"Theme Park Entry—Coming in October
Annual Passholders have a theme park entry lane at each of the Walt Disney World theme parks. Be sure to follow the signage featuring the program's new look. And coming soon, Passholders who have affiliated their My Disney Experience account with their Annual Pass will experience a unique color and sound sequence when using their MagicBands to enter Walt Disney World Resort theme parks—it's our way of saying "welcome back to the magic" each time you visit!"
Totally agree with you on both points. It's one of the silly reasons why I like my few LE bands. I don't get why they basically stopped making new bands with effects.I’d rather have the LE effects. It’s a shame they’ve seemingly discontinued that in recent new bands.
Here's the specific wording -
"Annual Passes may be unavailable for purchase at any time."
