Walt Disney World’s old paper ticketing system is now a thing of the past. It’s been replaced with a new planning tool – My Disney Experience – which combines innovative, wearable technology with a powerful smartphone app. By using the service, you’ll be able to combine all of your planning and reservation information into one location. It’s now easier than ever before!
My Disney Experience allows you to make Advance Dining Reservations (ADR) and Lightning Lane/Disney Genie+ selections, check out the park hours, interactive maps, up-to-the-minute wait times for attractions, and much more.
The app is easy to use, and you can access your account via a smartphone, tablet, or computer. Once you create an account, you’ll simply log in to make your reservations and check every detail of your trip.
Want to share these details with your travel companions? No problem! Once everyone in your party has set up their own My Disney Experience account, you’ll be able to share the details of your Disney trip with your connections.
The app also allows you to customize your MagicBand, that colorful wearable device everyone has on their wrist. Once you activate your MagicBand, the device will act as your park tickets, resort hotel key, verification for Genie+ and Lightning Lane selections, and payment system. Your account will be charged automatically when you purchase items like food and merchandise from your MagicBand. No need to open up your wallet!
If you have a Disney resort reservation, then your MagicBand is automatically linked to your My Disney Experience account. If not, you can purchase a MagicBand at a participating retail location and link it to your account.
