Our Disney Tickets Are 100% RFID and FastPass+ Enabled

by Leap on January 2, 2015 377

Editor’s Note: We frogs loving nothing more than helping you all have the very best theme park vacation, so we're very excited to introduce our brand-new, downloadable Guide to FastPass+. We've written extensively on this topic, and we've taken all of that advice and boiled it down into one easy-to-read, take-it-with-you-anywhere format. The Frog Family Guide to FastPass+ covers all of the basics, including instructions for making reservations, FastPass+ priorities by park, kiosk locations and our very best tips! 

================> Get the guide now! <================

 

All of our Disney World tickets are FastPass+ enabled.

This means you can link your tickets via the My Disney Experience app and website, which allows you to pre-book reservations to attractions and entertainment. Whether you are a resort guest or a park guest, you are allowed to advance book three FastPass+ attraction or entertainment selections per day from any one park.

Guests staying at a Walt Disney World Resort hotel can make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance of check-in for their entire length of stay, while guests staying offsite can make reservations up to 30 days in advance of each day of their theme park visitWe recommend that you buy your Disney tickets far enough in advance that you can book your FastPass+ selections 60 or 30 days out. For those of you who are close to your FastPass+ booking window, once your order has been processed, you can contact our customer service to obtain your ticket number to link your tickets in My Disney Experience.

Disney World RFID tickets

RFID Tickets & Obtaining MagicBands

MagicBands offer the same touch-to-enter functionality as Disney World RFID-enabled tickets in the parks, but added convenience, since you wear the band vs. having to pull it out of a pocket, wallet or backpack. MagicBands are provided to guests staying at a Disney World resort free of charge, and serve as room key and check-in for Disney's Magical Express transportation service to and from the airport. They are either shipped directly ahead of your trip or provided to you at check-in (they are not shipped to all countries).

MagicBands are also available for purchase in the parks, at Downtown Disney and online. Guests have the option of purchasing MagicBands and linking them to a My Disney Experience profile later, which allows them to be purchased as gifts or for future trips. Disney World RFID-enabled tickets offer the same touch-to-enter functionality at MagicBands.

All Undercover Tourist tickets offer the same functionality as a ticket purchased directly from Disney.

You'll find more resources on FastPass+ and Disney World RFID tickets, including answers to common questions, on our Disney FastPass+ Planning page inside the Orlando Planning Timeline. As always, our shipping is free! So let's get that vacation started with Disney World FastPass+ enabled tickets!

We went to Walt Disney World in March of this year and stayed on property so we have our magicbands from that trip. We are going again this November. My magicbands are already linked to my Disney Experience account, and now I have linked my new tickets I purchased from UC. Do I have to do something special to link my new tickets to my old magicbands or am I able to just use the magicbands now because they are all on my account?

Hello, so we are staying offsite and I have purchased magic bands and tickets seperately. Can I link the bands to my tickets before we go, or do I have to do that on site?

Just to clarify, if my Magic Bands are showing as "active" and I have linked my (UT) tickets to MDE, I don't have to link them together, right? They basically "auto-sync"? I am looking on MDE to link a specific Magic Band to a specific UT ticket I added, but can't find anything.

We will be arriving very early in the morning. We have a tour that starts at 8:00 a.m. Will we need to check into our hotel to activate magic band and DDP, or can we go straight to the MK since we know that no rooms will be ready that early? Thanks!

Hi Nancy,

You can go straight to Magic Kingdom. Your MagicBands should be ready to go. You can verify this inside My Disney Experience. If you click on MagicBands, you should see that they are active.

I have been reading these questions & answers and am confused. Is there any disadvantage to purchasing e -tickets from you, instead of mailed ones. Wondering why people are asking to get their ticket numbers over the phone while they wait for the mailed tickets. Wouldn't it make more sense to purchase an e-ticket, and then be able to link it to MDE right away and start reserving their Fast Pass+ etc. I am getting ready to purchase tickets and e-tickets seem to make the most sense, so just want to make sure I am not missing something.

Reply
Aug 13, 2015 at 6:07 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Lori,

Thanks for reading! We only recently rolled out Disney E-Tickets, so that is the reason you saw people asking for ticket numbers. The only thing to keep in mind with the E-Tickets is that you must either have or purchase a MagicBand in advance or go to guest relations at the park to exchange them for physical ticket. If you have the MagicBand, though, you can just use that.

Hi,

My inlaws are looking to come with us to Disney this year. In the past we have always come to your site to order Disney cards for a 5 day hopper pass. I suggested that to them and they are asking me if they can just do an eticket instead. I am finding it hard to find decent information about the eticket though. Is it an electronic ticket they get immediately and can just use on their phone to scan into the gates each morning or do they need to go to guest services upon first day of entrance and purchase a magic band to "attach" the eticket to? (If so how much are the bands?) And secondly, would an eticket also have the option of hopper passes? Thank you SO much for any help you can give!

Reply
Sep 14, 2015 at 8:54 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Rachel,

Thank you for recommending us! Your in-laws can get Disney E-Tickets for Magic Your Way or Park Hoppers. If they attach the tickets to MagicBands, they are good to go when they get to the park. If they do not have MagicBands, they would need to exchange them at guest services for physical tickets.

Just a question on procedure. My plan is to order tickets from you for our trip next year (we are staying offsite). Then at the appropriate times I will make reservations through MDE. I'm still deciding on whether to get Magic Bands or not. If I do, I will order them online. Can the Magic Band be linked anytime? In other words, is it best to link them before or after making reservations, or is there no difference? And what happens to the tickets that have already been linked- could my husband, say, choose to use the ticket version if he doesn't want a Magic Band?

Reply
Aug 3, 2015 at 7:58 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Cara,

The bands and tickets can be used interchangably. Both will work. It doesn't matter whether you link your band before or after you make FastPass+ reservations. The important thing is to make sure your tickets are linked before your reservation window opens.

We are a family of 5 including one kid, and will visit WDW during 22 jul to 29 jul and booked wyndham boonet creek hotel for our stay accordingly. Tentatively we have planned to buy following tickets

[1] 3 day park to park hopper with water fun park

[2] one day legoland florida

[3] 2-day universal orlando with one day free

Please advise if those are fine otherwise advise which tickets we should buy and how much advance in order to have our vacation memorable,

Please guide to have RFID, Fastpass+, Magic Band or any other App in order to reduce waiting.

Also plese let us know how we can have our tickets refund if we need during our stay period.

So, just trying to understand the FastPass benefit for off-property families. (I just learned these bands will cost our family about $50. I would rather spend that money elsewhere.) Ques 1. The UCT tickets we received in the mail, that appear like credit cards, are FP enabled, so conceivably, we don't need to buy these bands but can pull out the credit cards at the FP machines, correct? Ques 2, can we still pre-arrange the FP schedule online if we don't have the bands or do we have to wait until they are enabled first on day 1? Thanks so much!

Hi Nicole,

FastPass+ is free, you don't need a credit card, and yes, you can use the tickets you bought from us. They work exactly like MagicBands, which are optional. You can book your FastPass+ reservation up to 30 days in advance of your first day in the theme park. You just need to create an account in MyDisneyExperience and link your tickets. Please check out our brand-new Guide to FastPass+. I think you'll find all of the information you need.

Hi Raza,

The only thing I would need to know is when you plan to use your Disney water fun visits? With the ticket you have, you would get 3 days in the parks and then 3 additional fun visits to spend at the water parks or DisneyQuest. With this plan, you likely wouldn't be able to use all of your fun visits, but this ticket is likely still more economical if you plan to visit a water park than purchasing these tickets separately.

For FastPass+, we've put together a downloadable guide that you can check out. We have a terrific refund policy - you can check out the specifics here!

Hi Carol,

You can go ahead and link MagicBands and accounts now. I would also go ahead and make FastPass+ reservations for everyone except your friend. Once he buys his ticket, then all you would need to do is link the ticket and then try to copy over your FastPass+ reservations to him. Use the app for this, as he can scan the ticket quickly. It's possible he won't get the exact same times, but MDE will attempt to get them close (usually with some overlap provided there is availability).

Hi FrogBlog,

We live in Europe country that undercovertourist doesn't offer mail delivery. If for example i buy both WDW and Universal tickets much in advance (like more than half a year in advance) and we book a hotel in advance as well, can i arrange with undercovertourist the ticket delivery to the hotel, so we c, and woud get it on the receiption as soon as we arrive? OR Can both tickets be picked up at the parks' gates what about so much in advance purchase- will they keep them for more than half a year for us? Or may be international delivery still could be arranged with undercovertourist even for non indicated countries? We are going to use all of the transfers and not hire a car, so other local at parks' gate or hotel's receiption pick up point is going to be a problem for us....

Reply
Mar 5, 2015 at 12:01 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi MickeyMom,

You need to create a My Disney Experience account on the website or the app and then link your tickets to each member of your party. For older tickets, we have found it's easier to use the app, because you can actually scan the bar code rather than key it in. Once your tickets are added, you can walk through the process of making FastPass+ reservations. If you are staying on-site, your MagicBand will be mailed or provided to you upon check-in. If you staying off-site, you can purchase MagicBands online at the Disney Store or in park. Your tickets offer the same functionality as MagicBands, so it is up to you if you wish to purchase them.

We offer more resources on our Guide to FastPass+.

Hope this helps!

The Disney trip I have planned with my family is in 3 weeks, so this is somewhat urgent. I am aware that it is possible to purchase a regular Disney Theme Park ticket at a local Disney Store. My question is: can I purchase a Magic Band at my local Disney Store? Then let's say the day before we enter the theme park, I activate/link the ticket to my Magic Band via the Disney World Experience app. Or is the only way to purchase it online? P.s we're not staying at a Walt Disney Resort.

Hi Kennedy,

Unfortunately, you can only purchase online or on site. What I would suggest is you go ahead and book FastPass+ reservations if you haven't already. If you are arriving early enough, you could purchase the band at Downtown Disney and then head to the park the next day.

What is the best way to upgrade a discounted UCT WDW ticket (purchased prior to the price increase) to an annual pass? Will I still benefit from the discount and old price, or will Disney charge me for the discount, price increase PLUS the price difference between the regular ticket price and AP?

Hi Kel,

Your best chance of preserving your savings is to use your ticket at least one day before upgrading. If the cast member helping you doesn't preserve the savings, I would suggest you try a different cast member later.

Hello,

I already purchased my ticket and it is being shipped to my house. I am going with family and we are trying to coordinate fast pass times. They already have their tickets & fast passes. Is there any way I can get an ID number so that I can book my fast passes now?

I just received my WDW passes. Can I place them in a plastic card sleeve attached to a lanyard? Will the ticket need to be removed for scanning on the rides? Thank you.

Hi Erica,

You can put them in a plastic sleeve in a lanyard, just don't poke a hole in them. It's possible you would need to remove them at FastPass+ entrances, but it's worth testing out. Let us know what you find out!

URGENT! Hi, I'm hoping to buy DisneyWorld and Universal Studios Orlando annual passes to beat the price increase, please provide the 2 links, thanks. Also, I'm from Asia, plan to be in Orlando sometime in March, not sure exact dates yet, could you mail me the tickets later AFTER I arrived in Orlando?

Hi Silver,

You can purchase tickets here. Once you are in Orlando, we cannot mail tickets, but we do have a pickup location.

Best,

I received my salute tickets early from Shades of Green and added them to MDE. I purchased the magic bands online and now I can't figure out how to link them. Is there a way to link the magic bands online or in the app ahead of time?

Reply
Feb 19, 2015 at 9:46 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Trinity,

Yes, you will need to login to your My Disney Experience account.

Using the website: Link your MagicBand by selecting My Profile under My Disney Experience, then selecting MagicBands & Cards. Select Link a MagicBand or Card. Then enter the ID number on the back of the MagicBand.

Using the app: Select My Profile under the main menu, then MagicBands & Cards. Select Link a MagicBand or Card and then enter the ID number on the back of the MagicBand.

Hope this helps!

We will be staying at the DoubleTree Suites Lake Buena Vista for our Disney stay. We purchased our Disney tickets through Undercover Tourist. Are we eligible for free Magic Bands and free transportation to and from the Orlando airport? Information we received about the resort implied we should be, but I would like to confirm. Thanks.

Hi Mike,

This is not a Disney World resort, although it's very close to Downtown Disney and does provide transportation to the parks. It may provide its own transportation from the airport, but you would need confirm directly with the hotel. Since it's not a Disney hotel, you would not receive MagicBands for free, but you could purchase them online before you leave from the Disney Store or in the parks.

HI! We are staying at a Disney resort hotel over night and we're going to Epcot on the first day and Magic Kingdom the second day AFTER we check out of the hotel. My question is are we still going to be able to use our magic bands the second day after we check out? I figured the tickets will still work but will we be able to charge food and such with our bands or will we have to use our cards? THANKS! :)

Hi Traci,

Yes, you can use the bands, you just won't be able to use them for credit card purchases once you've checked out.

Is it possible to add one more day to the 3 day ticket that has already been purchased from you? I am going to link my 3 day ticket to my magic band, then how and where would I be able to add one more day once we are at Disney Resort? In that case, am I paying the difference or a full 1 day ticket price?

Reply
Feb 12, 2015 at 12:28 p.m. FrogBlog Says...

Tulip,

Yes, you can add one more day to your ticket, and we recommend that you do that at guest services after you have entered the park at least once so that you have the best chance of preserving your savings from us. If you have any more questions about your order, please contact customer service directly at 1-800-846-1302 or info@undercovertourist.com

If I have reservations for a Thursday ato a resort along with separate ticket destinations but we are arriving a day prior to check in can we go ahead and use a park ticket with our magic bands?

Hi! So I purchased tickets from you - no issues there - and am staying at AK in May however on MDE it is only giving me 30 days to book FP+ and not 60 - my hotel is linked so do you have any idea why this is happening? I will be calling too but thought I would ask, thank you!

Reply
Feb 9, 2015 at 8:34 a.m. FrogBlog Says...

Hi Lizzie,

Your ability to book FastPasses 60 days is directly tied to staying at a Disney resort. If your hotel is linked in MDE, there should not be a problem booking 60 days out. I would call Disney immediately so that you can book.

Hi there,

This question has probaby been answered, but just to confirm -- I just linked my pass to My Disney Experience and it lists the card as 'active.' I will not be going to WDW until march and I am assuming this just means I can load my card with fastpass+ options and such and not that it will expire after 14 days, right?

Sorry if this is confusing/has already been answered!

Thank you so much!

Hi Lauren,

You are correct. The ticket activation is tied to when you actually enter the park.

Are magic bands from last year reusable for this year if we are staying off site this time? If so how do they get set up?

Reply

Hi Gene,

Your MagicBands are reusable and you should not have to do anything with them to set them up provided you have not made them inactive since your last trip. You can view this in My Disney Experience. If you are not staying onsite, they cannot be used for purchases, but you can use them for touch-to-enter access to the park and on the rides with FastPasses.

If we purchase our tickets through you well in advance and have them mailed to us, will we then be able to reserve fast passes 60 days prior to arrival.

Your ability to make FastPass+ reservations up to 60 days in advance is dependent on you staying at a Disney World Resort.

I decided make a split stay in our next trip to WDW. We're going to stay in Coronado Hotel 5 nights and then another 2 in AKL.

We bought the tickets for 7 days in undercovertourist, of course.

Can we associate these tickets to the magic bands give us when we make check in at the first hotel? or It's possible do it now in MDE?

Thks!

Hi Evelin,

You can go ahead and link your tickets now in MDE and make your FastPass+ reservations 60 days out for your length of stay. I would do that as soon as it becomes available to you. Your MagicBands will be mailed or ready for you at check-in and should already be active in MDE.

Keep hopping!
