    Hi! I don’t have a magic band or card. My park tickets are in my Apple wallet. How do I link the park tickets to My Disney Experience App without having an actual magic band or card? Josephine

    Hiya Josephine! 

    Welcome to planDisney! My dear fellow New Yorker, you are more prepared than you realize! If you have already reached the part of using the Disney MagicMobile Service to download a ticket to your digital wallet then you are set. 

    Disney MagicMobile Service works through the My Disney Experience Mobile App. This is the app you had to log into and had to have tickets linked to for the Disney MagicMobile Service to pull from to generate the one sitting in your digital wallet. You don't need to purchase a MagicBand+ or get a card. However, if you want to get a card for free if anything but for a cute souvenir, just head to the Will Call Ticket booths when you arrive and they can set you up. With your tickets in your wallet, you can use your smartphone to tap into the Parks when you arrive or into the Lightning Lane entrance. Make sure you have a portable phone charger if you intend to use your phone in this way as you may be using it more than usual. 

    If you are staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, you can purchase a MagicBand+ if you like before you come at a discounted rate. I have a few bands myself that I use interchangeably based on my mood. It's fun to have different cute designs and colors to wear. I consider them a functional accessory and part of the fun when visiting Walt Disney World Resort. The new MagicBand+ does need to be charged almost daily but even if not charged they can still function to let you enter the Park and Lightning Lane entrances. 

    I hope this helps and if you have any more questions please let me know! 

    Happy Planning!
