If you are a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder then you know the free magnets are a fun little perk of being an AP. The magnets typically come out with each festival that is held at EPCOT, although we have seen them appear in other parks like Animal Kingdom from time to time.
Disney recently announced that a new Passholder magnet for EPCOT’s Flower and Garden Festival will be mailed to them directly! This is how last year’s Tinker Bell Passholder magnet was delivered, too.
Typically Annual Passholders would need to line up in person at the theme parks in order to have their pass scanned by a Cast Member who would then hand them their magnet. This time, however, the magnet will be mailed directly to the Annual Passholders (limit 2 per household) which offers the same great perk with a lot less face-to-face contact in these pandemic-era times.
Disney said the magnet was a thank you to their Annual Passholders:
Hello sunshine! In celebration of the 2021 Taste of EPCOT International Flower and Garden Festival, the Orange Bird Passholder magnet will be mailed to active Passholders in early summer (2 magnets per household). It’s our way of saying “Thank You for being a Walt Disney World Annual Passholder.” Be sure to confirm or update the address for each adult Passholder in your household by March 31; see Important Details below for more information.
If you like many other Annual Passholders collect these magnets, be sure and update your contact information with Disney! Here is How Disney suggests you update your address in order to receive your magnet in a timely manner:
To confirm or update Passholder address:
Click on Profile.
Click on Contact Information.
Check that your shipping address is correct, and update if needed.
Repeat the process for each adult Passholder in your household
It is important to note that some people had to wait quite some time to receive their Tink magnets. This is why it is so important to have your updated information on file!
Right now Disney World is not currently selling new Annual Passes. You have the option of renewing your Annual Pass once it expires but the sale of new Annual Passes is still suspended at this time. Although we have seen hints that Disney might return to selling Annual Passes for Walt Disney World in the near future, Disney has not confirmed when they will go back up for sale as of yet.
We love seeing the Orange Bird on this Passholder Magnet, as the character is prominently used throughout the Flower & Garden Festival — How cute?
If you can’t get enough of the Orange Bird, check out this new mural of Orange Bird that was recently added to Disney Springs!
