On-site Guests:

Off-site Guests:

Off-site guests refer to anyone staying on a property outside of the Walt Disney World Resort. In this instance, customers will only have a Disney ticket as opposed to a room and ticket and can start making FastPass+ reservations up to 30 days in advance.

What are the benefits?

The idea of MyMagic+ is that by planning your time in advance, you maximise your time in the Parks. This way, you get to spend quality time in the Parks with your friends and family, allowing you to savour every magical moment!

All of the following benefits can be booked in advance of your arrival. You can also take control of your itinerary on the go using Disney’s super-fast WiFi internet access, which is available throughout the Resort.

What’s the difference between MyMagic+, FastPass+ and My Disney Experience?

MyMagic+ is the overarching name given to the whole project. There are many many elements that go into making MyMagic+ work; for example the free WiFi that is available around the Parks to enable you to have the flexibility to be able to change your plans on the go. That and many other elements all go towards creating the whole MyMagic+ experience.

FastPass+ is the system used for making reservations for your favourite rides and attractions. This enables you to pre-book a time slot to beat the queues at your favourite attractions, book a character greeting or guarantee a seat at the shows. You can pre-book up to three FastPasses per day, all of which must initially be made at the same park. Once you have used all of them, you can book additional FastPasses, including at different parks, but you must use each one before making another.

My Disney Experience is where you create your personal profile and start building your personal holiday itinerary. With My Disney Experience you can:

  • Plan your holiday time at Walt Disney World Florida and familiarise yourself with all the rides and attractions available.
  • Use some great planning tools such as park maps which highlight the top attractions in each park.
  • Pre-book your favourite restaurants to ensure you can make the most of your time in the Parks.
  • Access Disney’s FastPass+ to pre-book your rides and attractions. If you aren’t sure what to select, try a FastPicks recommendation to quickly add multiple FastPass+ options to your plans!

With My Disney Experience, you can also:

  • Link your family and friends to your profile so you can share plans together.
  • View your day-by-day plans, including all your dining reservations, Wish List items and FastPass+ arrival window times.
  • Download the mobile app – with this you will be able to do everything listed above, plus see real-time attraction wait times and more!

Why should I book my Disney tickets through ATD?

At Attraction Tickets Direct we send you ‘Disney MyMagic+ ready tickets’ as soon as you have paid in full and we guarantee delivery within 7 days free of charge. This means that as soon as you receive your tickets you will be in a position to take full advantage of MyMagic+.

Customers who book through a travel agent may only receive their tickets a few days before they depart for Orlando. In this instance, it’s too late to take advantage of all the benefits that MyMagic+ offers, so the earlier you book the better.

Attraction Tickets Direct is the largest re-seller of Disney tickets in the UK. Our information comes directly from Disney rather than via any 3rd party and our staff are fully trained with regards to every aspect of MyMagic+.

So if you need any help at all in planning your holiday, we are very happy to help.

Do your Disney tickets include MyMagic+?

Yes, every Disney ticket that Attraction Tickets Direct sells includes MyMagic+, so every ticket bought through Attraction Tickets Direct will enable you to benefit from all the MyMagic+ features*.

Look out for the MyMagic+ Symbol on your tickets when you receive them!

What's the difference between the MyMagic+ Bands and Cards?

This is probably the single biggest area of confusion surrounding MyMagic+. We have had many customers asking about the difference between the two options, so hopefully the following information will dispel any myths.

Magic Bands are issued to on-site guests.

Any customers staying at a Disney Hotel will be issued with a Magic Band. The bands include the room and ticket details (plus dining if purchased) and are designed for on-site guests to wear for convenience.

Cards are issued to off-site guests.

Anyone who has bought a ticket only without a Disney Hotel will be issued with a Magic Card. The Magic Card, like the Magic Band, contains your ticket details and has been designed for off-site guests convenience around the Parks.

The very latest Cards look like this and display the MyMagic+ Symbol:

On the reverse you will be asked to sign your card before you activate it. The ticket number in the bottom left corner is the number you enter to complete your My Disney Experience profile, so you can begin to personalise your holiday plans.

Can I use my Card to pay on-site?

You will be able to use your card to gain admission to Disney theme Parks and Water Parks with valid admission. We are still awaiting confirmation on additional functionalities the card will feature.

My Memory Maker

My Memory Maker is essentially Disney’s Photo Pass package. If you are travelling from 2016 onwards, this is included into the price of your ticket and enables you to have professional quality photos taken of you and your group throughout the resort and loaded to your MagicBand or Card. You can then view and download these free of charge when you return home.

Can I swap my card for a band?

Guests not staying at a Disney hotel will be issued with a card, however should you wish to change this for a MagicBand, then this can be done at the parks, although there is a charge to purchase the MagicBand.

Frequently Asked Questions

What happens if I miss a reserved ride time or I want to make a change to my FastPass+ plans?

Changes can be made before you arrive at Disney or on the day using the free WiFi that's available throughout the Parks. By logging in to MyDisneyExperience, guests have the flexibility to change their plans on the go. If you miss a time don't worry. Providing there is availability later in the day, you can simply move your pre-booked ride time to a more suitable slot. If you would like help, kiosks are available throughout the Parks so you can access MyDisneyExperience from there. Alternatively, Cast Members are on hand to help and revised print-outs of your new itinerary can be provided.

How far in advance can I make restaurant reservations?

Dining reservations can be made up to 180 days in advance.
