I received an email from Disney this morning about turning in my “paper ticket” and getting the new touch to enter ticket.  If you are an AP holder check your email to learn all about the changes.

Touch to pay

Now Passholders can enjoy even easier entry into the Theme Parks. Our new cards will let you enter with just a simple touch using our innovative new main entrance touch points.

So how can you get these new cards?

Since many of our Passholders love to visit during the Epcot® International Flower & Garden Festival, we thought you might like to pick yours up on your next visit. So now through May 19, stop by the Odyssey Center during regular Park hours* on a day you have valid Theme Park admission for a convenient way to exchange your current paper Pass for a new card. The card will provide the same admission privileges as your current Pass and will allow you to use the new touch-to-enter feature at Theme Park main entrances. Cards must be used by the same person who originally used the paper Pass. (The best times to visit the Odyssey Center are Monday through Friday after 12 p.m.)

Please remember to bring your paper Pass and valid ID. The Odyssey Center at Epcot® is the only location for Passholders to complete the conversion process. At this time, you will not be able to exchange paper Passes for the new card at Park Ticket Windows. You can find the Odyssey Center between Test Track® Presented by Chevrolet® and the Mexico Pavilion.

For details, visit MyDisneyExperience.com/Passholder (link not viewable on a tablet device).

Over the coming months, we’ll share details on other options you’ll have to exchange your paper Pass, as well as new info on MyMagic+ and when MagicBands will be available to Passholders.

Passholders can also check out the latest MyMagic+ updates at MyDisneyExperience.com/Passholder. New info will be added throughout the year.
