I am an Annual Passholder who is not currently a Guest of a Disney Resort hotel. Can I use my MagicBand to make purchases?
Annual Passes – Frequently Asked Questions
No. At this time, only Guests who are currently registered Guests at a Disney Resort hotel are able to use a MagicBand to charge purchases to their room—if they link the MagicBand to a credit card during check-in.
However, your MagicBand allows you to enter the parks with your Annual Pass admission and link Disney PhotoPass photos to your Disney account.
For more information, please call (407) WDW-PASS or (407) 939-7277—or use the Annual Passholder Help Form to email our dedicated Help Team with any questions you may have about your annual pass. Guests under age 18 must have parent or guardian permission to call.
Disney MagicMobile Service
In March 2021, Walt Disney World Resort introduced Disney MagicMobile service, an easy, more contactless way to enter Disney theme parks through the power of an eligible iPhone, Apple Watch or Google Pay enabled Android phone.
As part of this new service, guests can choose from several Disney-themed MagicMobile Pass designs in the My Disney Experience app—and coming soon, be on the lookout for new exclusive designs featuring Orange Bird and Figment just for Annual Passholders. As a reminder, valid park admission and a park reservation are required for park entry.
Complimentary MagicBand Update
As more Walt Disney World Passholders continue to discover Disney MagicMobile service, we will no longer be offering complimentary MagicBands with annual pass purchases and renewals made August 16, 2021 and beyond. Annual Passholders will continue to receive a special discount on purchased MagicBands—with even more designs to choose from in the future. Walt Disney World Annual passholders may continue to use a variety of options, including:
- Disney MagicMobile service
- Current MagicBands linked to their Disney account
- Newly purchased MagicBands (available at a special discount for Annual Passholders)
- Annual pass cards
