    We are arriving Spring Break '14. Reserved Riverside and looking to purchase hopper tickets through my union, can I link them to the magicbands or will I need to carry the tickets around with me as well? Can I have the DDP if I buy the tix seperately?


    You should be able to link the ParkHopper tickets you purchased through your union to your MagicBands through the My Disney Experience link on if they are one of Disney's current admission cards. Otherwise, you'll need to bring them with you to the park. If they are one of the current admission cards, you can link these tickets to your MagicBands under Plan and Manage/My Reservation. There, you can type in the ticket number into the indicated fields to link the tickets. Once linked, you do not have to carry your tickets with you. For my trip last weekend, I linked my Armed Forces Salute ticket (which was one of Disney's current hard admission cards, not a paper ticket) beforehand at home.

    Once your tickets are assigned to your MagicBand, you can confirm by clicking on the 'MagicBands and Cards' link under 'My Account'.

    Unfortunately, you cannot purchase the Disney Dining Plan if you did not purchase your tickets from Disney as a part of your vacation package and room. However, you can still make dining reservations and those will be linked to your MagicBand.

    Wishing y'all a magical vacation!

My family of 6 appreciates Disney's value! Although Ft. Wilderness is our second home, we've enjoyed the resorts for business, reunions and romantic getaways. For me, Disney also means dining: last count, I'd eaten at 55 restaurants around the World! Learn More About Whitney
