    At MK for a one day visit. I am purchasing tickets online ahead of time to link an ADR and hopefully add fast passes. Will we need to stop at the ticket window and have our tickets issued to us to be able to use scheduled fast passes at the attraction?

    Hi Christine!

    Purchasing tickets and making those advanced dining reservations and FastPass+ selections is one of my favorite parts of planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation because it means the magic is getting closer!  If you and the rest of your party have active MagicBands attached to your My Disney Experience accounts, when you assign the tickets to the members of your party that will be using them, they will be attached to their My Disney Experience accounts.  You will be able to enter the parks and check in for your FastPass+ selections without going by the ticket window or guest services.  Just scan your MagicBand at the park entrance and attraction entrances for your FastPass+ selections!

    If you do not have MagicBands, your tickets will still be linked to your My Disney Experience accounts when you assign them at checkout.  If you have the hard cards mailed to you, they work the same way as MagicBands and there is no need to visit a ticketing window.  You can just scan your card at the park entrance and at the attraction entrances.  If you have the confirmation emailed to you, you will need to bring that confirmation email, a photo ID, and the card you used to purchase the tickets with you to the park.  Just show them to a Cast Member at the park entrance turnstiles, and they will give you your hard card tickets.  You can then use the hard card tickets just like a MagicBand for park entry and at FastPass+ entrances!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
