    What do I use to enter the park without a magic band

    Welcome to planDisney Jennifer!

    There are many magical ways to access your Walt Disney World theme park tickets. There is the MagicBand and the brand new MagicBand+. Link one to your My Disney Experience account to use as your park ticket, charge back to your Walt Disney World Resort hotel room account, and even open the door to your resort hotel room.

    To do all the same functions without a MagicBand, try using Disney MagicMobile Service. With a quick tap of your phone, you will be able to do it all. I use my Apple watch. It is super convenient to tap my watch and go!

    Another option is to pick up a card at any Guest Service location or front desk of your Disney hotel. They will be happy to give you a card that has your Theme Park Ticket linked for a quick tap at the parks. 

    The best part is that all these options are interchangeable, so try a few different ways until you see what works for you. I usually start with my Apple watch, but if I forget to wear it, I move to using Disney MagicMobile Service on my phone.

    A very big step in all of this is to make sure you purchase your Theme Park Tickets and make your Theme Park Reservations prior to arrival in Walt Disney World. The parks have been very crowded so planning ahead is super important!

    So whether you tap your phone, Apple watch, or MagicBand, I hope you have magical days in the Walt Disney World theme parks!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
