    My boyfriend and I are traveling to Disney World in December and will be using FL Resident Tickets. Are we required to pick up physical tickets before we enter the parks? Do we need to purchase MagicBands if we are staying off property

    Hey there, Malia, and welcome to planDisney! Thanks for stopping by the panel with your question! It’s great to have you here planning out your upcoming Walt Disney World Vacation. But with the way the Florida Resident discount tickets are looking, it can be humbling if you are not a Floridian. Walt Disney World treats its Florida neighbors really great! 

    Malia, as long as your Theme Park Tickets are properly linked to your My Disney Experience account and showing in your mobile app, there is no need for you to acquire physical Theme Park Tickets prior to entering the parks. When Florida Resident tickets are purchased, Guests must complete a verification process. However, this process can be completed online. My personal opinion on MagicBands is that they are a Disney Vacation necessity! However, with Walt Disney World now offering the Disney MagicMobile Service, my stance has shifted. With the new MagicMobile Service, Guests can use their mobile device to tap into the Theme Park with a MagicMobile Pass. This free option is also great if you’d prefer to save some funds for Disney Snack purchases! 

    I hope this helps, Malia! If you have more questions while planning your Disney Vacation, stop back by and let me know

    You’ve got a friend in me,
