    Hello, what’s the difference between an admission card and a park hopper ticket? I thought they were connected to each other. Thanks

    Hi there, Matt! I'm so glad to see you back here at planDisney!

    Another adventure awaits! Before you know it, you'll be starting your day off with a Mickey-shaped treat and hitting the ground running at the parks! Your trip times up with the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival and in my opinion, this one is a can't miss! I can spend a full day at EPCOT, just tasting my way around the World Showcase! The Global Marketplaces offer a variety of quick bites and small drinks, allowing you to experience as many flavors as you can fit in your belly during your adventure. I'd recommend making a stop at the beloved Appleseed Orchard for a Frozen Apple Pie! This non-alcoholic concoction is one of the Festival's most popular drinks for a reason!

    Great question, Matt. You were on the right track, too! Admission cards are simply the little cards that house your tickets. If you purchased a Park Hopper ticket, your admission card would have that information linked so you can use it appropriately throughout your visit. You'll scan the admission card at the gates to get into each park and at the rides to utilize your Lightning Lane selections.

    An important note.. Many Guests, like myself, forego traditional admission cards in favor of other entry methods. MagicBands are my favorite way to house all of my plans and tickets, especially now that Walt Disney World has introduced the new MagicBand+. Other Guests like the convenience of having everything right on their mobile device and opt for the Disney MagicMobile Service.

    Whichever method you choose, you are sure to have a magical time on your vacation!
