    I recently bought annual passes and I think that they come with magic bands. Will Disney mail them to my house AFTER I activate the passes at the park or before? I would like to have them to use during our trip.

    Hi, Carrie!
    Congrats on snagging your very own Annual Passes! I purchased my first one this year and I love how easy it is to decide to visit Walt Disney World Resort all year without worries.

    Since this year was my first experience with the passes, I learned that you will not receive your Annual Pass MagicBands until *after* you activate your passes. That means you can use your Annual Pass card during this first visit, but afterwards, you will have new bands you can use. Be sure to hop into your My Disney Experience account to customize the colors!

    I'm sorry you won't have your MagicBands for that first visit, but having an Annual Pass comes with a lot of perks that I know you'll enjoy!

    Let me know if you have any additional questions. I'm happy to help!
