    I recently renewed my Florida Resident Annual Pass and was wondering if I would have to stop at Guest Services to re-verify my residency, or if I could just head straight into the parks using my Magic Band?

    Hi Melissa,

    Welcome back to the Florida Resident Annual Pass club! It’s a great club to be part of, isn’t it? I love all of the discounts and special offers that are available to us throughout the year. One of our favorite ways to take advantage of the perks is with our discount at Splitsville Luxury Lanes in Disney Springs. We grab a lane, order delicious food, and spend the night bowling down pins! You should try the Crab Rangoon; it’s delicious!

    Even though our discounts are subject to change, the way the Annual Passholder program works is very straightforward. If your MagicBand is linked to your new pass online, you can head straight to the Parks, no need to stop at Guest Relations! If you have not already downloaded the My Disney Experience app, I would suggest doing that before you head to the Parks. It is a convenient place to store all of your Disney passes, as well as an easy place to use FastPass+, make dining reservations and more.

    If you want a new MagicBand before you head to the Parks, make sure that your renewed pass is linked to your account. Go onto My Disney Experience and then choose MagicBands and Cards. On there, you can customize a new one to be sent to you! Make sure to do this at least 11 days before your arrival so that it has the chance to arrive before your visit.

    Melissa, enjoy your Annual Pass, and I hope to see ya’ real soon!
