    I am staying at a timeshare, non-Disney, resort. I need to order tickets for our first time trip. How do I order online & will the tickets & magic bands be mailed or do I pick up at a will call location?

    Hi Marsha!

    Thanks for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel with your question. I am so excited for your upcoming Walt Disney World vacation. The first thing I would recommend you do is create a My Disney Experience account. Once you have done this, it is easy to link every element of your trip together. From here you can purchase Theme Park Tickets, make Advanced Dining Reservations, choose your FastPass+ Experiences and much more. As far as your MagicBands go, only those Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel receive complimentary MagicBands. In your case, you will need to purchase your own. You can do this ahead of time...either online or by using the Shop Disney Parks app on your smartphone. You can also purchase MagicBands after you arrive although, if you have enough time to receive them in the mail before you leave for your trip, I would recommend buying them ahead of time so you can have them already linked in your My Disney Experience account, as well. Either way, once you link your MagicBands to your account, it will then be connected to your Theme Park Tickets, Advanced Dining Reservations, FastPss+ choices and more.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. We love helping Guests so please come back if there is anything else we can do to help.

    Have a magical day!
