    I am planning a December trip with family. I bought us the one park a day tickets (for 3 days) via the Disney app. What is the process for arrival - Do we get actual tickets at the park? If not, how do we use fast passes? We are staying OFF property.

    Hi Jyl,

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel! You have TICKETS!!!! That makes me so happy.

    Since you purchased the tickets using the My Disney Experience Mobile App, they should be linked to your My Disney Experience account. Given that you have plenty of time before your arrival date, you should receive your admission cards in the mail. You will use your admission cards to check-in for Fast Pass+ attractions in the parks. If you have any questions about your theme park tickets, you may also call 407-566-4985 to speak with a cast member.

    I assume you have started making plans to manage the traffic and crowds during the dates of your visit, especially since you are visiting during such a busy time of year. Be aware that Magic Kingdom has reached capacity during the Christmas holiday season and has been temporarily closed to non-resort guests. If you have not done so already, follow the Disney Parks Blog for updates and information. When I visited in early January this year, the crowds were still intense but we managed our time pretty well using our Fast Pass+ selections and checking wait times on the My Disney Experience Mobile App.

    Jyl, be sure to also make advanced dining reservations if you plan to eat at any table-service restaurants in the parks. We use advanced dining reservations to see some of our favorite characters - saves us lots of time in lines!

    Magic, memories and Minnie Mouse hugs,
