    I purchased our park tickets online, received and email and also linked them to my Disney app. We don’t have magic bands or a card, but I do have a barcode. When we get to the parks what do I do and where do I go? Do I go to a ticket booth to get cards?

    Hey there, Kerrah! Thanks for stopping by planDisney with your question. Let's get you ready for your amazing adventure at the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Ordering your tickets ahead of time is so smart. You're already well on your way to all the fun! Since you've also linked your tickets to your My Disney Experience account, don't forget to make your Disney Park Pass reservations for the Theme Parks you want to visit each day. You'll need to have your reservations squared away in advance, so it's an important step.

    You will need to exchange your email tickets in person for Admission Cards that you can then use throughout your visit. There are a couple of ways you can do that. First, you could stop by the Guest Services window at the entrance to the first Theme Park of your trip to pick up your tickets. You'll just need to bring the credit card you used to purchase your tickets and an ID. If you have time, though, your best bet would be to head over to Disney Springs the day before you plan to visit your first Theme Park and exchange your email tickets at the Disney Ticket Center there. That way, you can get right to the magic when you arrive at the Theme Park!

    Kerrah, since your visit is less than 60 days away, did you know that you can also start making dining reservations for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation right now? Check out all the scrumptious selections and choose some that strike your fancy. Then you'll be all set to feast like the Beast!

    I hope this helps you have a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort, Kerrah. Please come see us again if you have any more questions!

    Keep Disney Dreaming,

Meet the Panelist: Kathy, Florida

I've lived my whole life just an hour's drive from Walt Disney World, so I've been a regular visitor for as long as I can remember. Even after all these years and so many visits, I love that there's still so much to discover! Now that I'm a mom myself, seeing my favorite place through my son's eyes has given me a whole new perspective that I enjoy sharing with other parents of young children. Learn More About Kathy
