    I have park admission and reservation. What do I bring when I arrive?

    Hi Zina,

    Welcome to planDisney! I am so happy to hEAR that you have a trip planned to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I am not sure if you have a resort hotel reservation or a theme park reservation, so let me first say that I hope it's a Disney Park Pass system reservation and that your theme park tickets are linked in My Disney Experience. You will need to use either Disney MagicMobile Service, a MagicBand, or Admission Card to scan into a theme park. My family prefers MagicBands because we just put them on our wrists. With Disney MagicMobile Service, we have to pull out our phones and with Admission Cards, we have to pull those out as well. We find the MagicBands more efficient to use and they come in all kinds of fun designs. Having said that, using your mobile phone would not cost any additional money and MagicBands are no longer complimentary for Disney Resorts collection hotel guests, so you may prefer to use your phone!

    As always, when I travel, I bring an official government-issued form of identification. I also bring a credit card and cash. We use cash to tip at our resort hotel. I also create a chart or spreadsheet with our plans. We either print this out or have access to it in Google drive. Since my family loves to dress for fun, we bring our matching t-shirts. There are a number of other items you might want to consider packing. Be sure to check out our planDisney Top 10 Packing Tips.

    Zina, your trip is approaching soon! Be sure to also have the My Disney Experience Mobile App downloaded so that you can use all of the features including Mobile Food & Beverage Ordering. I also suggest advanced dining reservations. If you do not have any, make a few (depending on the length of your stay). We love dining with the characters at Topolino's Terrace - Flavors of the Riviera!

    Magic and Memories,
