    Hello. I would like to get into MK as easily and quickly as possible, I read I need a card/magic band to get in. I'd like to know if I can get a card before? I'm not staying at disney hotel dont want to pay for bands for 5

    Hi Nancy! 

    Thanks for sending your question to the planDisney Panel! So happy to hear that you are planning a Walt Disney World Vacation! How exciting! I too love arriving at Magic Kingdom or any of the other parks and heading straight in to start the fun! Typically, I have my MagicBands ready to go. However there have been times when I have needed to get my Annual Passholder card or a ticket card before entering. This can only be done at the Walt Disney World Resort, either by visiting Guest Relations at the entrance of any park or one of the ticket windows. Nancy, if you visit Disney Springs before you visit Magic Kingdom, you can stop by the Disney Ticket Center. They will be able to assist you in obtaining a ticket card as well. Your only other option bypass all of this would be to obtain MagicBands. Hope this helps!

    Quick tip: Be sure to download the My Disney Experience app on your mobile phone! Here you can see wait times for attractions and this is where you can place a mobile order for many of the fast food kiosks!

    Nancy, thanks so much for stopping by the planDisney Panel. It has been a pleasure assisting you! Please feel free to send me any other questions you may have!
