    I purchase my Disney World ticket for park hopper option for January 16th, i was just wondering if when arriving I had to go to the box office and show my print out to receive a physical ticket, or if i scan my print out at the entrance

    Hi Lindsey and welcome to planDisney!

    Your magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is just over a week away! You are going to have a wonderful time!

    You have a couple of options when it comes to entering the theme parks. You can have a Cast Member scan the barcode on the email you received with your ticket confirmation, or you can print out your ticket before you arrive to have it handy. You can also create a Disney MagicMobile pass on your My Disney Experience app!

    Follow the instructions on this link to create your pass on your My Disney Experience app with just a few quick taps! If you have a MagicBand from a previous visit, you can also use it for your upcoming visit. Just make sure that your ticket is linked to you and any band already linked to your name can be used to enter the theme parks. 

    Lindsey, if you have purchased a Florida Resident ticket and did not enter your Proof of Florida Residency when you purchased your ticket, you will have to visit a theme park ticket window to activate your tickets. Once you show your Proof of Residency, you will be able to head to the theme park entrance to enjoy your magical day!

    Thanks for visiting us with your question. I hope you have an awesome visit!
