    I recently purchased my Florida Resident Annual Pass and I was wondering how I can customize and order a Magic Band?

    Hello Camilo,

    Thanks so much for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question!  Congratulations on becoming an Annual Passholder!  I purchased my first Annual Pass in 2014 and have absolutely loved every magical minute so far.

    To customize and order your MagicBand, you'll first need to activate your Annual Pass.  That activation will happen when you use it for the first time at Walt Disney World.  When you arrive, just visit a theme park ticket window or Downtown Disney Guest Relations with your certificate and a valid photo ID to do that.  At that point, the clock on your year will start ticking and you'll be able to visit My Disney Experience to customize and order the free MagicBand that comes with being an Annual Passholder (you can find that option under MagicBands and Cards).  That does mean you won't have the MagicBand at the time of that first visit, but you can always purchase one before you arrive through the Disney Parks online store or once you're in the park.  

    Also, before that first visit, you'll want to be sure your Annual Pass is linked to your My Disney Experience account (using that certificate if it wasn't automatically linked when you made your purchase) so that you can make your FastPass+ selections in advance.

    Wishing you lots of pixie dust in the year ahead, Camilo!  Please write back if you have any other questions we can help answer for you.
