    why do i have to have tickets shipped if i have the magic bands. we arrive 0ct 16 and the expedited shipping says 0ct 14

    Hello Donna Marie!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. It is a great one! Once your Theme Park Admission is linked to your MagicBands by way of My Disney Experience, you will have all you need to enter the Parks. The actually Tickets (sometimes called Cards) are good to have for back-up...in case there is some kind of a glitch or they aren't linked to your MagicBands for some reason. I would definitely carry them with you, at least the first day you visit the Parks. Don't forget that you can link other things to your Theme Park Tickets and MagicBands through My Disney Experience, as well, such as Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPass+ choices and much more!

    Please let us know if there's anything else we can do to help with your planning.

    Here's wishing you a magical day!
