    Nate Asked

    My family is taking our 2nd trip to WDW late this summer. I would like to verify the procedure for connecting military tickets brought at our local MWR to our Magicbands. We are staying on property and will receive our tickets by July 22nd.

    Hi Nate!
    You all must be so excited to be taking your second vacation at the Walt Disney World Resort. I am a Florida Resident and an Annual Passholder and I still get excited!

    Your Morale, Welfare and Recreation office (MWR) should send you some (usually green) Exchange Passes; you will swap these for your tickets once you arrive at the Walt Disney World Resort at any ticket window or Guest Relations at Downtown Disney. If you have time, I would recommend doing that the day before you plan on visiting the parks or do it very early on your first day so you have more time to play and have fun. There should be a number on the back side of your Exchange Pass-this is the number you will enter into My Disney Experience to link your pass to your Magic Band. Please remember that you still have to bring your Exchange Pass and swap it for a real ticket (also remember to bring your CAC or other military ID to activate your Exchange Pass). The code just allows you to make your FastPass+ selections-it is not your actual park ticket.

    I hope this helps! Please come and visit us again anytime if you have any additional questions!!

    Best Wishes, 
    Amy B.
