    Our trip is 32 days away and we're so excited. Everything is showing up correctly on the MDE app, but I was wondering about our physical tickets. Will Disney send us our physical tickets (cards) in the mail before our trip? Or do they not do that now?

    Hi there Randell! Welcome to planDisney, and congratulations on your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation, which is just around the corner! I am so excited that you’ll have a chance to visit the Most Magical Place on Earth in just one month!

    I can see how you may feel a little bit empty-handed without receiving something physical in the mail from Walt Disney World. However, with the technologies we have at our disposal these days, this is often no longer necessary! If you have linked your Theme Park Tickets to each Guest traveling within your My Disney Experience Account, you have many options at your disposal! First, any Magic Bands or Admission Cards linked to a Guest in your party will automatically be able to serve as Theme Park Ticket and Resort Hotel Room key if staying on Disney property! Also, you can use your My Disney Experience Mobile App and Magic Mobile to use your Mobile Device for Theme Park entry! If you are utilizing Disney’s Magical Express and have linked it to your reservation in advance, proceed to the Disney’s Magical Express Check-In Desk at Orlando International Airport, ideally with at least one MagicBand or Admission Card. If you have not yet linked it or do not have these items at your disposal, you may talk to the Cast Member at Disney’s Magical Express when you arrive. Do not forget to bring your luggage along for the ride! Once you are able, take advantage of Mobile Check-In. You may even be able to proceed directly to your Disney Resort Hotel Room without passing by the physical check-in desk, and perhaps even be able to open your Hotel Room door using your App or MagicBand!

    If you don’t have Admission Cards or Magic Bands, you can claim these at any Ticket Center, including Guest Relations at the entrance of any Disney Theme Parks and the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs! At any point during your vacation, you can pick a special MagicBand and link it to a Guest profile within My Disney Experience.

    Randell, I hope that I have been able to offer you some comfort in knowing that Disney vacations can be completely “hands-free” these days! If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to come back to see us or contact Disney Reservations via telephone. I hope you have an incredible trip and enjoy your stay!
