    How do i get my tickets to the parks and what do we need for my family of 5 to get into the parks? I have reserved Magic Kingdom and Epcot. Also, how do we get into the water park that i paid for?

    Hi Heather, welcome to planDisney!

    I've done a lot of puzzles over the past few years, but my favorite puzzle to piece together is a Walt Disney World Resort vacation. To enter the theme parks, valid entry, park pass reservations, and a method of entry are currently required. It sounds like you already have the first two items on that list linked to your My Disney Experience account, Heather, so let's talk about the three options for park entry: MagicBand, admission card, and MagicMobile pass.

    MagicBands are a magical accessory that can be purchased online or on Disney property and must be linked to your My Disney Experience account before park entry. If you're staying at a Disney Resorts Collection hotel, you are eligible to purchase MagicBands at pre-arrival prices ahead of your visit in My Disney Experience. I'm keeping my eye out for MagicBand+ designs, which might make their appearance before your trip dates!   

    Admission cards can be obtained at any of the will call windows located outside of the theme park entrances, which typically open one hour before park opening. You can also pick up admission cards at the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. The 50th Anniversary designs make these cards great souvenEARS!  

    Disney MagicMobile service allows you to use the My Disney Experience mobile app to create a MagicMobile pass for park entry right on your iPhone, Apple Watch, or Google Pay enabled Android phone. You can create digital passes for other members of your Family and Friends list, though it is recommended that each person with their own My Disney Experience account create a MagicMobile pass on their device. 

    A park pass reservation is not currently required to enter the water parks, Heather, so you can make a splash with linked admission and your method of entry. Surf's up!

    Plan magic; planDisney.
