    Hi! If I am going to the parks with both Florida residents and non-Florida residents, and we all have our tickets linked to our Magic Bands can we all skip going to guest services?

    Hey there, Kristina, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is less than a month away! I bet you can practically taste the Mickey waffles, right?

    It sure sounds like you have your group's plans in place since you've got your My Disney Experience accounts set up and your MagicBands linked. You are a planning superstar, and that makes your Disney Mom pals grin from Mickey ear to Mickey ear!

    It's great that the Florida residents in your group are linked up, too! That means you were able to include them when making your FastPass+ selections and other plans. Even if they're already all set up with tickets and MagicBands, if your friends will be using their Florida resident tickets for the first time, they'll need to stop by Guest Relations to show proof of Florida residency before they can actually enter a Theme Park. If the tickets have been used at least once before, there's no need to show ID again. The rest of your party should be able to just head straight for the Park entrance.

    Kristina, if your Florida friends can pop over to Disney Springs sometime before you arrive, they can show their proof of residency at the Guest Relations location there to activate their tickets in advance and save a little time on your Theme Park day. That way you can all just tap your MagicBands at the Park entrance and get right to the magic!

    I hope this helps you plan a magical day with your friends and family, Kristina. Please pop on over again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
