    Do I need a paper ticket or magic band to enter the park or does the Disney app have a mobile ticket for entry?

    Hey there, Julie!

    Thanks for bringing your question to planDisney! We planDisney Panelists are Disney vacationers and Disney Guests just like you who enjoy sharing our own insights gleaned from all our travels to Disney destinations.

    Reading your question and -- more importantly -- your planned arrival date for your magical stay at Walt Disney World Resort, I must say I feel a bit like the frantic White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland singing "I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date!" As I write this and offer a response, it's my hope that you're already enjoying your arrival to The Most Magical Place on Earth and all the theme park magic at Walt Disney World Resort. 

    You ask a really great question about the My Disney Experience mobile app that many Guests making plans might want to ask. While you'll currently need a theme park admission ticket card or a MagicBand linked to your purchased theme park tickets for theme park entry, there are some cool features that the My Disney Experience mobile app offers.

    The ability to see attraction wait times, quickly access step-by-step directions for destinations all around Walt Disney World Resort, place mobile food orders, join virtual queues, and manage your day-to-day Resort plans and itineraries make the app a friendly go-to tool. In fact, in my view, the My Disney Experience mobile app is a must-have Walt Disney World Resort accessory. The great news is that there are exciting and innovative features coming to the My Disney Experience app this year, and -- as a Guest myself -- I am so looking forward to learning more about these new features.

    Julie, I hope you're enjoying all the magic during your vacation to Walt Disney World Resort!

Meet the Panelist: Jerry, Pennsylvania

The playful and creative optimism of all things Disney has enthralled me since I was a kid. I loved watching "The Wonderful World of Disney" on Sunday nights, seeing all the live-action and animated classics in theaters, and — of course — visiting "The Most Magical Place on Earth" for the first time 45 years ago. These days, the big kid in me still loves to play Disney. As a long-time Disney destinations vacationer, I'm looking forward to helping you play Disney starting here at planDisney!
