    Hello, my family and I have tickets for the parks, but I did not receive a card for them, and because we are not staying on property we do not have magic bands. Is there a way for us to still get FastPasses without having a card or magic bands?

    Hey Amanda! Thanks for your question and for visiting with us!

    Even though you have not received your admission cards in the mail, you can still make your FastPass+ reservations when your 30-day window opens. 

    If you purchased your theme park tickets from the Walt Disney World website, you will be able to secure your FastPass+ reservations. Your tickets automatically link to your My Disney Experience account when you purchase them. Just make sure that if you purchased tickets for multiple people that each ticket is linked to the correct guest. You can connect to other guests that you will be traveling with by linking your My Disney Experience accounts through the My Family and Friends link. 

    Once your 30-day window has opened, which is 30 days from the date you plan to visit the theme park, you can begin securing your FastPass+ attractions and shows. Once those reservations have been made you're all set to head to the theme park. When you arrive at your first Disney theme park, stop by Guest Relations, which is located at the entrance of each theme park, a Cast Member there will provide you with an Admission Card. This card will be used to tap the Mickey silhouette as you enter the theme parks and the FastPass+ lines. You can also use your Admission Card to have your PhotoPass pictures stored on your My Disney Experience account. After each picture, the PhotoPass photographer will tap your Admission Card to their camera and your photo will magically appear in your My Disney Experience account. 

    Amanda, I hope this helps! If you have more questions that arise before your Disney vacation, please stop by and visit with us again soon.
