    If I already linked our WDW tickets to our magic bands, do I still need to physically have the tickets with me when I arrive to the park?

    Hi Mimi!

    Thanks for your question--it is a great one! Since you have already linked your Park Admission Tickets to your MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account, it is not essential that you have the actual Cards with you since they perform the same function as MagicBands as far as Park Admission goes. I always recommend that Guests still bring their Cards along, however, just in case. If there were ever a glitch in the system when you are entering the Park via your MagicBands, it's always good to have a backup! I like to keep my entire family's Cards with me just so we have them if ever we might need them. It just makes me breathe a little easier knowing I have a plan B in case our MagicBands are a little tempermental. I would definitely suggest you bring yours along, too

    I'm so glad you stopped by the Disney Parks Moms Panel. I hope you will come back if there is anything we can do to help you with planning tips or ideas. Best wishes to you for a magical Walt Disney World vacation.

    Have a fantastic day!
