    Hi when I linked my Disney tickets it said when you arrive, head to the parks main entrance & use your MagicBand or card that is linked to your account. I don't have any Magicbands so I was wondering how I would get that.

    Hi Carolyne,

    Welcome to planDisney! Hooray for your soon-to-be visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    The good news is that you have a number of ways to enter the park, so let's talk through each of them. I am hoping that your vacation package or resort hotel and theme park tickets are linked in your My Disney Experience account. If so, log into My Disney Experience. Once you login, you should see that reservation in My Plans near the top of the page. Next to that, you should see an option to Choose MagicBands. Once you click on that link, you can customize MagicBands for everyone in your party. Depending on the date you order, they may be shipped to your home address or you may need to pick them up when you check into your resort hotel.

    We have also purchased MagicBands from shopDisney. If you are on a budget, you certainly do not have to order MagicBands. On my most recent visit a little over a week ago, I also used Disney MagicMobile service from my iPhone. Once you create a digital pass, you can scan that pass at the entrance to each theme park. 

    My family still adores MagicBands though, so we use those most often. We also scan our Magicbands when taking Disney PhotoPass photos, and when using Disability Access Service to access an attraction. The good news about MagicBands is that we have been able to reuse them for multiple visits. Just make sure each MagicBand you order is linked in your My Disney Experience account and connected to the person who will use it.

    Given the dates of your arrival, I also hope that you have secured a few advanced dining reservations. While we appreciate Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering, we love having a definitive time to dine at table-service restaurants, especially in the summer when we need an air-conditioned break. If you have not secured advanced dining reservations, you can also try Mobile Dine Walk-up Availability when you arrive. Availability is limited but I did see some on my last visit.

    Carolyne, I hope this helps! Get those MagicBands ordered or sign up for Disney MagicMobile service. It's almost time for your Incredible Disney visit!

    Magic and memories,
