    How do I get my swipe cards if I purchase tickets online

    Hi Stephanie!

    Purchasing tickets always makes a Walt Disney World Resort vacation seem so much closer!  When you purchase your theme park tickets online, you will have a couple of delivery options.  If you choose to have them delivered by "snail mail," you will receive hard card tickets right in your mailbox!  If you choose the email delivery method, you will receive a confirmation email with a single barcode.  This barcode will be used for all of the tickets purchased in the transaction.

    When you arrive at the parks, make sure you bring your confirmation email, the original card you used to make the ticket purchase, and a valid photo ID.  A Cast Member at the turnstiles at the park entrance will scan your confirmation email barcode and give you the hard card tickets that you can use for the rest of your trip!

    If you have active MagicBands attached to the accounts to which your tickets are assigned, you can skip these steps and just scan your MagicBands at the turnstiles!  Remember, if you purchase special promotional tickets, you may need to go to Guest Relations before heading to the park entrance.

    Even though you don't have your hard card tickets yet, you can still begin making FastPass+ selections as soon as your window opens!  Just make sure your tickets are attached to your My Disney Experience account, which you can do either online or on the My Disney Experience mobile app!  

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
