    Can someone provide an overview of what can be expected from the time you enter Magic Kingdom parking (what do lot attendants ask for?) to the when you enter the park? ("check-in"/ticket verification, security, & where do these things occur?)

    Hello and welcome to planDisney, Babak!

    I think that it is vital to have an idea of what to expect when you visit Magic Kingdom Park because “getting there” is a part of the journey that must take place to begin experiencing the fun! 

    When you arrive, a parking attendant will ask if you are a registered Guest of Disney Resort hotels. If you are, standard parking is included, and the only thing you will need is your MagicBand+ or Disney MagicMobile on your smartphone. They will scan, and you will be on your way. If you are not a guest, you will be expected to pay the fee for parking. You will then proceed to park, where you will find lot attendants showing you where to park (if you have a handicap placard, they will direct you to that lot). Once you have parked, you will make your way to the park’s entrance and then hop on the ferry or Walt Disney World Monorail Transportation to prepare for your arrival. You will proceed through security. Be sure to have your theme park tickets (MagicBand+ or Disney MobileMagic) handy so they can be scanned for your entry. After completing those steps, you will have arrived for a fun-filled day at Magic Kingdom Park. The entire process is designed to ensure a safe and pleasant visit for all guests.

    Please let us know if you have additional questions. 

    Have a magical time!
