    Hi. If I have linked my will call tickets to the app and also made my park reservation do I still have to collect the will call tickets? Also can we collect from Disney Springs the day before we go to the Parks? Thank you

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Geraldine!

    Thank you for sending your first question to us. We are thrilled to hear you will soon visit the Walt Disney World Resort, and we are excited to be part of your Disney vacation planning adventure!

    You do not have to retrieve will-call tickets if you do not wish to do so. You can access the magic and enter the theme parks in different ways. Besides physical ticket cards, you can also use a MagicBand and Disney MagicMobile service. You can use cards, MagicBands, and Disney MagicMobile service interchangeably during your Disney vacation, so choose whichever option works best for you.

    MagicBands are pixie-dusted wristbands that conveniently connect you to all your My Disney Experience plans. You can use a MagicBand to enter the theme parks with valid admission and theme park reservations, link Disney PhotoPass content to your account, redeem Disney Genie+ and individual Lightning Lane entry selections, and even unlock the door of your Disney Resorts Collection hotel room and make purchases during your stay. Upon arrival, you can purchase MagicBands at several merchandise locations throughout the Walt Disney World Resort.

    Disney MagicMobile service is a feature available in the My Disney Experience app that allows you to create a Disney MagicMobile pass and link it to your digital wallet to use eligible iPhones, Apple Watches, or Google Pay enabled Android phones to access entry to the theme parks. When you arrive at the entrance of the parks, all you have to do is hold your smart device near an access point, and voilá, you will be ready to go! What I also like about Disney MagicMobile service is that Guests can access MagicBand features like linking Disney PhotoPass content to their Disney account, accessing Virtual Queue attractions, and even charging purchases to their Disney Resort hotel folio during their stay.

    Since you plan to visit Disney Springs the day before heading out to the parks, you are welcome to stop by the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs to collect physical ticket cards. If you decide to use a MagicBand during your vacation, I recommend taking advantage of your visit to Disney Springs and stopping by World of Disney store, Marketplace Co-Op – D-Tech on Demand, and Disney’s Pin Traders to check out their MagicBand selections.

    planDisney tip: If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can also request a Key to the World card upon arrival and use it to enter the parks.

    I hope this information helps you choose the best method to access the magic during your visit, Geraldine. Do not hesitate to stop by again if you have additional questions, and have a pixie-dusted visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    See ya real soon,
