    1. Will actual tickets to the theme parks be mailed or emailed to me? 2. What do the wrist bands actually do? Are they actually needed? 3. Are Meal Plans still available? If not, what are the options?

    Howdy James!

    Welcome to planDisney!  I love all of your questions!  I know you are looking forward to an unforgettable vacation to “The Most Magical Place on Earth” in just a few months!  Thank you for stopping by planDisney and sharing these great questions with us!

    February is a beautiful time to visit the Walt Disney World Resort!  Planning a visit to Neverland is always filled with tons of fun!  Once you have your theme park tickets purchased, you will need to link your theme park tickets to your My Disney Experience.  With your ID Code linked to your My Disney Experience, now it is time to make your Disney Park Pass Reservations!  You can have a hard copy of your theme park tickets mailed to you, but as long as your theme park tickets are linked into your My Disney Experience, then you are all set!  If you decide to purchase a MagicBand, you can have your theme park tickets linked to your MagicBand.  If you choose to purchase a MagicBand, you will be able to capture photos with the Disney PhotoPass Photographers with a scan of your MagicBand.  If you are staying at one of the Disney Resort Collection hotels, your MagicBand will scan you in to your resort hotel room, and you will be able to use your MagicBand for charges throughout the Walt Disney World Resort!  If you decide not to purchase a MagicBand, you will need to utilize your theme park ticket to enter the theme parks and capture unforgettable photos!

    My family and I love all of the Disney Dining Plans!  As Mickey and his pals continue the phased re-opening of the Walt Disney World Resort, all Disney Dining Plans have been placed on pause.  I recommend checking the Disney Parks Blog regularly to see when this feature returns to the Walt Disney World Resort!  Since your vacation is “Just Around the Riverbend,” I recommend scanning through all the advanced dining options so that once you are at your 60-day window, you will be ready to make all of your advanced dining reservations!

    With all the festivities around “The World’s Most Magical Celebration” and the EPCOT International Festival of the Arts during your visit, continue to check the Disney Parks Blog!  The Disney Parks Blog is the best place to learn about everything to see and do during your stay!

    If you have any more planning questions, please come back to planDisney!  We look forward to you coming back to planDisney and sharing more questions with us, James!

    See Ya Real Soon,
