The PLANNING continues with My Disney Experience (MDE). I cannot emphasize enough how important it is to set up a MDE account in advance!!
A My Disney Experience account is a great addition to your planning to track of all your Disney reservations and information. When you set up your MDE account each of your member needs their own avatar. You can go with classic like Mickey or Minnie, or you could choose many others.
You will want to use the MDE app on your smart phone. Dining reservations and so much more are stored here. This great app let’s know the times for all the shows, parades, fireworks and character greetings, and the wait times for all rides. It can even tell you where the closest bathroom is!! In addition, MDE will keep track of your on-site hotel reservations, dining reservations and Fastpass reservations.
Another cool Disney feature that comes free to on-site guest MagicBands. These are plastic wrist bands that you can link to your MDE account and if staying on site it is your ticket onto the Magical Express bus, your room key, your dining plan tracker, your park ticket, your Fastpass ticket, and charge card (if you set up for it). At the end of the day wave your Magic Band to unlock your door. No more looking for room key.
Also, think about when standing in line to get food or a snack and being able to just wave your Magic band, how cool!! Another neat option of the Magic band is to charge automatically to your hotel bill. If staying off-site it is your park ticket and your Fastpass ticket. It’s highly recommend to have a Magic Band for it’s ease of use. I suggest ordering them at www.disneystore.com in advance to avoid wasting time in the parks. make sure to connect to your MDE account in advance.
Remember that by taking the time to plan your days in the Disney Parks. You are planning for a magical vacation at the happiest place on earth! The planning adds value to your vacation. It takes away the stress and puts the fun in. After all, a Disney vacation is all about the fun!
