    I understand that we do not receive the magic bands anymore, but should I have received the plastic ticket in the mail? We go in three weeks.

    Hello Andrea, and welcome to planDisney

    You must be so excited that your vacation is just a few weeks away; it's the perfect time to be reviewing those last-minute details while you count down the final days until the magic begins. I recommend following us on social media and checking the Disney Parks Blog for quick tips and real-time updates from the theme parks before you depart.

    If you decided to forego the purchase of new MagicBands and are not bringing them from a previous visit, you'll need to stop by the front desk of your resort hotel to pick up Key to the World Cards. You can use these cards the same way you used MagicBands in the past; they will unlock your resort room, serve as your theme park admission, charge purchases to your resort, and link Disney PhotoPass images. They are also adorable and feature some of our favorite Disney pals like Pluto, Daisy Duck, and Mickey Mouse. Hot dog! 

    I hope you have a fantastic visit, Andrea. Springtime in the Walt Disney World Resort is especially beautiful as the theme parks are abloom with seasonal flora. I can't wait to see the topiaries and taste my way around the Outdoor Kitchens later this month at the Taste of EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival. My tummy is rumbly just thinking about the mini funnel cake topped with lemon cheesecake ice cream and blueberries; I'll be enjoying one of those over by the American Adventure in just a few weeks! Thanks for stopping by planDisney, and we'll see ya real soon.
