    My family is headed to Disney World in a few weeks. We made our park reservations and have our tickets. My question is - do we need proof of our park reservations?

    Hi Ana,

    Welcome to planDisney, and greetings from a fellow Virginian! I'm super excited to hear that your visit to The Most Magical Place on Earth is only a couple of weeks away, and I bet you're practically bursting with excitement! You can read about how my family and several of my fellow Panelists' families count down the days until our own magical trips begin, and hopefully use some of these ideas (or one of your own!) to build anticipation for your family's visit! It will be here before you know it!

    I'm happy to let you know that you won't need to worry about showing any proof of your Disney Park Pass reservations when you enter the theme parks. You'll simply scan your MagicBands or cards at the entrance gates and the system will automagically take care of all of that for you. I'm a planner at heart, though, and I love that any Disney Park Pass reservations show up within the My Plans section of My Disney Experience. If, for some strange reason, that pesky Stitch causes you troubles, you'll have the assurance of your reservations right there while the friendly Cast Members get everything all straightened out for you. 

    In fact, I'd encourage you to download the My Disney Experience mobile app now if you haven't already. While the chance of you needing it to show your Disney Park Pass reservations is extremely small, it will be a handy dandy tool to have to keep track of all of your plans, check current attraction wait times, place any mobile food orders, find turn by turn directions to anywhere within Walt Disney World Resort, and more!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Ana, and if we can help with anything else as you're thinking through all the details of your trip, don't hesitate to come back and see us again. I hope that you and your Mouseketeers have a truly magical vacation and create memories together to cherish for a lifetime!
