    Good morning! We bought our magic bands because we’re not staying at a Disney resort. I linked my Will Call number to them. Do I still have to go to will call?

    Hello Joseph!

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    You're ahead of the game for purchasing your Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park Tickets and linking them to your MagicBand! Isn't it exciting to have all that technology in a tiny band? With a simple tap, you're able to obtain entry into the parks with valid admission and check in at FastPass+ entrances. It makes for such a convenient and carefree vacation!

    I have great news for you, Joseph! If you've purchased standard tickets and have linked your MagicBands on the same account, you do not have to stop at Will Call to pick up the physical tickets, as you can use your MagicBands. Regardless of whether or not you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel, the MagicBand will work as your Walt Disney World Resort Theme Park Ticket and also allow you to redeem your FastPass+ selections that you have made. 

    It sounds like you have a My Disney Experience account already set up, which is awesome. Make sure you have your party on your Family and Friends list so you can all plan together. It makes it that much more fun!

    Joseph, I hope you have an enchanting vacation at The Most Magical Place on Earth!
