    Do the tickets normally change in appearance from year to year? The ones we received in 2015 only had a silhouette of Mickey on them, the ones we recently received for our trip in May has different park atttactions on each one and also says Fast Pass+.

    Hi Kysha,

    I noticed, too, that the ticket design changed recently to add scenes from throughout Walt Disney World printed on the front of the cards. The tickets for several years had featured pictures of individual characters. No matter the design, the ticket will work in the same way. You can use the ticket card for entrance and for accessing FastPass+ reservations. Or you can link the tickets to MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account for ease of use.

    You will notice that the design of the MagicBand is different this year, too. The new MagicBand 2 has a slightly wider, flatter face. The disc is in the center can be removed and worn on a lanyard or carabiner instead of the wrist.

    Walt Disney World is always changing and evolving, whether its in the design of tickets and MagicBands or the addition of entire new lands in the theme parks, such as Pandora -- The World of Avatar, which debuts the week of your visit. That's part of what has kept my family coming back frequently over the past 20 years.

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Kysha. Please check back with us again if we can help you as you plan your dining reservations, your FastPass+ choices or any other experiences. Enjoy our visit!
