    We are staying at Bay Lake Towers & getting annual passes. When will we receive magic bands? Can we drop off luggage at BLT & get our bands there and go directly into the parks? Or will we get them in the mail bc we are staying at a resort?

    Hello, fellow Floridian! Don’t you love living in the same state as the most magical place on earth? I know I do! I am so glad that you decided to become Annual Passholders, and I hope you take advantage of the special discounts offered to Florida Residents. They are excellent, and give you the opportunity to enjoy other treats that Disney has to offer!

    So, just this weekend we headed up to Disney, and while packing, one of my four-year-olds brought me a rainbow of MagicBands and asked in all sincerity - “which one do I take, mama??” Lucky baby has so many different colors that he can’t make a decision when it’s time to choose just one for the trip! That’s what I love about the MagicBand; besides being a convenient “place” to keep all of your information, you can customize it to your taste. There are a variety of colors to choose from, and if you don’t find a solid color that tickles your fancy, at MagicBand on Demand Stations in select Walt Disney Resort locations, you can customize your magic band with delightful Disney-themed artwork!

    If you have linked your Walt Disney World Resort tickets to your My Disney Experience account, you can choose your MagicBand on there. It will ask for a mailing address, and this will be the address that your MagicBands will be sent to approximately one month before your stay. Or, you can wait until check-in at Bay Lake Tower at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. There a Cast Member will check you in, and give you MagicBands. While they usually have a rainbow of colors, your choices will be limited to what is at the Resort desk.

    Shelly, chEARs to your upcoming vacation!
