    I am thinking of getting an annual pass. I already have a magic band but some of those in my group do not. Would it be possible for me to receive an unassigned magic band with my AP so I could give it to someone in my group to activate?

    Hi Rebecca, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Let's get you on your way to that Annual Passholder life!

    I live in Florida and I've had a Walt Disney World Annual Pass for...hmm, let's see...well, it's been a very long time, indeed! Whether you're thinking of getting an Annual Pass for one long trip, or you're planning a few visits to the Sunshine State over the next year, you can get a ton of value from being a Passholder. There are lots of special Passholder benefits and discounts available, plus you'll get Passholder news to keep you in-the-know about everything going on around the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Another benefit to being an Annual Passholder is getting a free MagicBand! Guests can order one MagicBand per Annual Pass that is automatically assigned to your unique Pass when you place the order, so there's no way to share it with someone else. But that doesn't mean you can't still share the MagicBand fun! If your group is planning a stay in a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, your traveling mates will also get complimentary MagicBands as part of your reservation. If you're staying off-site, you can buy MagicBands for your companions online or at Walt Disney World and link them in their My Disney Experience accounts. Then everyone can just tap and go!

    Rebecca, I wish you many magical Disney days ahead with your new Annual Pass. I hope this helps you with your plans, and that you'll stop by and see us again if you have any more questions.

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

    Kathy K.

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
