Walt Disney World ticket....what do you do first with it?

I bought my tickets for 7 nights with Park Hopper through Disney and received it by mail. There are no instructions in it on what to do. I understand you slide it in the machines ect but do I have to go to TTC first to show ID and get your finger electronically printed?

The last Time I had paper tickets I think, I cannot remember. I just love the electronic entry!

I will be there April 21st!!

Hi Charles! Just take your ticket right to the front gate of any park and they'll help you there mickey

You're getting so close! Enjoy your trip!

The first time you put your ticket into the slot in the turnstile, you will be asked to put your index finger on a "scanner" on top of the turnstile. It will scan your finger and some information about your fingerprint will be recorded on the magnetic strip on the back of your ticket. The next time you use your ticket you will also have to put your finger on the "scanner". This time it will compare your finger information with the information on your ticket. This way they know that your ticket is yours.

You will want to copy the numbers on your ticket in case it gets lost. If you lose it and have the numbers it can be replaced. If you lose it and don't have the numbers they can't. Not sure if that includes the voucher or the just the ticket, but I would copy both. The easiest way is to just take a pic.

And if its the new RFID ticket, I don't think there is a fingerprint involved anymore.

You still use your fingerprint mr.hub... Because if you didn't someone could easily steal your ticket... There is a fingerprint place on the new ones where you just hold your card over the circle Mickey head and the finger print thing is right next to it. Me and Mase established that it isn't any quicker then the old way it just looks cooler and will be even cooler once they get the wristbands because you won't have to constantly dig around in your wallet for your tickets.

Are the tickets they sent you green? Cause if they are you can use them in the RFID scanners... If not you can either use the tickets they sent you in the old turnstiles or exchange them out at Epcot in the Odessy building over by test track for the new ones

Okay Jess, I was wondering how this RFID made it more secure. In all the advertising, they never show anyone placing there finger anywhere they just show them placing the card or wrist band next to the reader.

and somehow the fingerprint readers associated with the RFID technolgy seem to be reading more consistently. I did not experience one single delay in April with a "red" light saying I had to redo it, like the paper ticket and reader did so often. mickey

Yeah I was wondering the same thing cause I didn't think they had finger things either until I got to use them
