    Taking a surprise trip (offsite) on Dec. 26th! If I order tickets online will they come as cards like we got last time or will I get the Magic Bands? I'm hoping for the Magic Bands. We're buying 10 day tickets but upgrading to Annual Passes when there.

    Hi Ashley,

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.   I'm so happy you are finding all our advice useful when planning your upcoming adventure.  

    Ashley, since you are staying off site, if you buy tickets they will come as the plastic cards.   You are welcome to purchase a MagicBand when you arrive from many locations throughout the Resort. Cast Members will link your ticket media to your MagicBand when you purchase one.

     When you upgrade to an Annual Pass you will be able to log into your My Disney Experience account and customize a MagicBand that will ship to your home a few weeks after you customize it.  You would not have the customized  MagicBand for your December trip.  You can use your theme park tickets just like a MagicBand to enter the parks and Disney FastPass+ queues, until you receive your Annual Pass holder MagicBand

    Thanks for visiting us again Ashley,  please let us know when we can help you out again.  

    Have a Disney Day,
