    I purchased e-tickets from a 3rd party and then purchased magic bands and uploaded all our info....Since we have these bands, do we still need to check in at ticket center? Or are we ready to pass on through the turnstile?

    Hi Patrick! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    I'm so excited for you! You are only a few days away from your magical Walt Disney World Resort vacation. You are going to have so much fun!

    I have actually done this before myself and pieced my vacation together instead of purchasing the entire vacation package. In my experience, once my tickets and my MagicBands were linked to each person in our My Disney Experience account, we didn't have to stop by the theme park ticket window. We were able to use our MagicBands to enter the theme parks with no problem at all.

    Each time we visit the theme parks, I always take along our tickets/ticket confirmation numbers just in case any issues should come up. Even though we haven't run into a problem yet, I like to be prepared, and it is much easier for Cast Members to correct an issue if they have access to your ticket information.

    Enjoy your upcoming trip, Patrick! Please visit us again with any other questions you may have!
