    How do we get the Disney Cards vs. the MagicBands?

    Heigh-Ho Celia,

    It’s exciting to know your Walt Disney World vacation is just a couple of months away. And as your arrival date comes closer we are happy to help with any last-minute questions you may have. 

    Guests have a variety of ways to access their Walt Disney World tickets to enter the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. The well-loved MagicBands, the brand-new Disney MagicMobile service and Keys to the World card are all options for Guests. Guests, wishing to acquire a Keys to the World Card and staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, can request the cards upon arrival and use them to unlock their resort rooms, have charging privileges and use them at a touch point to gain access to the Walt Disney World Theme Parks. 

    Guests, not staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, will make their way to a Guest Relations/Ticket Counter located outside the first Walt Disney World Theme Park they plan to visit. Guests should have their Will Call Confirmation ID or have their My Disney Experience information ready for the Cast Member. Each ticket will be assigned a Keys to the World Card to be used for the entirety of their Walt Disney World stay. Once received you are ready to begin your day at one of the four Walt Disney World Theme Parks to make many magical and memorable moments.

    As a side note, take a look at the new Disney MagicMobile service. Guests with Apple devices, soon coming to Android devices, are able to design a digital mobile pass through their My Disney Experience mobile app. And with your smart device, as you enter a Walt Disney World Theme Park, access your tickets in the wallet feature and scan your phone at the touch point for entrance. The Disney MagicMobile service also has additional features such a Google Pay, scanning for Disney PhotoPass opportunities and to gain access to your virtual queue for Star Wars: Rise of the Resistance. This service continues to add more exciting conveniences for Guests and is worth staying on top of.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
