    We do not have magic bands. Do we enter the park via the app???? or will something else be needed

    Hey there, Dianne!

    Thanks for coming to see us here at planDisney! I'm excited for you that you'll soon be on your way to Walt Disney World Resort!

    Currently, to enter a theme park, you will need either a MagicBand with your linked theme park admission ticket, or a ticket card itself. In your case, since you're not planning to use MagicBands, you could pick up your ticket cards at a Guest Relations Window, which you'll find located just outside the entry to each of the theme parks. You can also visit the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs and pick up your ticket cards there.

    Keep in mind that you'll also want to be sure to make your theme park reservations using the Disney Park Pass system. You'll need both valid theme park admission and theme park reservation for theme park entry. 

    The good news is that Walt Disney World Resort just recently announced its new Disney MagicMobile service  which will allow Guests to use their mobile device for theme park entry. While the launch dates for the Disney MagicMobile service have not been announced, I think it's going to offer a cool and convenient feature!

    Dianne, here's wishing you a fun visit to Walt Disney World Resort. Enjoy all that magic that awaits you!

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!
