    I purchased tickets online, have 2 confirmation numbers. I can't figure how to enter the park. Do I use the bar codes that we emailed with my confirmation? Can I program wrist bands ahead of time?

    Hi Mary Ellen and welcome to planDisney! Tick-tock! Your magical vacation to the Walt Disney World Resort is just a few short days away! I’m so glad you stopped in to see us with your question. I’m happy to help you!

    If you want to keep the whole process very simple, you can absolutely use the barcodes on your tickets to enter the theme parks. You won’t need to use a Magicband at all if you decide you don’t need it, but they are so very convenient to have!

    To use a Magicband during your visit, there are just a few quick steps you need to take. You can use this link to add your theme park tickets and your band to your My Disney Experience account. If you don’t have an account, no worries! You can easily create one right now. 

    Once you have your tickets and bands linked, you can assign them to the guests in your party. Now each person with a valid ticket, will be able to use a Magicband to enter the theme parks.
    The very last step is to go ahead and make Disney Park Pass Reservations for everyone in your travel party who will be visiting a theme park. Choose the date and the theme park you would like to visit and you will be ready to enjoy your vacation! 

    It may also be a good idea to visit the Know Before You Go section of the Disney site. It will tell you everything you need to know about health and safety measures being taken all over the resort. 

    Mary Ellen, I hope I’ve been helpful. Please feel free to come back to visit us if you have any more questions. It’s always our pleasure to help you! 

    Have a magical visit!
