    I own Magic Bands from previous visits. Do I have to use them on our next trip or can we just use the park tickets we get from Disney?

    Hello there, Angela!

    I’m so glad that you came back to planDisney to ask another question. There’s so much happening at the Walt Disney World Resort when you are visiting in October. You will be feelin’ gourd by the time you head home, especially if you have time to check out the 6 Halloween, Fall Must-Do’s at Walt Disney World that the Disney Parks Blog laid out. 

    Angela, you can enter any of the four theme parks by scanning either your ticket card from a Walt Disney World ticket window, a MagicBand that is linked to your My Disney Experience account, or your mobile device with Disney MagicMobile service on the My Disney Experience app. 

    Any of these three options will work as long as the ticket is linked to your My Disney Experience account and you have a theme park reservation for the park you plan on visiting. I recommend making your theme park reservations early on since reservations are subject to availability. 

    My favorite way to enter the theme parks is with my MagicBand. You can check if the MagicBand is linked to your My Disney Experience account in the mobile app by selecting the three horizontal bars in the bottom right corner of the screen and “MagicBands and More.” Under your name, you can press “View MagicBands” to see what MagicBands are associated with your account. Compare the MagicBand code in the app with the code on the back of the MagicBand itself to confirm that the band is associated with your account. 

    Not only is the MagicBand a great way to enter the theme parks, but you can use it to unlock your Disney Resort hotel room, enter Lightning Lane entrances, and much more. 

    May the magic be with you!
