Calling ALL Annual Passholders: pull out those calendars! It’s time to mark down some important dates!

Annual Passholders are able to get some special perks in Disney World — from discounts on hotels, meals, and special events, to exclusive merchandise, and more. They also sometimes get FREE Annual Passholder magnets with some pretty fun designs. And now we’ve got an exciting update about a NEW Annual Passholder magnet coming to Disney World!

Disney has announced that a NEW Orange Bird Annual Passholder magnet will be distributed in Disney World soon! An Orange Bird Annual Passholder magnet was released back in April of 2021, but this one has a new design!


Here are some basic things you need to know: The magnet will be available for a limited time — only from July 5th through August 5th. You’ll be able to grab it at Disney’s Wonderful World of Memories at Disney Springs from 10AM to 10PM, while supplies last.

A virtual queue is going to be utilized for this release, similar to what was done for the Mickey and Minnie Annual Passholder magnet. You won’t be able to pick up the magnet for other Annual Passholders in your family or friend group. Instead, Disney has specified that each Passholder has to be present and they will have to show their Annual Pass card, MagicBand, or MagicMobile card, as well as a photo ID.


To access the queue, you’ll want to make sure that all of your family and friends who are Annual Passholders are connected to your account. While they’ll still need to be there to get their magnet, if you’re all connected — you’ll be able to sign up for the Virtual Queue together.

You can’t access the virtual queue until you’re within 45 miles of Disney Springs, so just keep that in mind. Once you’re within that radius, you can go to the My Disney Experience app, select “Annual Passholder Magnet Pick-Up” on the home screen, and join the queue. The Queue will open at around 9:30AM each morning. It might reopen at different parts of the day, so be sure to check on that if it fills up in the morning!


Once you’ve joined the virtual queue, you’ll get an estimated return time. Once your return time is called, you’ll have 1 hour to get to the physical queue in Disney Springs. If you don’t make it in time, you’ll need to rejoin the virtual queue.


And that’s it! Just remember that it’s limited to 1 magnet per person, it’ll only be available while supplies last, and every Passholder has to be there in person to pick up their magnet.

Disney has also indicated that they might discontinue the use of the virtual queue, depending on demand. So be sure to check and see what the situation is like ahead of your trip!


If you’re collecting ALL of those Annual Passholder magnets, mark your calendars for these dates and schedule a Disney trip between these days so you can grab one!

Not an Annual Passholder but you want to become one? Right now, Disney has paused most annual pass sales, though there was a glitch that made it appear Annual Passes were on sale for a limited time. That glitch has since been corrected.
