    I have purchased tickets for Disney world in June. What's the next step re: cards and /or magic bands? How do I get in the park?

    Hi Susan, welcome back to planDisney!

    In less than two months you will be basking in the EARidescent glow of Cinderella Castle, shining as a Beacon of Magic during Walt Disney World Resort's 50th Anniversary CelebrationAll those days watching from the windows, now let's get you in the park to see the lights!

    I'm glad to hear you've got your park tickets. The important next step is to link them to your My Disney Experience account, check the Theme Park Reservation Availability Calendar, and make a theme park reservation using the Disney Park Pass reservation system for each person in your party for each park day. Valid admission and theme park reservations are currently required for theme park entry.

    The last thing you'll need to see the lights is a method of theme park entry: MagicBand, Disney MagicMobile pass, and/or admission card. Any of these items will communicate the information you have in your My Disney Experience mobile app with the Mickey touchpoints found at the park entrance and all Lightning Lane entrances.

    MagicBands can be purchased online or at various retail locations throughout Walt Disney World Resort such as Disney Pin Traders at Disney Springs. They must be linked to your My Disney Experience account before use. I find having my ticket on my wrist to be extremely convenient. 

    Disney MagicMobile service, found in the My Disney Experience mobile app, lets you download and save a MagicMobile pass to your digital wallet for use on eligible iPhones, Apple Watches, and Google pay enabled Android phones. Adults with their own My Disney Experience accounts should create MagicMobile passes from their own phones, though you can download additional passes for any children or adults' My Disney Experience profiles that you manage.  

    Admission cards can be obtained at a Guest Relations or ticket window located outside each theme park entrance or the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. Be prepared to show your ticket confirmation email, the card used for purchase, and a valid government-issued photo ID. 

    Once that Mickey touchpoint turns green, Susan, you'll know exactly what Rapunzel meant when she sang, standing here, it's all so clear, I'm where I'm meant to be. My last tip is to be sure and check out the floating lights that are a part of Disney Enchantment at Magic Kingdom park and Harmonious at EPCOT. 

    Plan magic; planDisney.
