Everything you need to know about using MyMagic+ during ticketed events

Sep 17, 2014 in "MyMagic+"

If you are planning to visit either Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween party or Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party this year, it may be the first time that you attend a party night in the MyMagic+ era.

If you are curious how you can use MyMagic+ during the event, read on for everything you need to know.

Linking Ticketed Event to MyMagic+

If you buy your party tickets directly from the 'My Disney Experience' website or app, your party tickets should automatically be linked to your 'My Disney Experience' account. If not, they can be manually linked.

A linked party ticket means that you do not have to hand over a paper ticket at the turnstiles to enter the event, and instead your RFID ticket or MagicBand becomes your park entry admission for the party. Once inside the park, you will still get a wristband as before.

Using FastPass+ at Ticketed Events

FastPass+ is not operational during ticketed special events, but there is something you should be aware of. Your event ticket will typically get you into the park at 4pm, which means that you can use FastPass+ between the hours of 4pm and 7pm (in the case of the two Magic Kingdom events).

Using MagicBands at Ticket Events

So what can you use a MagicBand for at one of the ticketed events? Just like on a normal park day, you can use a MagicBand to enter the park, buy food and merchandise with Touch-To-Pay, and use Disney PhotoPass and Memory Maker packages. FastPass+ is not available during the party, but is available from the earliest entry time at 4pm, through to the start of the party at 7pm.

Getting bored of your regular solid colored MagicBand? Disney has a range of special edition MagicBands, including a Haunted Mansion and Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party band (pictured above).
