    I bought my Disney tickets first, but now I want to stay at a resort to take advantage of the extra magic hours. If I book a resort, can I link my tickets to the resort?

    Hello Sandra!  Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel.

    When planning a Walt Disney World Resort vacation, the most effective way I find to organize all of the many facets of my trip are through a My Disney Experience Account.

    Once you sign-up online for an account, you may link your current Theme Park Tickets to Family and Friends and book new Walt Disney World Resort Hotel Reservations online. Once you begin using your My Disney Experience Account everything will be automatically linked.  If Guests under a Walt Disney World Resort Reservation have tickets linked to them under this account, they will automatically be able to gain admittance for Extra Magic Hours at Walt Disney World Resort Theme Parks.

    Be sure to take a look at any Special Offers that may be available for your Walt Disney World Resort vacation before booking.

    For my vacations, I usually book my Room-Only Reservations first and purchase my Theme Park Tickets later. As soon as I assign my Tickets to the Guests I have already linked in my Room-Only Reservations, the ability to enjoy Extra Magic Hours and all of the other benefits that apply to Guests for staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel will automatically apply to them as well.

    You may also book your stay at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel by calling (407)939-1936. Just be sure to provide the email address you use for your My Disney Experience Account so the Cast Member will be able to link everything for you.

    Happy Planning!
