    We are coming to Orlando but not staying on Disney property. We have already purchased tickets and are able to do the fast pass through the app but it says you need either a magic band or a card to enter. Any idea where to get the card at?

    Hi Adam,

    Thank you for visiting the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I think that I can help you with your question about MagicBands and cards.

    I am glad to hear that you have taken advantage of making Disney FastPass+ selections for your upcoming vacation. These will allow you to experience some attractions each day with a shorter wait time. I am also glad to hear that you are using the My Disney Experience mobile app to manage and make plans. This will come in even more handy when you are at the theme parks, as you can check current wait times and even make more Disney FastPass+ selections through the app once you have used your three pre-selected ones.

    I traveled to Walt Disney World with friends this summer who, like you, had purchased tickets from home, made sure they were linked in My Disney Experience, and used these to make Disney FastPass+ selections from home. These friends had received e-mails when they purchased their tickets that had bar codes on them. When we arrived at our first theme park, they took these e-mails to a ticket window where the bar codes were scanned, and they were given a card, the size and feel of a credit card, with their ticket media attached. They used these cards to gain access to both the theme parks and their Disney FastPass+ selections. You could also choose to purchase a MagicBand for this purpose. If you do not have an e-mail with a barcode, I suggest that you call Disney ticketing at 407-566-4985 to ask for further guidance on your specific situation.

    I hope that this information was helpful, Adam! Wishing you a magical vacation.
