    Lori from VA Asked Note: This answer was provided prior to the change to planDisney and may still contain references to Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    If I purchased a magic band and tickets and linked them both to my Disney account do I still have to have my tickets activated at the park?

    Hey, hey, Lori and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. BOOM! You are a few days away from the most sensational, celebrational vacation ever at the place "where dreams come true." I have one question for you, will you please take me also?

    You do not need to carry your tickets if they are linked to your My Disney Experience account. Just strap on your MagicBand and head to the theme park entrance touchpoints. Once you contact the touchpoint and biometric scanner your tickets are activated, non-transferable, and assigned to you. If there are any issues just see a Cast Member dressed in plaid at the entrance. These Guest Relations Cast Members hold the pixie dust power to help you. All tickets and MagicBands are coded but I would take a picture of the back of the Admission Card (plastic ticket) on your smartphone just in case.

    While you are exploring the "World," make sure to head over Epcot for the 2019 Epcot International Flower & Garden Festival. From beautifully blooming topiaries, Garden Rocks Concert Series, and specialty festival food and merchandise to world-class attractions including IllumiNations: Reflections of Earth and Soarin' Around the World, this is a magical time of year to visit the Experimental Prototype Community of Tomorrow (EPCOT). My favorite topiary is located in the United Kingdom Pavilion with Winnie-the-Pooh and other friends from the Hundred Acre Wood.

    Disney Dad Tip: Disney is known for many things and food is definitely one of them. If you bumped into my family you might see us with Dole Whips, Werther's caramel covered popcorn from Karamel Küche, a "cronut" from the Refreshment Port, churros, or a Peanut Butter & Jelly Milk Shake from the Tune-In Lounge. Try some of these treats and take your taste buds on an adventure.

    Lori, enjoy making many Magical Memories.
