    My aunt, who lives in FL, has offered to purchase tickets for the children in our group. She won't be joining us until the last day of our trip. Will we be able to redeem the tickets for the kids, or does she need to be with us?

    Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Jessi! Thanks for stopping by to bring us your question. It's our pleasure to assist you in planning an enchanted visit to the Walt Disney World resort, where the magic is endless!

    That is super sweet of your aunt to get your mouseketeers theme park tickets! I can't imagine a more magical gift. I bet they are so super excited to get there and make some unforgettable memories!

    Jessi, I have good news for you! Your aunt doesn't have to be present on the day she is unable to visit with you. As long as the tickets are linked to the guest's MagicBands in your My Disney Experience account, or if you have the actual cards, you should be good to go! I do highly recommend getting your tickets linked to your My Disney Experience account, so you can start planning the magic and reserving all your FastPass+ before you arrive!

    If you are staying at one of the magical resort hotels on property, you can begin booking your FastPass+ up to 60-days in advance. If you're staying off-property, 30-days in advance. So, don't forget to mark your calendar with those important planning dates.

    I hope you have a great time dreaming up and planning your visit. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to bring them our way!

    See ya real soon,
