    Hi Everyone, Will be traveling to Disney in June 2019 and was wondering, is it possible to receive the magic card before arriving or is that given to you when you pick up the tickets. Thank You

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jessica!

    You are counting down the DAYS to your magical visit to Walt Disney World Resort – how exciting is that?! 

    It sounds like you have purchased your theme park tickets online and selected the option to receive a confirmation number by email, which you’ll use to pick up your Admission Cards at a theme park ticket booth.
    At the time of purchase, you can make this selection or opt to have Admission Cards mailed to you. Because your visit is coming up so soon, I wouldn’t risk trying to have the cards mailed, because it would not be magical if they didn’t arrive in time! Since I don’t know your exact circumstances, I recommend calling (407) 566-4985 to ask about your options for your upcoming trip.

    Jessica, the confirmation number you received when you purchased your tickets has magic in it, too. If you haven’t already, be sure to log in to (or set up) your My Disney Experience account and use that number to link your tickets to each Guest’s profile. Once you have linked tickets, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections. Then, on arrival day, you’ll just need to pick up the tickets, head into the theme park, and let the magic begin!

    I love that you called your Admission Cards “magic cards” because they really are magic! You’ll be able to use those cards to enter the theme parks, scan to enter the FastPass+ queue, and tap whenever you pose with a Disney PhotoPass photographer. You’ll find fun Disney-themed lanyard card holders in the theme park gift shops, which make it even easier to keep track of those magical cards (plus, I know I can’t ever have enough magical accessories).

    I hope I’ve answered your question, Jessica! Please come back and see us if you have any questions as you count down the days and do your packing, planning, and Disney dreaming.

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
