    How can I request cards to access the park. We have admission and reservations but no actual magic band or card. Is this something you can get at the gate?

    Heigh-Ho Meredith,

    Your My Disney Experience profile is created, the app is downloaded, you have purchased Walt Disney World tickets and made Disney Park Pass reservations, now how do you access your tickets?  Hakuna Matata! Guests are able to access their Walt Disney World tickets the following three ways; a Disney MagicBand, Key to the World Card or digital pass. 

    Key to the World Cards and Digital Passes are both complimentary options for Guests. Keys to the World cards are hard copy tickets Guests can acquire at either the Front Desk of their Walt Disney World Resort or at any of the Guest Relations/Ticket Counters located outside of all four Walt Disney World Theme parks. Each Key to the World card is adorned with Mickey or one of his Fab Five Friends and is a magical little collector's item. Another option is creating a digital pass through the Disney MagicMobile service via your My Disney Experience app. Guests with eligible iPhones, Apple Watch or Google Pay enabled Android phones can design and create a digital pass to be stored on their device. Guests can share the digital pass with others in their party if they have similar devices, more specifically those with Apple devices. And if you put your Apple device in Express Mode, you will not need to open your digital wallet every time to find the ticket. Both the Keys to the World Card and digital pass will simply be scanned at the touch points for entry into the parks.

    Disney MagicBands are fashionable and functional bands, mainly worn around your wrist, and come in a variety of colors and designs allowing Guests to show their DisneySide. Disney MagicBands can be purchased on shopDisney or at many of the shops around the Walt Disney World Resort. If these are something you are interested in and because your visit is just around the River Bend and you need to consider shipping time I recommend waiting until you arrive. The shops, at the Walt Disney World Resort, have a wider variety and once purchased can easily be linked through your My Disney Experience. Cast Members can happily assist with the process.

    Before your arrival become comfortable navigating your My Disney Experience app and learn all about the Disney Genie, Disney Genie+ and/or Individual Lightning Lane services all of which will help create a Practically Perfect Itinerary. I hope this helps and we are excited to Welcome you Home in just a few short days. 

    Have a Magical Day,

    Amy M.

I am a Dreamer who has always believed dreams are meant to be the path to your future. Walt Disney, I believe, felt the same way, "All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them." Disney has always been proof that endless imagination and the passion to make them come to fruition is possible. I will never be to old for Disney, it is home to all of us Dreamers.
