    Does WDW still give free magicbands to annual passholders? Each year, after renewing I used to get a new free magicband. Since renewing in 2019, can't see anything on the passholder website about getting a new band.

    Hi Stephen,
    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel and thanks for thanks for submitting your question!

    I don't know about you, but I love being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder! There are so many perks that come with an Annual Pass that I keep coming back for more every year.  We love having free theme park parking, discounts on select dining and merchandise, special Passholder events, Passholder magnets, and how could I possibly forget theme park admission?

    Another perk is a brand new MagicBand each year when you renew your pass.  If you haven't activated your pass (you may need to show your Florida Resident ID at Guest Services to verify that you're a Florida Resident), your MagicBand will not show up in My Disney Experience.  If you have activated and used your pass already and your MagicBand is not showing up, I'd suggest trying My Disney Experience on a desktop computer instead of the smartphone app.  If you still can't order your MagicBand, you may call the fantastic Cast Members working the Annual Passholder phone line; they would be more than happy to set this straight for you.

    Stephen, I hope this helps you add that shiny new MagicBand to your collection. Please feel free to stop by and visit us again with any additional questions.

    Best Wishes,
    Amy S.
