    Hi Teddy! Welcome to planDisney.

    Oh Boy! You and your family are a month away from your magical journey to the EARidescent 50th Anniversary Celebration! While you visit the theme parks, create a family scavenger hunt looking for the golden Disney Fab 50 Character Collection statues. They make the perfect selfie background to share with family back home. You have quite a few questions, let's get down to business.

    First, MagicBands are fun, cute, and a personal favorite of mine, but they are not required to gain entry into the theme parks. You can either use a complimentary ticket card or set up a digital Disney MagicMobile Service Pass on your eligible smart device. If you do not receive ticket cards ahead of your visit, Hakuna Matata! Stop by any ticket booth located outside of all the theme parks or visit the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. Please have your photo ID, the original form of payment, and proof of purchase with you.

    To set up your mobile pass, first, verify your tickets are linked to the My Disney Experience Mobile App. Open the app, click on the three horizontal lines in the bottom right-hand corner, and select "Tickets and Passes." If your tickets are not there, click on the "+" sign and tap "Link Tickets & Passes." Follow the prompts to add your tickets. A friendly reminder, you need both a valid theme park ticket and Disney Park Pass Reservation to visit the theme parks. You can review the availability calendar here to verify your dates. Now, go back and select "Disney MagicMobile" and click on the "+" sign, choose a guest, and again, follow the prompts to create your digital pass. I suggest adding your pass to your Apple Wallet, Apple watch, or digital wallet. Choose "Express Mode" which will eliminate the need to unlock your phone at the gates.

    Next, I had a friendly chat with a Cast Member. She informed me, that if you have booked air travel with Walt Disney World Resort, you can expect to have documents mailed to you 30 days in advance. If you did not, all documents will be electronic and can be linked and found through your My Disney Experience account. If you have any further questions, she advised you can either email Guest Services at guest.services@disneyworld.com or call 44 (0) 800 169 0730.

    A Walt Disney World Resort vacation for newbies can be overwhelming. I suggest you become very familiar with the mobile app. Visit Disney Parks Blog for all the current offerings. Browse our site at planDisney for many answers to common questions. Be sure to check out our video library and podcast. If we missed covering something or you find you have new questions, come back and visit us anytime.

    Keeping it Magical,
