    If a magic band is not purchased do you show your ticket to ride a ride

    Hey, howdy, hey Linda, and welcome to planDisney. MagicBands are fantastically magical but they are not necessary to have an awesome trip to the "Most Magical Place on Earth."

    The quick answer to your question is that you do not need to show a ticket to ride any rides. All rides are included with your theme park ticket except those rides, such as TRON Lightcycle / Run that utilize a Virtual Queue with Individual Lightning Lane entry.

    If you want to purchase Disney Genie+ Service or an Individual Lightning Lane entry to reduce the amount of time waiting in lines, then you will need to carry a mobile phone with the My Disney Experience Mobile App installed. With your phone, all MagicBands, Key to the World Cards, and Disney MagicMobile Service passes are linked. You will be able to tap your phone, Apple Watch, plastic ticket, or MagicBand to the Lightning Lane entry points and automagically have shorter line access.

    Linda, I know I gave you a lot of extra information but I believe, as does Scar from Disney's Lion King, in being prepared. Please feel free to write me back directly with any follow-up questions or for other Disney vacation planning tips.

    Enjoy making many Magical Memories.
