    I am bringing 4 granddaughters in June. They were each given a gift card for their tickets. We are not staying on site. If they purchase tickets before we get there, will we be able to make fast passes and link them?

    Hi Barbara!

    I love planning Walt Disney World Resort vacations as soon as possible so that I can sit back and enjoy the magic while I am there.  This, of course, includes purchasing my theme park tickets early!

    If you choose to purchase your theme park tickets in advance, you can link them to your My Disney Experience accounts online or on the My Disney Experience mobile app!  You can do this if you choose to you have your tickets mailed to you or if you have a confirmation delivered by email.  When you go to link your tickets, simply follow the provided instructions to find the codes you will need to complete the process.

    Once you link your tickets to your My Disney Experience accounts, you will be able to make your FastPass+ selections as soon as your booking window opens!  Since you are not staying at a Walt Disney World Resort Hotel, this means that you will be able to begin making FastPass+ selections at 7 a.m. Eastern Time 30 days before you arrive.

    It is important to remember that if you choose the email confirmation delivery method for your tickets (and you do not have active MagicBands connected to your My Disney Experience accounts), you will need to bring your confirmation email, the card used to purchase the tickets, and a valid photo ID with you to the park entrance where a Cast Member will be able to give you your hard card tickets.

    Have a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow!
