    Do I have to go to disney springs prior to my park visits to get a ticket card to avoid the very first queue at each park, or I can skip that line using the ticket in my Disney Experience App or Apple Watch, newbie here, never been to WDW before

    Hi there Gustavo and welcome to planDisney. Wahooo! You are going to Walt Disney World Resort. This is incredible and I am so excited for you. You are traveling at an amazing time. Be sure to stop by Guest Relations when you enter your first theme park to get a First Time Button. Wear it with pride and save this complimentary souvenir.

    The technology that Mickey and his team have brought to Disney Parks across the globe is spectacular. In fact, I find it so easy to get into the theme parks now because everything is stored in the My Disney Experience account.

    You do not need to go to the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs or the ticket windows at a theme park to get into the park as long as you have your theme park reservation and an active ticket linked and available through Disney MobileMagic Service on your phone or smartwatch. Personally, I think it is best to have the Key to the World card as a backup in case you have technology issues, which can happen. Typically I link my tickets after I purchase them, verify through the My Disney Experience App that they are there then create a Disney MagicMobile pass. You may also visit Guest Relations when you are inside the theme park about your tickets preventing you from having to be in the long line outside of the theme park.

    planDisney Pro Tip: Make sure you have your theme park reservations and dining reservations booked prior to arriving especially if you want a Table Service restaurant. The "Walk-up" option does not guarantee a spot. Please take the time to peruse the menus of the restaurants you are interested in then make the advance dining reservation if they are available. Please note that dining reservations may be made up to 60 days in advance and may be canceled no less than two hours before the seating. 

    Gustavo, I hope your journey across the Atlantic is exciting as you spend time with Mickey and the rest of the Fab Five. Please stop by planDisney again for more tips or feel free to write me directly with follow-up questions.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
