    I would like to have physical tickets to surprise my kids. I have the email with the confirmation number but would like something physical. How do I go about getting these?

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Melissa!

    I am so excited to hear that you will be surprising your children with the gift of magic! I would love to see their faces as they find out they are going to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    I have just spoken to a Cast Member who confirmed that physical theme park tickets can be shipped to your home at an additional cost, however, this request can only be made at the time of purchase. Since you have already received an e-mail with a ticket confirmation number, I have an idea that is more pixie-dusted than admission cards and that will surely get your kids even more excited about their Disney vacation: surprise your family with MagicBands!

    MagicBands come in different colors and designs and can be used to enter the theme parks and water parks with valid admission instead of cards. They can also be used to access plans and choices made with My Disney Experience, and link Disney PhotoPass content to your Disney account. If you are staying at a Disney Resort hotel, you can use your MagicBand to unlock the door of your hotel room and charge food and merchandise purchases to your account during your stay.

    MagicBands are available for purchase online at shopDisney.com, and Disney Resort hotel Guests can purchase them ahead of their visit at pre-arrival prices, including premium MagicBands. Be sure to link your Disney Resort hotel confirmation number to your Disney account, and after logging in select My Magic Bands and Cards to view available options. Remember to place your order at least 11 days before arrival if you would like to have your MagicBands shipped to your home to surprise your children.

    Thank you for stopping by with a great question, Melissa! I hope this information is helpful and that you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.
