    We are going on vacation 10/1 - 10/30 and buying annual passes for the trip. If I purchase the annual pass on 9/15, can I have the magic bands sent to my home? Or do I have to be at the parks to activate the pass, then order the bands?

    Hi Susanne! 

    I'm so happy you asked this question.  I myself have recently bought an Annual Pass online and will be using it for the first time in November.   When I purchased the Annual Pass online I was given a confirmation number that I could link to My Disney Experience in order to choose my Disney FastPass+ selections for my upcoming trip.   When I was in My Disney Experience I looked everywhere for the place to customize my Annual Pass MagicBand but could not find anything, so I called a friendly Disney Cast Member who helped me out.   The answer I was given was that you will not be able to customize a MagicBand for your Annual Pass until you activate and use the Annual Pass at a theme park.   Once you have visited a theme park you should see the MagicBand customization option in your My Disney Experience account.   

    Thanks for visiting us today Susanne.  I hope your family enjoys a fabulous years worth of visits to the Most Magical Place on Earth with your new Annual Passes.  Please visit us again with any additional questions you may have.

    Have a Tiggerific Day,
