    After I purchase my tickets online and link them to the magic bands do we need to bring the actually plastic card?

    Hi Laquin,

    I hope you're dreaming lots of Disney dreams as you look forward to your trip, and I can't wait for you to arrive at The Most Magical Place on Earth this summer where all your dreams can come true!

    I'm happy to share that once you've purchased your theme park tickets and linked them to your My Disney Experience account, any MagicBands that you also have linked will give you access to the theme parks, no plastic card required! If you happen to have MagicBands linked to your account from a previous visit, the great news is that you'll be able to reuse them as long as their batteries are still good. If you'd like to purchase a new MagicBand, you may do so online at shopDisney prior to your trip or at a retail location once you arrive. Once you link that to your account, you're all set! Of course, there's another wonderful option available to use these days, too - the Disney MagicMobile service now allows you to use a smart device to access your theme park tickets! MagicBands, cards, and Disney MagicMobile may all be used interchangeably to access your My Disney Experience account, so please feel free to use whatever method you prefer!

    The other thing you'll want to make sure you consider is that during the phased reopening, it's not enough to have valid tickets; you'll also need Disney Park Pass reservations to access the theme parks. Once you have your tickets purchased and your reservations made, though, it's time to start counting down the days until your vacation begins! So exciting!

    Thanks so much for visiting us at planDisney, Laquin, and please feel free to come see us again if we can help with anything else. I hope you have a truly magical vacation this summer!
