    If I receive my tickets I'm the form of a paper voucher (through AAA or work discount program) is there any where to redeem for plastic card before arriving? My local Disney store maybe?

    Welcome back to Disney Parks Moms Panel, Nicole!

    Great question!

    To enjoy benefits of your Walt Disney World theme park ticket, you'll first need a confirmation number of your ticket purchase. Once you have the confirmation number (which you may receive electronically as well as on your voucher), enter that into your My Disney Experience account. Once you have done so, you can begin making your FastPass+ plans, even though you have yet to pick up your physical ticket at a Walt Disney World theme park.

    Before you purchase your Walt Disney World ticket, ensure that you'll receive that confirmation number right away, as that is essential to reaping the full benefits of your ticket, including making FastPass+ plans 30 days in advance (60 days in advance if staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel). When I purchase my discounted Disney Vacation Club Annual Pass directly from Walt Disney World's website, I immediately receive a confirmation number, and the paper voucher arrives in the mail later. Again, it's the confirmation number that is associated with my plans in My Disney Experience, so the system lets me make FP+ plans in advance of arrival.

    Bring that ticket voucher with you to any ticket window at a Walt Disney World theme park, and you'll be given the plastic ticket for use during your visit. Your FastPass+, dining and other plans, along with your ticket, are all still linked to your My Disney Experience account. Easy peasy!

    Have a wonderful trip to Walt Disney World, Nicole; send more questions as you think of them, too. We love to help!
