    We staying off property and will only be at Magic Kingdom for one day so don’t want to invest in Magic Bands. How do I get the cards to scan into the rides?

    Welcome to planDisney Karen!

    One perfect day the Magic Kingdom will be wonderful! To make the most of your day, you might want to add Genie+ to your Theme Park Tickets so you can skip the stand-by lines and zip through the Lightning Lane. This is a real time saver! 

    With Disney MagicMobile Service, there is no need to get a MagicBand. You can access your Theme Park Tickets right on your phone. If you prefer, you can stop by Guest Relations or any ticket window and get a card that can be used as your ticket. I added my ticket to my wallet on my phone and just use my Apple watch to scan into the parks and for the Lightning Lane. So many options to choose from!

    While at the Magic Kingdom, you might want to book a Dining Reservation. Tony's Town Square Restaurant is always a hit with its traditional Italian fare. For a great view of Cinderella Castle, book a table at the Plaza Restaurant. They serve great sandwiches and fabulous desserts. 

    Wishing you a Mickey-magical day at the Magic Kingdom!

Meet the Panelist: Cathy, Ohio

Hi, I'm Cathy from Cleveland. I love to travel, especially in the winter to escape the snow and cold of Ohio! My husband and 2 kids share my enthusiasm for travel, so we enjoy our adventures together whether it is hiking at a National Park, sailing on a Disney Cruise Ship, or going to Walt Disney World which is our home away from home. My husband proposed to me in front of Cinderella Castle and we have not stopped visiting ever since! It's a blast helping guests here at planDisney!
