    I understand that that the Disney Springs hotels (Hilton) do not hand out magic bands, so what am I going to use for my fast passes? What is my “ticket?” How will I get into the park?

    Hello Joette!

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel with a great question!

    Only Guests staying at a Disney Resort hotel receive complimentary MagicBands, however, other Guests are welcome to purchase them! They can be found at any merchandise location at the Walt Disney World Resort, and one of my favorite places to buy them is at World of Disney store at Disney Springs. Besides being your theme park admission ticket, you MagicBand can also be used to redeem FastPass+ selections. Please note that you will have to link your MagicBand to your Disney account before being able to use it.

    If you do not wish to purchase a MagicBand, you can always use the regular admission card that looks just like a credit card. To get your ticket card, visit Guest Relations at Disney Springs or Will Call windows at the entrance of all four theme parks. Please, have your purchase confirmation with you, a photo ID, and the credit card used to purshed the tickets to retrieve you admission card. You will also use this card to check in at the entrance of attractions to redeem FastPass+ selections.

    Thank you for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel! I hope this helps you while planning and that you come back to visit us soon with more questions.

    Best magical wishes,
