    Default AP questions

    Will my annual pass be on my magicband? Is parking included with an annual pass?

    Even though your AP is on your band you will need to show the actual card and photo ID in order to use the discount at many places. I don't know why some need it and others don't but they do.

    Remember, technically, NOTHING is "on" your magic band. Bands are merely an electronic key to access your MDE account. That account holds all your information including your tickets (all forms, including AP). No problem using your MB to enter the Parks. As mentioned, though, many locations still require you to show the actual yellow AP card and picture ID in order to get discounts.

    Parking is included with most APs (some of the lower end, Florida resident passes are exempted). You can either show the AP card, or have the attendant scan your MB. The card is often quicker.

    Yep, I make sure to have my AP ready whenever I make a purchase or enter a parking lot. Makes things go so much quicker... and cheaper too!

    BTW - it also makes premium parking $20 which was worth it during Christmas week.

    I have the premium plus annual pass and parking is included and also photo pass.

    I have to show my AP card to get into parking.

    I also have to show my AP and photo ID to get an AP discount with any purchase.

    My AP is linked to my magic band for entrance and fast pass purposes.

    Can I buy all of the annual passes through my Disney experience and link them to the others' accounts, or do we have to do one transaction at a time through each person's My Disney Experience?

    If everyone is linked to your account, you should be able to buy them all through your account and then assign them to each individual. I haven't tried it though except for people that I manage in my account. If you have folks that have their own accounts and are linked to yours, I'd buy just one first and try to assign it to one of those people. If it lets you (and I'm betting it will), all's good. If not, assign it to someone you manage. You'd then have to go with plan B and buy them through individual accounts.

    Thanks for the idea. I never would have thought of buying one to try it.

    I buy my families APs and enter them all in to my account. They each have their own account and we are linked.

    That's what 40 years of systems experience told me "should" happen. Thanks for the validation.

    But, as we all know, "should" and Disney IT doesn't always work out

    Correct, but I was purposely trying to not go there!
