    Purchase tickets and did park reservations with genie. Where can I get my cards prior to 1st park day so I don’t have to wait in line.

    Hey there, Cindy! Welcome to planDisney!

    Your Walt Disney World Resort vacation is only days away, and I bet you can smell those Sleepy Hollow Turkey Legs already! One of the most memorable parts of my Disney vacations has been the various smells that immediately trigger such great memories. In fact, I love the smell of Avatar Flight of Passage so much that I am currently on a quest to replicate it throughout my home!

    You can visit a Ticket Window outside any of the Theme Parks or the Disney Ticket Center in Disney Springs to pick up your ticket cards. Be sure to bring the credit card used to purchase the tickets, the person who purchased the tickets, and their photo ID with you when you pick up your Theme Park ticket cards. If you would like to obtain your ticket cards before your first park day, I recommend heading to the Ticket Center in Disney Springs. In my experience, the service here has always been prompt, and you can use the opportunity to grab lunch or dinner at some fantastic restaurants - try D-Luxe Burger or The Polite Pig - while browsing the shops of Disney Springs.  

    Another option is to use a MagicBand as your ticket to enter the Theme Parks. MagicBands are available for an additional cost but can be a convenient option for Guests. Since you wear a MagicBand on your wrist like a watch, I have found them to be much easier to manage. Nothing worse than losing your ticket card in the darkness of outer space while riding Space Mountain

    If neither of those options work, you can also use a Disney MagicMobile pass as your ticket to enter the Theme Parks. The Disney MagicMobile service allows Guests to tap into the parks using their Apple or Android device, provided they meet the minimum requirements. MagicMobile passes can be created in the My Disney Experience app and are a convenient option, even if only used as a backup to one of the previously mentioned options - especially in the case of my earlier Space Mountain example. 

    I hope this helps, Cindy! Soon you’ll be strolling down Main Street U.S.A., engulfed in the magic of Walt Disney World! 

    Until Next Time,
