    I am not staying on property and have bought tickets. The email I received with the bar code for my tickets says I need to bring the email, id, and credit card used to purchase tickets to park entrance. If I set up a magic band do I still need these?

    Welcome to planDisney, Heidi!

    Thank you for stopping by once again with a great question. You must be excited about returning to the Walt Disney World Resort in less than a month!

    You are welcome to use your MagicBand with valid admission to go straight to the parks! This is just one of the great features of this all-in-one device. Besides using it to enter theme parks and water parks, you can use your MagicBand to link digital content captured by Disney PhotoPass service to My Disney Experience, and unlock even more magic when you stay at a Disney Resort hotel.

    Be sure your theme park tickets are properly linked to your Disney account and remember to make Disney Park Pass reservations for the dates and parks you plan to visit. Visit My MagicBands and Cards to verify if your MagicBand is active and you will be ready to go! I still recommend keeping your confirmation e-mail and bringing your ID and the credit card used to purchase the tickets just in case.

    planDisney tip: The battery inside your MagicBand may not be working anymore if it is older than 2 years. I have already used MagicBands that are older than that, but if you have any issues, Cast Members at park entrance will gladly help you. You are also welcome to purchase a new MagicBand at shopDisney.com before your visit or stop by retail and merchandise locations at the Walt Disney World Resort upon arrival.

    I hope this helps you while planning, Heidi. Come back to visit us soon if you have more questions!

    Best magical wishes,
