    Hi I was wondering if I was supposed to receive a magic band with my annual pass holder purchase. I rode tron a few weeks ago for the passholder opening and I needed a magic band for the lockers. But never received one with my pass purchase.

    Hello, Isabella, my fellow Floridian! Isn't it great to live near the Most Magical Place on Earth? Not only do we get to have Mickey Mouse as our neighbor, but we also have many discounts and promotions available at Walt Disney World Resort. Being a Florida Resident has its privileges, so let's talk about one of my favorites: Annual Passes.

    I became an Annual Passholder with the Florida Resident Pixie Dust Pass last year. I've had a blast discovering the perks of being a passholder, and now I wonder why I waited so long! Isabella, as of last year, Annual Passholders will not receive a complimentary MagicBand with their pass. Instead, passholders will get a discount on the purchase of a MagicBand+, or they can opt to use the Disney MagicMobile Service on their phone in conjunction with the My Disney Experience Mobile App

    Some of my friends don't use MagicBands, Isabella, but I still enjoy the convenience. And the designs are adorable! It's a personal preference, one reason they're no longer given to Disney Resort Hotel guests or Annual Passholders. You can easily customize and order a band through your My Disney Experience account. Remember to log in and have your Annual Pass linked to your account to get the passholder discount. You can also purchase bands at and many shops and resorts throughout Walt Disney World Resort. 

    I'm sure you discovered that TRON Lightcycle / Run Presented by Enterprise provided you with a locker card that functioned the same as a MagicBand for locker access. I hope you enjoyed entering The Grid! I still get chills remembering the launch on that attraction.

    If you decide to purchase a MagicBand, Isabella, I have a secret tip. When you choose the personalization for the back of the band, use your initials and add the year. That helps me remember when I purchased the band, plus it makes a dated keepsake. I have a shoebox full of cherished old MagicBands, each dated to help me remember its story. 

    Thanks for stopping by planDisney, Isabella! We love to help guests plan their visits, so please come back anytime.

    Magic awaits,
