    Will our passes at will call allow us into the park if we don’t have magic bands?

    Hi John! Welcome to planDisney!

    I bet you can't wait to begin your Walt Disney World Resort vacation in just over one week! There are a lot of exciting things happening around the Most Magical Place on Earth, including the Walt Disney World Resort 50th anniversary celebration and the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival (my favorite!). It will be a trip to remember!

    Good news! When you pick up your passes, whether they are admission cards for Walt Disney World theme park tickets or Annual Passes, you can use them to enter the theme parks. You will simply scan your pass/admission card and your fingerprint at the entrance to gain admittance. You can do this for your entire vacation or you can purchase MagicBands to use instead.

    If you purchase MagicBands during your trip, simply link them to your My Disney Experience account, along with your theme park tickets/passes. When both items are linked to the same My Disney Experience account, they automagically work together so you can use your MagicBand to enter the theme parks, capture PhotoPass photos, and more!

    I hope this helps, John! Please let us know if you have any other questions.
