    I ordered tickets online, I keep seeing posts about a “card” to use for your tickets and memory maker. Do they mail this card or how do I obtain this? It’s our first time visiting Disney (as an adult anyways) and we are not staying at a Disney resort

    Hi Audrey! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. We're so happy you're here, and it looks like your vacation to the Most Magical Place is quickly approaching. Let the final countdown begin!

    Great question about the cards; it's a popular query, and one I answered just the other day for another guest. Audrey, when you purchased your theme park admission online, a confirmation number was provided to you. This number is used to link your tickets to your My Disney Experience account if that wasn't done automatically, and also to retrieve physical ticket media at any Walt Disney World Resort ticketing window. Will call ticketing windows are located in front of the entrance to each theme park as well as the Disney Ticket Center at Disney Springs. Be sure to have your confirmation number as well as photo identification on hand to receive your tickets.

    Your ticket card will serve as your admission to the theme parks and your key to redeeming FastPass+ experiences. When you approach an attraction for which you have a FastPass+ reservation, simply tap your admission card to the post adorned with a Mickey Mouse head, and you will be granted priority access to the attraction. Remember that you are able to select FastPass+ attractions up to 30 days in advance of each of your theme park days. You may choose 3 attractions each day in advance. My family loves planning and reserving our must-do experiences before our vacation even begins! As a family of four, we let each of our children select one attraction per day, and then my husband and I take turns choosing the third. For us, planning is a big part of the anticipation and fun of a Walt Disney World adventure.

    When you encounter Disney PhotoPass photographers in the theme parks, they will scan your admission card after taking your picture, and those photos will be automatically linked to your My Disney Experience account. You can view and select photos to purchase at any time during your visit and up to 45 days after the conclusion of your vacation. On select attractions, Disney PhotoPass captures the fun of your family enjoying the ride; be sure to tap your admission card near the exit of these attractions to make sure those moments are also linked to your My Disney Experience account. These candid shots are always some of my favorites!

    I hope that answers your question about admission cards, Audrey. If anything else comes up before you embark on your magical journey, please come back and see us again. We're always happy to help.
