pixie dust can come your way. 

    Please come back and see us again soon!
