Free magnets are a popular perk of being an Annual Passholder. Last year, two magnets were announced for the Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. Unfortunately, things then shut down. The first magnet was Donald with Spike the Bee, and that’s been available this year at Disney’s Animal Kingdom (through March 19). The second magnet was one that people were excited about. I’m of course talking about Orange Bird. These were never passed out anywhere, and many of us (myself included) were disappointed.
We have now learned that Annual Passholders will finally be able to get their Orange Bird magnets! Instead of having to make a trip to a park, they will be mailed. Each household will receive up to two magnets, it doesn’t matter how many Passholders you have in your house.
Disney asks Annual Passholders to make sure that the information is correct in their My Disney Experience Accounts. They want the information updated by March 31. I’m assuming that they’ll start mailing the magnets soon after that.
A few months ago Tinkerbell magnets were mailed to Annual Passholders. Many people did not receive one right away. That is why Disney is asking everyone to make sure that their information is correct. I know of several people who did not receive their Tinkerbell magnets at first, but then contacted Disney and got one eventually. If you don’t receive an Orange Bird magnet right away, give it time. It took a few weeks before.
